Lindsay. Console Tables. May 28th , 2018.
If you ultimately select one of today`s contemporary console tables having shelves, they`ll be useful for displaying ornamental items such as flowers, figurines or books or maybe even a radio or small TV. Hanging a mirror, painting or picture above one can give a room a breath of fresh air and a whole new look. Still generally created in the ever-popular rectangular shape, contemporary console tables get a considerable amount of their uniqueness from the materials used to build them. Almost every type of material used in today`s furniture making can be found in a console table. There are wicker ones for casual settings and wooden ones featuring granite or other contemporary tops for more formal settings or where added protection is needed for the table`s top.
Back in the 20s, the majority of the furniture on the market was wooden and heavy - dark woods. Pieces that had been carved and shaped into furniture works of art were commonly seen in homes. But then a movement started where less was more. The modernism movement replaced those heavy pieces of wood and thick padded and upholstered pieces with simple and sleek metal designs. Shiny polished metal, was the key to this type of furniture originally, with the whole idea being to replace all those heavy looking and heavy feeling pieces with light and airy furniture designs.
Who would have thought that almost a century later, contemporary console tables would still be considered as part of the must-haves in furniture fashion and trends. One reason contemporary console tables are so beloved is their simplicity. Contemporary console tables are an easy way to dress up or dress down a room and offer more space as needed for various purposes, whether it be to offer more room for drinks while entertaining, or to hold a lamp while you curl up with a good book. Additionally contemporary console tables are a great way to show off some of your collectibles. Many people today have a dual purpose for their homes. One as a place to live, and two as a museum of sorts for showing off their life. Contemporary console tables can help in this venture by offering display space to show off some of your life`s most interesting collection pieces. Since contemporary console tables are simple in design, they will not take away from that special item you place on them. Through all these uses, contemporary console tables will also not take away from the rest of the décor you have created for the room. Instead they will blend in to whatever environment they are placed in. They are the chameleons of furniture.
Console Tables - Perfect For Giving Personality to Your Foyer. When is the last time you really thought about your foyer? Chances are, if you are like most people, the entryway, or foyer, is a part of the house that you gloss over. You bring people in, take their coats and shuffle them right past this area of your home. Why is it that the part of your home that is the first impression people get of your home is one that you ignore. If you are like a lot of people the reason is not that you just don`t appreciate the foyer, you simply don`t know what to do with it.
The real trick, though, may be finding where to put all that stuff. Instead of plopping things on a chair or putting more things on an existing coffee or accent able consider adding console tables to your home. Console tables bump up nicely against a wall to add additional display space and storage room without adding a cluttered appearance to the living area.
