As the focal point of the space, your coffee table has a big impact on not just what you see when you enter your living room, but also, what you feel. Does your low slung table encourage you to kick back? Is it piled with books to inspire reading and creativity? We love the idea of setting the tone for how you want to use your space by choosing a coffee table that’s perfect for your needs, and styling it in a way that aligns with your goals. Need some ideas? Below, browse three of our all time favorite living spaces, and see how we used furniture and decor exclusively from Target to recreate the looks.

1. Go boho.

Explore your inner artist in a bohemian living room with a large textural area rug, and low, plush seating that’s perfect for lounging with a big group. A large wooden coffee table allows plenty of surface area for inspiring books, records and drinks. We can’t imagine a better place to dim the lights, bust out the guitar, and have a night to remember.

2. Make it fun.

Create a space that’s perfect for the everyday with a streamlined coffee table that doubles as a homework station. White walls with pops of color and pattern are modern and chic, and inspire creativity in anyone who spends time in this vibrant living room.

3. Get zen.

Find inner peace in a living room that’s neutral and serene. Keep this coffee table cleared off to allow for clutter-free thinking, and draw on decor and textiles in casual materials to keep things warm and balanced. Then inhale, and exhale.
