Coasters on top, remotes underneath.
ETA: I forgot we have 2. The other one has coasters on top and photo albums underneath.

We have 2. Upstairs is a wedding frame we have that displays an engagement, wedding and honeymoon picture. Also sometimes some candles. Underneath it I have a ton of photo albums and catalogs.
The one downstairs is supposed to be clear but random papers, remotes and folded laundry always ends up on it.
My coffee table always has too much stuff on it. Right now it has kleenex, nail polish, a Martha Stewart cookbook, coupons, pen, paper, and a couple coasters. Underneath it are coasters, our wedding album in the box, a decorative bowl, and an Ikea catalog.
Like I said, too much.
WAY too much. When it's clean, remotes & a candle on top, photo albums & books underneath.
Now, remotes, a dirty glass, books, mail, wii remotes & a dvd are all on top.

Now my dining room table is another story. That is where all the clutter accumulates.
On the dining room table right now:
Newspaper sale ads, a topsy turvy, an ipod dock, a cintronella candle from the patio, sun screen, a picture frame, and a pail with sand toys.

Don't even get me started on our coffee table. I think I will be doing some cleaning when I get home from work.
I have a small round coffee table. I just have an hour glass on it. Here's a pic: (please excuse the cheap shades. We've put up plantation shutters since)
I have: remote, coasters, pens, random pieces of mail, lotion, tweezers, small mirror (for eyebrow tweezing), and foot cream. It's possible I've left things out.
On top: Nothing
Underneath: DH's large sailing book, Scrabble and a dictionary, remotes, and a stack of J. Peterman catalogs (yes, the company from Seinfeld is real, and the clothing descriptions are as hilarious as on the show... we will never buy anything from there because it's so expensive, but the catalogs are fun).
Front room: two pretty Fenton candy bowls and two coffee table books, one on painted lady houses and one on Frank Lloyd Wright's buildings.
Family room: Lamp, framed ultrasound photo, remotes, coasters. And probably a bottle and a pacifier.
Any books that I am currently reading. Other than that nothing because the baby just destroys whatever else I put there.
We do keep three wicker baskets underneath that hold magazines, and some toys.
Ugh. Remotes (currently 4!), a candle, a tabletop thermometer, a placemat (because we always eat in the living room). A "bedroom caddy" meant for wallets, keys, change, etc...at the end of the day, but DH has a terrible habit of dumping that stuff in the living room, so I moved it out here. We move it if we have company.
Also, there is a cup there right now.
Right now? I haven't started cleaning yet today, so there is...
Clean Laundry, waiting to be hung up.
A candle centerpiece (3 pillar candles corralled by a holder)
Our coffee table books - one about penguins, one about mustangs (the car), two about aviation, and my anniversary gift to DH (a picture book of our first year of marriage).
The big packet of stuff we got when SD "graduated" pre-K. I still haven't figured out where to keep it. Probably going in her closet.
Underneath, there is...
A stack of gardening magazines/books my SM gave me.
A building book (that we used when we built the barn last March).
My latest knitting project.
