Console Style

No piece of furniture is better suited for the entry than the console table. Designed to be narrow enough to fit in a skinny space like a foyer, yet wide enough to be practical for setting down keys and a phone, the console table is the perfect perch for those little things you hold in your hand as you exit or enter throughout the day.

A console table isn’t just for practicality, it’s also the first impression in an entry. You’re free to choose anything to hang above, from hooks to photographs to abstract art, and a mirror is always a no fail partnership.

Console tables are that first introduction to the style and personality in your home. Cottage versions are often painted in bright hues or whitewashed to reveal the beauty of the wood underneath.

A warm metallic like gold leaf or brass will guarantee a dose of elegance in the entry.

Acrylic and Lucite surfaces have risen in popularity in the last ten years, and are appealing when used in contrast with traditional architectural elements.

Industrial style continues to be a desirable design choice, especially when partnered with rustic, weathered, or worn wood.

Old World or European inspired console tables constructed of iron in combination with marble or wood showcase filigree and decorative metal in their bases.

An antique console table is one of several ways to style an entry and possesses unique and vintage appeal.

  2. All gorgeous examples Kate! Love the last one with a full length mirror!

  3. Love all of these looks! I’ve been wanting more pops of color in my entry way and living area, but I ended up replacing what I had with a rustic style chest with a blue stone top and a mercury glass lamp and a mirror. Not much color in those. After viewing these, I think I need to move the mercury glass lamp to the bedroom on another chest and purchase one or more new lamps with a pop of color. Or should I paint the rustic wood chest? Hmmmm…decisions, decisions!

  4. Adding…I do realize this post is about consoles…and I am in the market for a very skinny console too. Hoping I can find a skinny one similar to one of the lucite or the gold/brass ones above. Love them all!

  5. Thanks for including the Brent Console – love that piece!!!

  6. These are amazing–definitely make me want to spice some of my furniture!
