As coffee tables and ottomans often stand in the centre of a room, they offer wonderful surface real estate for styling! Adding a large tray to your surface creates the perfect enclosed area for you to style with your favourite accessories and treasures and we've pulled together 29 of our favourite looks and tips to fill you with inspiration!
Make a statement with a large tray. Sometimes bigger is better and these large ottoman tray ideas are perfect surfaces on which to get creative with your styling... It's important to let your ottoman tray breathe as if it becomes too cluttered it will stop looking stylish and become messy. Choose a few select items and arrange them while allowing for space between them like this large tray from *Style Me Pretty.
If you want to stitch the corner closed, use an upholsterer's stitch (ladder stitch) or an invisible stitch. Another option is carefully running a small bead of hot glue inside the fold and pressing the fold into place.
Turn your ottoman or coffee table tray into a cosy light source by decorating it with an array of candle and tea light holders. This flickering light will enhance the space and create a warm, inviting environment - incorporate a couple of scented candles to fill your living area with your favourite aroma.
