Speaking of material console tables come in some of the most varied choices of any type of table. The majority of course are wood: oak maple walnut and cherry are popular although the material can be stained or distressed to change the look of the piece. Glass tabletops mixed with wood bases are an attractive way to add dimension and variety to the design and are also helpful for intermingling styles within a room. Glass is also uniquely suited to reflecting candlelight or enhancing the sparkle of your glassware.
Console Tables are generally placed against the wall and are versatile. Placing a Console table near the sofa will help occupants to reach out easily.
When decorating a home there is always a balance to be reached while choosing the right furniture. You want something that suits the style you are trying to create in your home but you also need to make sure it is a functional piece of furniture that will fulfill any needs you may have in your home.
A console table is a bit of a riddle. It can be a hall table or a side table but is generally not an end table. It can be a sofa table or a coffee table or accent table but not a dining room table. And never ever is it a mathematical table! To solve the mystery of this extremely versatile item a general guideline for a console table is that it is usually a rectangular piece of furniture that ranges from 2 to 4 feet in length and stands about waist high. Some console tables may be half-moon shaped or round but the most commonly recognized shape is a long rectangle.
There are very few rules regarding the design of the table they can be round rectangular or square some have two legs and so therefore must be secured to the wall whilst others are free standing with all four legs affording you the ability to move it to various positions when needed some can even be used as sofa tables. In general these tables are thin and slender so as not to obtrude too far from the wall making them perfect for lobby's and hallways.
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.
