Translation: we’re seeing a little less what’s-in-my-bag and a little more what’s-on-my-coffee-table. Our homes are now working overtime, and one of their most highly trafficked areas just so happens to be our living rooms: it’s an office; a favorite neighborhood restaurant; the go-to nail salon. And, since these spaces are getting so much extra love, we decided to pull a little Instagram inspiration on how to best zhuzh them up without buying a bunch of new furniture — and we landed on the coffee table.Setting your living space up for new multi-functioning success can either be as complex as picking out a new loveseat or as easy as purchasing a throw blanket. But, in the interest of striking a balance, we decided to go the cool coffee-table decor route. After scouring the trending depths of Instagram’s most stylish and functional coffee-table snapshots, we picked up nine stellar ideas: from mid-century modern sculptures to quirky candle pairings and colorful book stacks.
