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.
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.
If the table has a shelf, it’s also good to check the height and its weight bearing. This is so you know that everything you want to display will fit nicely in the space available.
Any size or style of console will do, from a glamorous metallic model to a rustic weathered-wood design. For this example, we chose a streamlined black-and-gold console inset with glass. One consideration: A lower shelf means double the styling potential, so consider how many pieces you want to display when choosing your table.
