With the right decoration item, a room like your living room can feel really finished, regardless of whether that item is on a coffee table, console, open shelf, or any other vacant space that could be filled. Lately I’ve gotten interested in chain link style sculptural pieces that look gorgeous whether they’re on display on their own or topping a stack of books with coffee tables.

Chain links are often more expensive than most accent pieces because of their weight and material composition (think marble, metal, and wood versus plastic), adding texture and visual interest to a room in seconds. They are the perfect detail for a mantelpiece and can also be used in tableaus on different surfaces. Even better, since they’re fairly flexible between the links, you can often remodel them into different configurations: stretched and long, coiled and compact, or even twisted into a serpentine shape. Regardless of your decorating style, one of these eight chain link objects will appeal to you and is the perfect end to your living room.

Beverly Wicker chain link object

Wicker isn’t going anywhere, and if you love this natural texture as much as I do, this chain link is for you. Set it on a white marble table for contrast or combine it with rattan furniture to make the boho theme go down well in your living room.

Cottrell hand carved chain 5 link sculpture

This piece of wood from Wayfair is perfect for rooms with a transitional style and spices up your coffee table in seconds. Notice that the piece is quite large at 27 inches wide by its full length. However, you can easily curl it up a bit if you style it on a smaller surface.
