When console tables first became popular, it was not uncommon to attach them directly to the wall; it was a shelf, but with table legs in the front. These tables were traditionally paired with a mirror and sconces. Now they come in enough different materials and styles to satisfy any design preferences.
Whether you are designing with a theme in mind or just starting to re-decorate a room it has never been easier to find the perfect console table for your décor. First you need to decide where you are going to put it. Do you need a table in the foyer to welcome guests with an oversized bouquet of fresh garden flowers? Do you need a table in the hall to hold linens as well as display a favorite photo from your trip to Paris? Maybe you want to cover up an old radiator in a bedroom without taking up too much space. Or perhaps you would like one to double as a buffet in the dining room as well as hold table linens and grandma's good silverware. Once you decide why you need or want a console table you can search for one that meets these needs as well as complements your existing décor. Choose a half moon or demilune table to cover up a radiator or add some curves to an angular room or hall. Some come with one or more drawers and some include a lower shelf. Try a rectangular one in the dining room or one full of drawers in the hall.
Perhaps you want to add a little Asian allure in your living room with a detailed, black, chest type console table in a classic Chinese design. Make a statement with the Mediterranean flair of a large aged ivory chest type console table with black marble top. Or keep it clean, simple and modern with a black metal table with glass shelves. Any console table you choose will give you the opportunity to display a few favorite photos; a vase of fresh blooms or perhaps a bit of your favorite collections of bits and baubles in old apothecary jars.
