Who would have thought that almost a century later, contemporary console tables would still be considered as part of the must-haves in furniture fashion and trends. One reason contemporary console tables are so beloved is their simplicity. Contemporary console tables are an easy way to dress up or dress down a room and offer more space as needed for various purposes, whether it be to offer more room for drinks while entertaining, or to hold a lamp while you curl up with a good book. Additionally contemporary console tables are a great way to show off some of your collectibles. Many people today have a dual purpose for their homes. One as a place to live, and two as a museum of sorts for showing off their life. Contemporary console tables can help in this venture by offering display space to show off some of your life`s most interesting collection pieces. Since contemporary console tables are simple in design, they will not take away from that special item you place on them. Through all these uses, contemporary console tables will also not take away from the rest of the décor you have created for the room. Instead they will blend in to whatever environment they are placed in. They are the chameleons of furniture.
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.
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 addition to those materials and finishes, contemporary console tables can also be made from a slew of others finished in many different ways as well. Some of the other options include woods like maple, cedar, and alder along with metals like wrought iron and regular iron while other finishing options are a simple lacquer applied to the wood or hand painted colors and those for the metal might be hand rubbed or polished.
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.
