The question I get asked more than any other is about console tables. People love them but have a hard time deciding which style to choose. Personally, because console tables usually stand alone, I think they present an opportunity to stray away from your normal design style. For example, if your style tends to be more traditional, you can make your space more eclectic by incorporating a modern console.
I also think that it is best to choose a style that is more streamlined and simple, rather than ornate. That way you can experiment with color and how you style your table. For instance, the mirror below works well because the console table is simple. It would be too overwhelming for the eye with a really ornate table and mirror.
Console tables are perfect to fill a large wall space, in an entryway, or even behind a sofa.
Here are some of my favorites including one for every budget!
Console tables are easy to find at antique stores and thrift stores and can be made over so easily! Stay tuned as I plan to reveal a DIY project on this topic!
