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.
While many people only see console tables as pieces that would go in the living room, they can really be spread throughout the house to offer a number of storage opportunities. You could place one console table in the entryway, as a place to put away keys, the mail, or other small items you may regularly have as you walk in and out of the house. This would be a great place for a more ornate console table. It could have one drawer to put those little items out of the way, but the rest could be a beautiful piece of wrought iron or hand tooled wood that will put visitors in awe as soon as they step in the door.
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.
Tips For Choosing Modern and Contemporary Console Tables and Sideboards. Contemporary console tables can be functional, decorative or a mixture of the two. Modern sideboards have the advantage of narrow designs, so they can be put in a hallway or foyer without cramping the space. Contemporary sideboards usually feature drawers and doors or shelves to hold linens, dishes, china or other decorations. In addition to the shelves, the table top makes a great display area for decorative items. It`s a great way to accentuate and personalize a room.
