Ofelia Macaria Console Table December 04th, 2017 - 16:59:08
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.
Console tables have an enormous role to play in the contemporary interiors and each of them represents a subtle form of beauty and perfection. There is no doubt about the fact that the idea of using these tables ways back to the 17th century but the trend of the modern era has accepted them with open arms.
The real trick though may be finding where to put all that stuff. Instead of plopping things on a chair or putting more things on an existing coffee or accent able consider adding console tables to your home. Console tables bump up nicely against a wall to add additional display space and storage room without adding a cluttered appearance to the living area.
You may be thinking you could just get an end table or an accent table to do the trick but that is only if you have a little bit of stuff to put away. Console tables are quite a bit larger than accent tables or end tables so they will offer a lot more storage space and help you keep your home looking clean and organized despite all the things you know you have had to put away.
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.
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.
