You may not have known what they were called but inlays are designs made in the wood of the table. Generally inlays are made of other woods and/or metal inset into a table top surface.
Here is a home decorating tip: Interior Designers have used console tables in living rooms next to a flat wall to give interest and balance to the room. Topping off the table with a pair of small slender console lamps to provide an easy glow to a space without the glare and coarseness of light that comes from most overhead lighting sources. Hallways and entryways have also became popular locations for hall tables or console tables. First impressions for guest coming into your home is important, and a decorative console table topped with accent pieces of decor, small table lamp, and personal photos can be the added touch that makes people feel welcomed and comfortable. Placing these entryway furniture pieces in your foyer can be a beautiful addition to your home.
In order to get the most benefit from your console table, you need to choose one that's going to suite your. Finding one that meets your needs only take a few minutes when you shop online. With the power of the internet you can easily see all the different sizes, finishes, and styles within minutes.
The romantic air of a loveseat is unmistakable. The name says it all. It's a loveseat that tells me that it's meant to be a place for love. But how romantic can it really be if you have to get up every few minutes to get something to keep the mood going. This is why there was a fabulous invention called a console table.
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.
Besides the style you should also consider what type of storage you want, if any with your console table. Some offer one drawer, others offer two or three. Some have large cabinets perfect for stashing board games and jigsaw puzzles in the living room or holiday decorations for the table top above in the hall. Still others have a combination of drawers and cabinets making the storage options abundant. If you are in need of a place to simply add a decorative touch to your room choose a console table with just a table top or a table top and lower shelf for a bit of simple elegance .
Space. Another very important thing when it comes to shopping for console tables is the amount of space you have to work with. Make sure to measure the space before you go shopping. Often console tables must fit into a very tight space. You also don't want them to take up an entire walkway area, so smaller is usually better. However, if you have an unusually large entryway area, then a larger table will look better. Just be sure to measure because any table can look great in the store, but it may not fit when you get it home if you haven't take the proper measurements.
