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.
Address shape and scale to the console table. Visual interest can be created with contrasting shapes. If you have a lot of square or rectangle objects such a books, trays and boxes, place an object either on top or next to them that’s round or cylindrical for contrast. Also introduce objects that vary in height to bring visual weight to the vignette and help to create balance. Remember to keep it simple – don’t over-clutter. Allow white space for the eye to rest.
Do you ever feel that your room is missing something? It’s probably a be console table! A console table is a great piece of furniture for creating an attractive display area. With a console table, you can transform a previously unused or awkward spot into the stylish focal point of your space.
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.
