Sherry J. Oswalt Oswalt. Console Tables. December 01st , 2017.
While many people only see console tables as pieces that would go in the living room, they can really be spread throughout the house to offer a number of storage opportunities. You could place one console table in the entryway, as a place to put away keys, the mail, or other small items you may regularly have as you walk in and out of the house. This would be a great place for a more ornate console table. It could have one drawer to put those little items out of the way, but the rest could be a beautiful piece of wrought iron or hand tooled wood that will put visitors in awe as soon as they step in the door.
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.
Contemporary console tables have been created in so many sizes and shapes they can fit any space you need to put them into. If you just need a small table to show off a collectible in your home, that is not a problem for contemporary tables. You will be able to find a table that may almost seem like a pedestal display that came right out of a museum. Additionally if you are a little cramped for space, but would like to add a little more display area to a room, you can probably find an unused corner. Contemporary tables will be able to fit right into this little bit of available space and offer you the surface area you were looking for without taking away from the precious usable square footage you had left in the room.
The real trick, though, may be finding where to put all that stuff. Instead of plopping things on a chair or putting more things on an existing coffee or accent able consider adding console tables to your home. Console tables bump up nicely against a wall to add additional display space and storage room without adding a cluttered appearance to the living area.
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.
