A console table has an advantage over a sideboard, buffet or credenza as it occupies less space and its open base design makes it appear visually lighter. Most models are commonly rectangular, however there are some that a referred to as Half Moon or Demilune which is like an elongated semi-circle or an oval cut in half.
A console can be flanked with an item each side of it such a set of beautiful matching occasional chairs (it’s a great way to store additional seating) or add a couple of tall plants either side in a funky pot such a Fiddle Leaf.
Chrome finishes are also great alongside coloured or patterned carpets and rugs as they will beautifully reflect the colours. Gloss fits into a range of interiors but would add a lovely smooth look when placed on a coloured carpet or coordinated tiling.
The best height for your console table depends on where you plan to put it, as they are available in different heights, styles and materials. Often used behind sofas for perched lamps and decorative accessories, a console table is also useful as a drop-off spot in the entryway or as a buffet in the dining room. Before you buy one, verify that the table is an appropriate height for the space and the people who plan to use it.
