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.
Console tables tend to stand on four legs that are often slender but sometimes intricately carved. The legs support a table top made from any number of quality woods, including: oak; walnut; ash; maple; or even pine. In many cases, quality console tables and are made with a solid wood covered with veneered inlays. Common features on console tables are drawers and compartments for the storage of paperwork, spare bedding, and similar items.
Console tables in your foyer do not need to be strictly decorative additions to the space. When you step in the front door, the console table is a logical place to drop your keys, the mail, and whatever else is in your hands. If you find one with drawers or a storage base, you can tuck away the children's gloves or the dog's leash. When it's outfitted with a mirror, it's a perfect place to take a glance at your hair or makeup before you walk out the door.
