Sometimes the one place you need a table the most you don’t have one. Whether that’s in the hall, the entryway or even the living room console tables will fill that space and provide much sought after storage or display space.
A wrought iron console table in the hall with marble top will lend this space some Mediterranean flair as well as a great space to display a favorite photo and a vase of fresh flowers. Try one in the living room where often times the only thing behind a sofa is a wall or empty space. A console table can fill that space with style and versatility. Some console tables come with wine racks that make them perfect for the dining room. Store glassware, dishes and linen in the side cabinets and a few of your favorite vintages in the center rack. Three drawers provide the perfect spot for a wine key and some coasters.
No matter what type of console table you are looking for you won’t find the best selection in your local furniture stores. Instead try shopping online and peruse the largest variety and most reasonable prices from the comfort of home. Choose from chest type tables, demilune tables perfect for hiding an unsightly radiator in an old house, as well as console tables that double as desks. You will easily find the table you’ve been dreaming of without setting foot outside.
Perhaps you want to add a touch of the tropics to your hall? Try a half-round or demilune mahogany table with a brass top wrapped in woven sea grass. Add some French flair to your living room with a black striped table reminiscent of bistros in Paris. If you are more traditional, try a classic looking console with long, gently curved legs and a single drawer perfect for stashing keys when you come in the door. Need more storage? Then try a console cabinet with gorgeous veneer inlays and delicate hand carved details. Store anything you want behind the two cabinet doors and display photos or a vase on the top.
With such a vast selection online you could quite possibly find a console table for every room. If you are not sure what kind of console table you are looking for you can narrow it down by shape, style or top material. Perhaps you want a rectangular console table with leather top and a modern twist? Or maybe you want a half-round table with a marble top for a classic touch? No matter what you want you will find it when you shop online and since you’ll be at home you can measure your space to find a table that perfectly fits your space and needs.
So, start shopping for console tables today. No matter what your style or your dcor, you’ll find tables that will make your decorating dreams come true. From cabinets to desks and simple styles to ornate designs, console tables are the most versatile way to add function and pizzazz to your home.
