Step Up Your Decor Display with Modern Console Tables
Contemporary consoles. Modern console tables create storage and decor space with a minimal floor footprint. Also known as hall or sofa tables, they're long and narrow—ideal along the entryway or hallway wall. In the foyer, decorate one with a catchall for keys, a tray for mail and a decorative vase. Then, put a rug beneath to keep shoes out of the way. In tight entryways, opt for an acrylic table—you get all the benefits of storage without any visual clutter. Displaying your sofa table in the living room? Position one behind the sectional to house a table lamp for illumination while curling up with a book. Another spot: against the wall. With a sculpture and an assortment of candles on its surface, the modern console table looks even better with a wall mirror above it. Employ extra shelf space for small potted plants or reed diffusers.
