Glass alone or in combination with wrought iron is a very popular material. Of course, wrought iron may be used alone as well and is easily at home in an outdoor setting such as poolside or on a deck or porch. You might find contemporary console tables with mosaic tile lavished on their tops, creating a very distinctive finish with perhaps even the addition of a colorful handmade pattern.
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.
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.
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.
You may be asking yourself why not just use any old table to fill the void? After all, you can put whatever you want on a tabletop, right? Well, this is true, but console tables have many more uses in the foyer. Many console tables have drawers or shelves below the tabletop. These are places to keep things you need. If you go out at night a lot, you may want to have a flashlight in that drawer. If you have a lot of kids coming and going, the shelves could be a great place to put their sports bag or even their books, so they don`t forget first thing in the morning.
