The coffee table decor of your living room can make or break the atmosphere of the space and all its occupants. A coffee table that's plain and boring may not appeal to anyone who visits your home, but neither will an overly decorated coffee table. So how do you decorate a farmhouse coffee table? What are some of the best ways to make it enjoyable without distracting? Here are seven tips and tricks to help you get started on the decorating process straight from our leading interior designers with 20+ years of experience in décor ideas.
1. Add Flower Arrangements to Your Small Farmhouse Coffee Table
If you're a little tired of the typical coffee table decor, we've got great news: adding a silk flower arrangement to your small farmhouse coffee table is easier than you think. Pairing flowers with your coffee table add some lovely color and a piece of nature that can make any room feel more lively. You can go with traditional vases or go trendy with something like the Dancing Lady Liquid Illusion Floral Arrangement.
The best part about using silk flowers is that they don't need to be watered, so you'll never have to worry about spills or bugs when you're entertaining. Besides, silk plants or silk flowers are also perfect for those who don't have green thumbs! Combining a small farmhouse coffee table with floral arrangements is one of the best ways to bring some life into your home.
2. Experiment with Different Plant Heights
Plants can add a refreshing splash of green color to any room and bring a bit of the outdoors indoors. But one thing that gets in the way of adding a plant to your home or office is its height. They are perfect for farmhouse coffee table décor.
What if you don't have room in your apartment for large fake trees? Or what if you don't want to block the light that comes through your window? We recommend experimenting with varying heights for those who think they don't have space for plants because they're too tall.
You could try positioning some plants on top of shelves or bookcases, so they don't take up as much floor space. Or try hanging some plants from the ceiling using macrame which is a great way to add height without taking up space on the floor.
3. House Your Artificial Plant in a Rustic Basket

6. Don't Forget to Style Underneath the Table
Decorating a farmhouse coffee table seems simple, but it can be tough to master. You want to create a welcoming aesthetic, not too busy or cluttered, and not so sparse as to look under-done. So if you're struggling with this design challenge, we have a suggestion: don't forget to style underneath the table!
This can be as simple as adding a rug under your table or even just putting down something to protect your flooring. If you want to take it a step further, consider adding some potted plants or other decorative items to add visual interest and depth to the space.
7. Incorporate a mix of artificial plants in different planter sizes
Add a touch of nature to your living space with a combination of artificial plants in various planter sizes. Our farmhouse coffee table already has some greenery, but we're going to add three different faux plants, each in its planter, to make the look feel more natural and complete. Of course, you always want to decorate in odd numbers; this is known as the rule of three.
Incorporating other greenery adds depth and interest to your decor. And since our farmhouse coffee table is so simple, adding these plants really brings a sense of warmth and coziness to the space.
Most coffee tables have become favorites of traditional farmhouse decor. They get used mainly as end tables in a living room, the center table in the dining room, and often used as a lampstand. However, because of their large height, we can also place them underneath a wall shelf to create a display space that is both functional and decorative.
