Console tables can live just about anywhere in your home… make a statement in an entryway, anchor a large piece of art, be used as an inconspicuous desk, or can easily be tucked along a spacious hall. Similarly to benches, these slender tables are super versatile! I’m sharing six groupings of console tables of every style and price. Mark my words… this will be one of the first pieces I buy for our new home.
I can totally envision option one or two from the above roundup styled into my entryway. I have a thing for texture and all of the global and eclectic options nail that particular aesthetic! Burl, grasscloth, mosaic wood tiles, or a sculptural drawer… I’d take any of them. Couldn’t you just see a piece of artwork hanging above one of these tables, flanked by sconces?
Lately, I’ve noticed myself steering more in the direction of classic and traditional furniture. I’m not certain if it’s because I’m getting older and growing into a more mature style, but I’d like to incorporate more of these timeless heirloom pieces into my next home. Think quality, heavy furniture, fine oil paintings, mixed with modern fixtures… that might be where I’m headed. Who can resist a good campaign table? Exactly! No one.
If you’re going to go glam, brass is the way to do it! I’m thinking one these tables belong in the office or home of a successful girl boss. Right?! I’m really attracted to the shape of number one, two, AND four. For those of you with a similar mindset (who like mixing finishes and texture), number four has a marble top.
You guys already know I’m attracted to masculine decor. I have no idea why, but clean lines and industrious materials sing to me. Maybe I’m liking the above set so much because it has a minimal, fuss-free vibe? Either way, these are definitely on my radar for my next project.
Unlike the glam options, these subtle, chic, and sophisticated tables are really cool. Maybe that’s the word I should’ve used to describe this set? They’re hip, without trying to be too trendy, and could easily be styled with any aesthetic.
Last but not least, for you functional folks… I give you storage and space saving consoles! To be realistic, it looks like the odds are in favor for one of the above options to end up in my new home. With downsizing comes creative space planning. I hate clutter and having lack of an entryway would make a console with a drawer SO much easier to hide everyday objects- keys, mail, dog leashes, etc.
And here comes the tough question- which grouping do you prefer or gravitate toward? Does one table stand out? Help me out and cast your vote! I need to pull the trigger on new furniture soon.
