Console tables are often to be found nestling in the corner of living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms or hallways. Generally serving as a convenient table to put the car keys or telephone on, or a surface for displaying photographs and decorative items, console tables don’t always receive the same attention and appreciation as other furniture pieces. Despite this fact, they are often the most numerous and important items in the home.
As well as being a great place to store everyday essentials, consoles are space shapers. Due to their discrete size they can be tucked into a disused corner of a room and add some real form and character to previously overlooked space. For this very reason, consoles can be particularly effective in entrance halls. Despite the fact that it is often the first thing that we see when we enter the building, the entrance hall can sometimes feel like a cold and forgotten area of the home. A new console table can rectify this problem, contributing towards that special warm, homely feeling from the very moment that you walk through the front door.
We have a varied selection of consoles on offer, with different drawer, shelf and table styles and set-ups. With such an array of options it is important to think carefully about what kind of functionality and aesthetics you might want from the table. The variations in size between items means that you have the option of small consoles, which can be used solely for the display of decorative items, through to larger consoles that feature spacious drawers or double up as a discrete desk. Due to its small size and subtle positioning in a room, a new console table can be the perfect piece if you are thinking about updating your decor and want to begin blending your current furniture pieces with a more modern look. For example, you could choose the Villa wall mounted console, which combines the old and new with its traditional wood finish and modern wall mounting technology. Otherwise, there are our dual material consoles which combine glass and/ or metal, with different types of wood. Use a new console table as a starting point from which to plan the evolution of your décor!
