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.
A gorgeous sculptural stool can be placed underneath a console to create balance and interest. It’s also a great place to put on and take off your shoes and means you have an extra seat should you ever require it for guests when entertaining. Another great option is a pair of matching upholstered ottomans to create symmetry and add some colour and softness.
A console table is the perfect piece of furniture to transform a dead-space into an area that makes and grand statement! Due to its narrow, elongated proportions, a console is perfect for an entryway or hallway. It’s a piece that is not only functional but can also be dressed to set the tone for a space while also creating a sense of arrival that says ‘Welcome Home’!
Console Table in Entryway. A console table in the entryway provides a strong focal point and first impression for guests entering your home. The best decorated console tables mix style and function. A mirror, lamp and family photos (above) provide the perfect spot to welcome guests. If you do not have a coat closet, think about a coat rack or hooks to gather guests belongings. A small bowl can hold keys and cell phones. Tip: Space in the entryway is often limited. Tuck a pair of patterned ottomans under your console table and give guests a place to sit and slip on their shoes.
