Sherry J. Oswalt Oswalt. Console Tables. December 09th , 2017.
Glass alone or in combination with wrought iron is a very popular material. Of course, wrought iron may be used alone as well and is easily at home in an outdoor setting such as poolside or on a deck or porch. You might find contemporary console tables with mosaic tile lavished on their tops, creating a very distinctive finish with perhaps even the addition of a colorful handmade pattern.
The obvious pieces of furniture you are going to likely get for the living room are a sofa, possibly a loveseat and other chairs and seating options for your guests. Then you will likely get a coffee table, and many people also want matching end tables. But this is where you may want to put on the brakes. While end tables are nice, if you are going to do a lot of entertaining in this room, you should probably think of furniture pieces that will help you do that. Sure, end tables will give you a place to put a drink or two, but console tables can offer a lot more. In addition to adding countertop space, console tables can also offer a lot of storage space to put things you will need to have close at hand when you are entertaining, such as coasters for those drinks that are about to be set down.
Display Cases. Contemporary console tables usually are totally open or have glass doors. These can serve many purposes. Shelves can be great for china, photographs, books and travel souvenirs. Modern sideboards that have glass doors have the advantage of being dust free and easy to keep clean, though you`ll want to wipe down the glass every now and then. Some contemporary sideboards have no glass, which has the advantage of making the contents easy to view and access. Choose a display style that fits your decoration.
The other benefit of console tables is they have a little more personality than regular tables do in the foyer. Because of the shelves, drawers and possible tray or other decorative tops, a console table in the foyer can really set the stage for the rest of your house. No matter the style, you can find console tables to match your décor. If you have a Victorian theme, you can have a Victorian console table with a simple vase of flowers on top to give people a hint of what the rest of the house will hold. Have an old country style home? There`s a console table that will match that theme as well and let visitors know what they will be walking into as they make their way through your house.
Lamps and other modern furniture accents are few and compact. They are going to be functional pieces that do their job, and take up a minimal amount of space while doing it. That, after all, is the goal of modern furniture, to fill the void that exists (the need for a piece of furniture) and that`s it. No pomp. No circumstance. The joy a piece of modern furniture gets is just being functional. Once piece of furniture you should invest in is a modern console table. A modern console table is not only a table, but offers a 2-for-1 deal when it comes to using the space in your living room. Instead of just offering a tabletop surface, a modern console table will likely have a drawer and/or shelves below that will hold books, and other things that may clutter up other portions of the room.
