Sherry J. Oswalt Oswalt. Console Tables. December 03rd , 2017.
To start with though, contemporary console tables will have one pretty basic design with simple lines, giving the furnishing a very sleek appearance. Sometimes there will be small design elements like softer lines or curves, but that is just every now and again. The different materials and finishes that come into play are what really put the look of contemporary console tables over the top. For example, you can get one that is made using both glass and metal with a base crafted from steel that has a chrome finish supporting a slightly black tinted table top. Or, you could purchase one that is crafted from pine that has a rich, black finish with a slight semi-glass appearance.
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.
Ask a designer. The hardest areas to decorate in a home are small ones. You don`t want to overdo the space and it`s hard to find furniture to fit that small environment, so you just ignore it. Not anymore. We`re going to give you a few tips to appreciate this less-loved area of the home. First, think of the uses of the foyer. Since it is the room closest to the front door, it is a natural place to have some type of furniture to set down things as you come in to the house. This is why you should consider console tables for this area.
Back in the 20s, the majority of the furniture on the market was wooden and heavy - dark woods. Pieces that had been carved and shaped into furniture works of art were commonly seen in homes. But then a movement started where less was more. The modernism movement replaced those heavy pieces of wood and thick padded and upholstered pieces with simple and sleek metal designs. Shiny polished metal, was the key to this type of furniture originally, with the whole idea being to replace all those heavy looking and heavy feeling pieces with light and airy furniture designs.
Contemporary Console Tables - Withstanding the Test of Time. One great thing about modern or contemporary console tables is that they never go out of style. When you think about how finicky the style and fashion world can be these days, this is a pretty impressive statement. Even though some of same contemporary console tables you see in stores today were created in the 20s, when the movement of modern furniture began, they`re still the height of fashion.
