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.
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.
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.
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.
