Like our countertops in the kitchen, our coffee table has a similar minimal vibe. Sticking to only the essentials of a decorative tray and coasters, we love looking at all of the clear, empty space...
A bare coffee table is a cinch to wipe down with windex after a night of entertaining friends (not to mention, there's a spare place for everyone to dine). An uncluttered coffee table also affords you a temporary spot to place things when you return home from running errands--or a holding zone for out box items. A rule we use to maintain a clean and clear coffee table is to always put dishes and belongings back once we're done using them.
