A console fits nicely behind the back of a sofa, which great for an area where the sofa backs onto a walkway rather than a wall. This helps to define the space and prevent the sofa from looking lost or floating in mid-space.
A console is also the perfect solution for filling empty nooks and spaces. For example, in front of a staircase wall. A console table can be used as a serving bar for entertaining. It makes a great bar cart for displaying and serving drinks or laying out food dishes.
If your home is modern avoid heavily ornate pieces and opt for something with clean lines. If your home is more classic, a combination of brass or bronze base with glass top could work well. Selecting something in a light neutral colour will work best in a smaller, darker spaces.
Turn a console table into a bedroom vanity by hanging a mirror above it and tucking a stool or chic chair underneath. Do not forget a light source, like a delicate table lamp, to finish this pretty spot for primping. Stash make-up and jewelry in small boxes on the tabletop since most consoles do not have drawers.Tip: Perfume bottles and jewelry can make for beautiful decor too. Keep them easily accessible and highlight their beauty on a pretty tray.
