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.
If your console is sitting up against a wall in an entry way, you may wish to hang an artwork on a mirror above it. An artwork can make a grand opening statement for your home and is a great way to introduce colour and reflect your personality. A mirror opens up an area to create a sense of space, it will also help to reflect light and create a brighter feel, while providing a place to check your hair before you rush out the door. Tip: When selecting an artwork or mirror just be sure that the size works well with the scale and colour of the wall, the console and the other objects you are adding to the console.
Styling is easy once you know, but there are some important things to address to ensure you create a vignette that looks amazing but also works from a practical stand point. The first step is to consider the function of your console table and its location, then evaluate your needs and style accordingly.
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’!
