The console table can even set the mood. Imagine walking that special someone into the room and seeing a bottle of wine (in a single bottle wine chiller if you're worried about it getting too warm), a vase of roses and box of chocolates in place. Also on the table, two glasses for the wine, and a remote control, set to play the romantic movie you have at the ready in the DVD player.
Material. As mentioned already, wood gets high marks for durability, although style may cause you to opt for a metal or glass table. Also metal tables with tiles of glass or other material are becoming very popular and show no sign of going away any time soon. The type of material you choose does certainly say a lot about what kind of style you are looking for. Wood tables tend to be very classic in style, while metal tables are usually a bit more contemporary.
Once you are in the right snuggling posture on the loveseat, getting up to refresh a drink, snack, or anything else is nothing but a mood spoiler. But if you were to have a console table set right behind you would have the capability of having all those things you need nearby, without getting up.
Usually tall and narrow sofa or console tables are the perfect way to spruce up a boring entry way. Instead of welcoming guests with a blank wall try a delicate table laden with a favorite photo and candles as well as a vase of fresh garden blooms. Or fill that empty space behind the sofa with an elegant piece perfect for resting a beverage or a book. From ornately carved solid wood pieces to scrolling metal works of art with clean, clear glass resting on top there are many options in console table style to suit your needs.
When investigating this type of occasional table, be sure to check all your measurements to be sure they fit. Console tables are designed by furniture manufactures to blend well into today's homes. If you have an older home with a touch smaller square footage footprint than the open designed great rooms that are popular with builders. Consider a smaller table for your home that is scaled appropriately. A good rule of thumb is to go with a console table that measures 30 inches long up to 48 inches long. In remembering this rule, your room should accommodate the new piece of furniture with ease.
Wouldn't it be grand if all accent furniture was as wonderfully versatile as a console table? You can place them behind a sofa, against a wall or even cover up an old radiator with a demilune or half circle one.
