Console table as TV Stand. Console tables are naturally narrow, enabling them to take up far less floor space than a traditional TV stand or media center. Look for a sturdy console table that will hold the weight of your TV and make sure it is wide enough to accommodate the cable box, DVD player, or stereo. Tip: Since most console tables do not have as much storage as media centers, storage boxes are perfect for keeping DVDs and CDs close by but out of sight.
One of the great features of a console table is that they’re not restricted to one room. If you’ve got an empty space in your home, chances are a console table would fill it nicely!
When choosing a table finish material, it’s a good idea to consider what flooring you have in your space. For example, if you have tiled or wooden flooring, a chrome, glass or mirrored, finished console table would be ideal for adding a crisp and modern look to the space.
Until the reign of Louis XVI. consoletables were almost invariably gilded, but they then began to be painted usually in gris-perle, and by degrees they came to be manufactured in rose-wood and mahogany. Although much used in England the console has never been thoroughly acclimatized there; that it has always retained a foreign flavour is indicated by the fact that, unlike most other pieces of furniture, it has failed to commend itself to any but the richer classes.
