Console Tables. Wednesday , June 13th , 2018 - 06:26:56 AM
Perhaps one of the best reasons to have console tables in your living room is to clean up quick for unexpected company. Imagine you get five minutes warning that someone is coming over. You want the place to look nice, but this is the family living room and there are books, magazines, remotes and other small items all over the place. These items can be quickly tucked away in the console tables, hidden from the view of your guests, who will think you keep a spotless home, and later brought back out for everyone to use.
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.
To start with though, contemporary console tables will have one pretty basic design with simple lines, giving the furnishing a very sleek appearance. Sometimes there will be small design elements like softer lines or curves, but that is just every now and again. The different materials and finishes that come into play are what really put the look of contemporary console tables over the top. For example, you can get one that is made using both glass and metal with a base crafted from steel that has a chrome finish supporting a slightly black tinted table top. Or, you could purchase one that is crafted from pine that has a rich, black finish with a slight semi-glass appearance.
