Sherry J. Oswalt Oswalt. Console Tables. December 03rd , 2017.
In the living room, a modern sofa is going to be cut more crisp and sleek than other sofas. When you take out all those extra fluffy pillows, cushions and claw feet from the equation, you get more space. Every inch saved on the sofa space is another inch of floor for you. Modern tables aren`t going to have cabriole legs sticking out, or any other pieces that make them take up more space than they need to. They will be sleek, well thought out pieces of furniture.
Perhaps one of the best reasons to have console tables in your living room is to clean up quick for unexpected company. Imagine you get five minutes warning that someone is coming over. You want the place to look nice, but this is the family living room and there are books, magazines, remotes and other small items all over the place. These items can be quickly tucked away in the console tables, hidden from the view of your guests, who will think you keep a spotless home, and later brought back out for everyone to use.
You may be asking yourself why not just use any old table to fill the void? After all, you can put whatever you want on a tabletop, right? Well, this is true, but console tables have many more uses in the foyer. Many console tables have drawers or shelves below the tabletop. These are places to keep things you need. If you go out at night a lot, you may want to have a flashlight in that drawer. If you have a lot of kids coming and going, the shelves could be a great place to put their sports bag or even their books, so they don`t forget first thing in the morning.
A tiered look is also very modern and although similar to shelves, the tiers usually overlap the legs. Legs and tiers are then made of unusual material combinations, such as glass and aluminum or wicker and wrought iron. The tiers may also be held on with obviously over-large bolts or placed on legs of curled wrought iron or ornamental aluminum.
You may be thinking you could just get an end table or an accent table to do the trick, but that is only if you have a little bit of stuff to put away. Console tables are quite a bit larger than accent tables or end tables, so they will offer a lot more storage space and help you keep your home looking clean and organized, despite all the things you know you have had to put away.
