You could use a console table as streamlined dressing table by simply placing a mirror in the centre. It could also be used as a desk which is ideal in a bedroom as its slim shape means it won’t take up lots of your room. Place desk tides and organizers on and around the console to create handy storage spaces, just bear in mind that a console will be higher than your average desk.
The shape and size of the majority of console tables mean that they are designed to be posited against a wall. This style of table is generally thinner in width and therefore benefits from having the support of the wall to lean, prop and style items against it.
The word is, however, more familiar in its connexion with furniture. The console-table was originally so called because the slab was supported upon a scroll-shaped bracket, or upon legs which in form and contour answered roughly to the idea of a bracket. A console-table has a front and two sides; the back, which remains unornamented, always stands against the wall. Since this piece of furniture was first introduced in the 17th century it has undergone many mutations of form. It has been flat and oblong, oval and bombe; but, save during the Empire period, it has rarely been severe.
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.
