Decorate it with some metallic accents such as a brass tray, a gold lamp, or a silver bowl to create a modern, sophisticated look.

Wood is always a good choice for a solid piece of furniture, as it doesn’t mark easily and will last for years without becoming outdated.

As for C-frames, you’ll wonder why you didn’t purchase furniture with one beforehand. Their design will conform to the shape of your sofa or chair - no more tables which stick out awkwardly and could be a potential tripping hazard.

Many of us have been working from home in the past year, but that doesn’t mean working conditions are ideal. By combining two important furniture pieces, a coffee table and a desk, you can have the best of both worlds.

To avoid your desk-coffee table hybrid looking out of place, opt for wood rather than metal or plastic, as most furniture in our living rooms tends to be made of wood or similar. Of course, there are exceptions – take a look at the furniture you already have and use it as inspiration to blend your new purchase!

With the mid-century craze not dying down any time soon, darker wood furniture has been popping up everywhere from bedrooms to living rooms. Design tip: bring a touch of warmth and tradition to your space by pairing charming wood finishes with brighter cushions instead of neutrals, as this will make the wood shine more.

Metallics are also very on-trend currently, and investing in this sleek pair of trays would tick all the boxes. Always make sure that, if you have metallics in one room and plan to add more, the metallics should be cohesive i.e. gold with gold, bronze with bronze. This prevents clashing and enhances cohesion. 

Additionally, when not in use you could place plants or candles on each tray for a glamorous look which would work well with their 1920s art deco vibe.
