Sherry J. Oswalt Oswalt. Console Tables. December 07th , 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.
Bamboo, aluminum and black lacquered wood and curvaceous shapes or added curlicues of aluminum or wrought iron are just some of the ways by which this old stand-by has come of age. Once you have one in your home, you`ll readily see why they`ve been so accepted and well-loved for lo these many years. They are ready to come home with you and add tons of style, while performing an important storage task, contemporary console tables will add a new dimension to your home`s décor. You`ll wonder how you ever got along without one!
If you ultimately select one of today`s contemporary console tables having shelves, they`ll be useful for displaying ornamental items such as flowers, figurines or books or maybe even a radio or small TV. Hanging a mirror, painting or picture above one can give a room a breath of fresh air and a whole new look. Still generally created in the ever-popular rectangular shape, contemporary console tables get a considerable amount of their uniqueness from the materials used to build them. Almost every type of material used in today`s furniture making can be found in a console table. There are wicker ones for casual settings and wooden ones featuring granite or other contemporary tops for more formal settings or where added protection is needed for the table`s top.
Roll Desk Styles. Some contemporary console tables come with a roll desk style, a charming way to hide bills, mail and other paperwork during a dinner or cocktail party. Everybody needs an unloading zone, but it`s not like you want a landfill of papers sitting in your hallway. Contemporary sideboards with roll desk styles let you hide the mess elegantly.
Another benefit of console tables is when you have your friends with kids visiting. The drawers in the console tables offer a good place to have a few games and toys tucked away so the little ones try to play with those items, instead of any of the valuables you may have on display in the room. Some console tables even have tops that are already game boards, of games like checkers, chess or backgammon, so the kids can pull the playing pieces out of the drawer and the game can immediately get underway.
