Lindsay. Console Tables. June 13th , 2018.
Another great area for console tables is the den or family room. Console tables with two or three large drawers are a perfect place to store all those board games that the family will gather to play on game night. When you need to get control of your stuff, console tables are going to be the friend you have been looking for.
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.
In the living room, a modern sofa is going to be cut more crisp and sleek than other sofas. When you take out all those extra fluffy pillows, cushions and claw feet from the equation, you get more space. Every inch saved on the sofa space is another inch of floor for you. Modern tables aren`t going to have cabriole legs sticking out, or any other pieces that make them take up more space than they need to. They will be sleek, well thought out pieces of furniture.
In addition to those materials and finishes, contemporary console tables can also be made from a slew of others finished in many different ways as well. Some of the other options include woods like maple, cedar, and alder along with metals like wrought iron and regular iron while other finishing options are a simple lacquer applied to the wood or hand painted colors and those for the metal might be hand rubbed or polished.
Console Tables - Ideal For Cleaning Up Clutter. In today`s home there never seems to be enough space to put stuff. If you think about it, it`s amazing how much more square footage today`s homes have, yet we seem to still be able to fill all that space up as soon as we get it. We are collectors by nature and it seems many believe that the more stuff they have the better they are going in the game of life.
