Must-Have Items to Create an Instagrammable Coffee Table

We know it can be difficult to find the right balance when creating the perfect coffee table display. With that in mind, we have put together our must-have items to inspire you to create the coffee table display of your Instagram-posting dreams.

Books with Personality

For a luxurious coffee table look, we suggest selecting elegant and oversized hardback books. This could be anything from a beautiful designer fashion hardback, stunning recipe book, or city guide. Not only do these types of books look good, but they can also entertain your guests and can help inspire some wonderful conversation.

Top Tip: We suggest stacking two or three books neatly and place decorative objects, like flowers on top. Stacking will help make it feel more compact and less cluttered.

Latzio living have a great selection of coffee table books to choose from.

Luxurious Flowers

When selecting flowers, we recommend a small flower arrangement to avoid taking up too much space. We may be biased but our Pink Luxe Rose Box (other colour options available) would add the perfect colour pop and look dreamy on top of the book selection in the image above. Our Luxe Roses are stunning to look at and even better, they have been carefully preserved to half the growing process giving you a rose that lasts 1 year. You don’t need to remember to water them which means your coffee table flowers will look on point all year round.

Unique Object

To help balance out the two sides of the coffee table (on the opposite side of your stacked books) we recommend adding an object with a unique character. We have opted for the Heals Cobra Vase as we like the story behind the collection and the fact, they feature human-like silhouettes. Each vase is handmade, meaning no two pieces are the same. Ensure the object you select draws attention (make your guests go ‘-ohh’!) and that you alone appreciate looking at it when relaxing on the sofa or your favourite chair.  


Nothing can put a finishing touch to a coffee table better than candles and they can take relaxation to the next level. Our go-to candle brand is Diptysue, made in France they are renowned for their exceptional quality and their beautiful designs. Sticking to the roses theme, their Roses scented candle will not only look divine in the center of your coffee table but will also fill your room with the smell of freshly picked bouquets.  

We hope these ideas help get your creative juices flowing.
