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.
Lamps and other modern furniture accents are few and compact. They are going to be functional pieces that do their job, and take up a minimal amount of space while doing it. That, after all, is the goal of modern furniture, to fill the void that exists (the need for a piece of furniture) and that`s it. No pomp. No circumstance. The joy a piece of modern furniture gets is just being functional. Once piece of furniture you should invest in is a modern console table. A modern console table is not only a table, but offers a 2-for-1 deal when it comes to using the space in your living room. Instead of just offering a tabletop surface, a modern console table will likely have a drawer and/or shelves below that will hold books, and other things that may clutter up other portions of the room.
Tips For Choosing Modern and Contemporary Console Tables and Sideboards. Contemporary console tables can be functional, decorative or a mixture of the two. Modern sideboards have the advantage of narrow designs, so they can be put in a hallway or foyer without cramping the space. Contemporary sideboards usually feature drawers and doors or shelves to hold linens, dishes, china or other decorations. In addition to the shelves, the table top makes a great display area for decorative items. It`s a great way to accentuate and personalize a room.
A modern console table is perfect for an apartment or a condo where space of all kinds, from storage space to square footage is at a premium. An added bonus is the drawer in the modern console table is a good, out of the way, place for all those things that used to clutter up the tabletop. You may not have realized it, but reducing the clutter in a room can also make it look more spacious. Even if that clutter is on tables or other surface spaces, the more things are cluttered in a house, the more crowded the space feels.
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.
