What is a console table, exactly? Shape provides a clue here. These tables are typically rectangles, but it can have a semicircle or half-oval top. It's longer than an accent table or an end table, narrower than a sideboard or kitchen counter, and taller than a kitchen table. You'd never look at a console table and think, "Will we be eating dinner here?"
If you've noticed, regardless of what furnishings I've mentioned, I keep coming back to console tables. This is because they've been around forever and will always be around as an important part of your home décor. Console or sofa tables can be used next to your sofa or chair as a place to keep your newspaper or TV guide so it's always handy. If you have an empty corner in your home, nothing fills it better than a console table with a candle, picture, flower, statue or other simple decorative item.
Perhaps the best and most popular uses of console tables are in entryways and as accent pieces in a living room. For example, when you come through the door of your home, you are generally carrying something that needs to be set down in a convenient location. This may be your briefcase, groceries, or just a set of keys that need to be placed in a spot where they won't get lost. The idea also holds true for many other items, ranging from homework to purses. For this reason, the console table may be one of the most highly utilized pieces of furniture in your collection. And if you're going to use it every day, you want it to be attractive. Fortunately, these tables come in so many styles and materials that it is easy to ensure they complement other pieces in the room. In a smaller room or entryway, you might want to match the material from which your table is constructed with nearby window sills or doors in the space where it resides, although different styles can be paired in a room, depending on paint colors and flooring.
