Console Tables - Perfect For Giving Personality to Your Foyer. When is the last time you really thought about your foyer? Chances are, if you are like most people, the entryway, or foyer, is a part of the house that you gloss over. You bring people in, take their coats and shuffle them right past this area of your home. Why is it that the part of your home that is the first impression people get of your home is one that you ignore. If you are like a lot of people the reason is not that you just don`t appreciate the foyer, you simply don`t know what to do with it.
Especially useful in a hallway, dining room, family room or den, contemporary console tables not only look good but can be an extra place for storage as well. And who ever has enough storage? Those featuring drawers are perfect for hiding your extra remote controls, coasters, or magazines or are a handy place to put picture albums you want to have available for easy access when friends and family drop by.
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.
As you undertake the purchase of console tables to help with your storage problems, you need to make a note of what you need before you buy. How much storage do you really need console tables to provide? Do you have minor to moderate storage needs? You may want to look at tables that are more ornate but only have a little storage area, like one long drawer. But if you realize you have a lot of things you need to find a place to put away, you should look for more practical console tables with more drawers or shelving options you can use to get control of your clutter.
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.
