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.
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.
Place one in a hall or entryway under a mirror and show off some of your favorite things in style. Many even co me with drawers and lower shelves providing more storage and display space. Try one with a cabinet behind your sofa to store a few favorite board games and jigsaw puzzles ready for family game night.
Looking for a table in a store also allows you to get a better feel for the craftsmanship of the piece, so always remember to examine the table in person. It's never a good idea to purchase a table without seeing it and examining it closely.
Another thing to keep in mind when it comes to style is the fact that some tables are extremely trendy for a short period of time, while others have a very classic look that will stay in style for years to come. Just remember that console tables, especially those in the entryway of your home, are often the first piece of furniture visitors will notice. This means it is much better to purchase a classic-looking table rather than a trendy one that will be out of style in a year or two.
First, just by their size and appearance, contemporary console tables will make your room very lively. It's a little bit like the story of the Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Contemporary console tables are a major step up from simple end tables and accent tables that many people put in a room. Those tables are nice enough for their job, but really don't pack a punch when it comes to the styling of contemporary console tables. Likewise, contemporary console tables are not quite the massive monsters that a dining room table is. They're somewhere in the middle. Many would call them the 'just right' table for a room as they are in a class all their own, and stand out for that reason.
When decorating your home, you shouldn't overlook the importance of a console table. When used correctly, a console table will provide a stylish and function piece of furniture that will add new life to your home.
