Mini flower vases, artsy tomes and fauna-themed everything: some may write off such frippery as trivial trinkets, but we like to think of them as meticulously thought out design elements. The coffee table serves as the focal point of any living space –- creating layers and depth by way of design-y objets d’art plays an integral part in keeping your overall décor scheme cohesive.

And we’re here to tell you that a well-appointed surface doesn’t have to cost a fortune. We’ve compiled 15 pieces — priced at less than $50 a pop — which will significantly spruce up your coffee table real estate.
