Console tables are clever display pieces and are particularly handy in narrow hallways and passages. They also look great when positioned against an otherwise bare wall. If needed, these tables can also be used as vanities in bedrooms or as room dividers when pushed against the back of a couch.
Choose an impressive material combination to welcome visitors in your hallway, such as a dark mango wood with gold finishes and trim. Built-in storage is also a handy feature to look out for - keys and wallets can be hidden away, leaving a large surface for vases, photos and curios. Whitewashed timber adds to serene and peaceful spaces such as guest bedrooms. Top with a tray of scented candles to create a romantic mood.
Console tables without storage make stunning plant shelves. Find a spot in the kitchen or living room to place these more minimalist pieces. Powder-coated metal legs provide an edgy, modern finish and the greenery from trailing plants will create a feeling of life and energy in a room.
Passageways are often overlooked as it’s hard to find furniture that fits along the walls without interfering with walking space. This often leaves the area feeling pretty bare. Slim console tables work perfectly here. American oak provides a fresh, light look and simplicity won’t hog the eye. Style console tables with leaning mirrors or canvas prints, and a statement table or desk lamp.
