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.
Glass alone or in combination with wrought iron is a very popular material. Of course, wrought iron may be used alone as well and is easily at home in an outdoor setting such as poolside or on a deck or porch. You might find contemporary console tables with mosaic tile lavished on their tops, creating a very distinctive finish with perhaps even the addition of a colorful handmade pattern.
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.
