Lighting is another thing that has totally evolved full circle in home decorating. Years back, the main source of lighting was candles and then a couple of lamps. From there, we were given the luxury of ceiling lights, hanging lights, pole lamps and chandeliers. For a while there, you couldn't walk into someone's living room without seeing many kinds of lighting fixtures. Today, some of the most elegant homes on the market contain only a few lighting fixtures. We're back to using candles (this time scented for appearance only) and simple lamps. Nothing looks more inviting and appealing in a room than console or sofa tables with a simple lamp and perhaps a book or magazine.
Besides the style you should also consider what type of storage you want, if any with your console table. Some offer one drawer, others offer two or three. Some have large cabinets perfect for stashing board games and jigsaw puzzles in the living room or holiday decorations for the table top above in the hall. Still others have a combination of drawers and cabinets making the storage options abundant. If you are in need of a place to simply add a decorative touch to your room choose a console table with just a table top or a table top and lower shelf for a bit of simple elegance .
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.
