Especially useful in a hallway, dining room, family room or den, contemporary console tables not only look good but can be an extra place for storage as well. And who ever has enough storage? Those featuring drawers are perfect for hiding your extra remote controls, coasters, or magazines or are a handy place to put picture albums you want to have available for easy access when friends and family drop by.
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.
The obvious pieces of furniture you are going to likely get for the living room are a sofa, possibly a loveseat and other chairs and seating options for your guests. Then you will likely get a coffee table, and many people also want matching end tables. But this is where you may want to put on the brakes. While end tables are nice, if you are going to do a lot of entertaining in this room, you should probably think of furniture pieces that will help you do that. Sure, end tables will give you a place to put a drink or two, but console tables can offer a lot more. In addition to adding countertop space, console tables can also offer a lot of storage space to put things you will need to have close at hand when you are entertaining, such as coasters for those drinks that are about to be set down.
The days when the foyer was just a room to leave your umbrella, shoes or coat before you make your way into the rest of your home are over. Now you can turn the foyer into a real entryway into your home, a place that sets the scene and lets everyone get a taste of what you have in store for them.
