The renewed interest for decoration attracted us to this fascinating coffee table by Loop&Co (a company from Bari), with its shelf made of plastered wood and decorated by hand with spray masks resembling the refined lace of Apulian tradition.

If, on the other hand, you want the center of the room to be the focus of attention, you will have to dare! Neon colors, especially in very dark settings, act as catalyzers. An example? Voilà by Bonaldo, in colored Plexiglas. The colors are lively and able to enrich any surrounding.

Once you’ve picked your coffee table, how will you decorate it? Learning to arrange objects harmoniously is an art you shouldn’t underestimate, just like weighting colors and volumes. The golden rule is to create rhythm with vases, flowers, books and candles. Inspire yourself to the more modern bookshops (Triennale di Milano, for example) to learn o arrange objects. The idea of placing a vase of flowers on top of books instead of directly on top of the table is a little tip. Start with these small tricks and you will see your house acquiring more and more style.
