A console table always makes a huge style statement. It adds elegance to your living room. Tall and narrow in design, console tables can be both decorative and functional. A stylish console table at your home’s entrance, for example, is a great addition to the entryway decor. Another popular use is as a sofa table, placed behind a couch or sofa that is not backed against a wall. A console table with extra storage options can serve as a home office desk or even a home bar. A unit with small shelves can work well as a decorative occasional table. In smaller rooms, a console table can make an excellent sideboard. In larger rooms, you can use it as a divider to partition the space into two or more smaller spaces. So, whether it is a sturdy English country style, a carved, elegant French vintage style or a contemporary one in chrome and glass, there is one that will suit every home.
