A console table can fit into either big or small sitting room, because of its long length and narrow width. Console tables are often also referred to as hall tables, entry tables, and contemporary sofa tables, this multi-purpose piece of furniture serves as both an extra storage station and convenient drop spot. Whether you prefer a traditional white console table or a dramatic mirrored console table, there are several options to choose from to accommodate all styles. Here's what you should consider before you buy a console table:
A console table is usually placed near your front door since a foyer table makes ideal as a drop spot for accessories, keys, and bags. Just add a lamp, basket for trinkets, and a nearby coat hook to complete the look. A narrow console table also fits well in living rooms, either butted up against the sofa or placed on the wall. They can even work as small-space desks or makeup vanities!
A sofa table is a form of a console table, though its placement is what makes it unique. This narrow, long table goes directly behind your sofa, so it doesn't take up much space yet can still be used for additional decor and storage. It can either substitute or complement for your current furniture. Depending on your preferred design, they come in many different materials and styles, including glass, metal and wood.
