How To Style Your Coffee Table: In the living room of a West Hollywood house, the mantel and coffee table display designer Mark D. Sikes's passions: boxes, books, and art from China and Paris flea markets. "When I see an empty table, I shudder a bit," he says. "There are times when minimalism can be the right thing. A table with one vase of flowers and one little accessory is thoughtful, while a gorgeous table with copies of Us and People magazines just looks neglectful."
In the dining room of Cynthia Frank's Southampton home the dining table came from a Sotheby’s auction, the antique chairs were purchased at Doyle New York, and the chandelier is a Paris flea-market find; the photograph is by Nathaniel Kramer, and the rug is by Stark.
