Console tables are often found placed against walls, and in some cases are attached to the wall, making them more secure. These small tables are sometimes used for display and decorative purposes, providing a secure surface on which to stand a lamp, or perhaps some flowers. With such versatility, and a wide selection of shapes, styles and sizes, you are sure to find a one that suits your home, at a price you can afford.
One of the most common places to find a console table is inside lobby’s and hallway’s, where they not only prove to be functional, but can provide a focal point, or point of interest. Positioned in a hallway, they provide the perfect place to keep your keys, or place the mail or newspapers that come through the door. You will often find a one of these tables with a mirror placed above it, this is especially true of those found in hallways, providing a perfect opportunity to check your appearance before leaving your home.
Choosing The Right Table.
There are very few rules regarding the design of the table, they can be round, rectangular or square, some have two legs, and so therefore must be secured to the wall, whilst others are free standing, with all four legs, affording you the ability to move it to various positions when needed, some can even be used as sofa tables. In general these tables are thin and slender, so as not to obtrude too far from the wall, making them perfect for lobby’s and hallways.
If you are looking for a useful, all-round table, a table can often be a wise choice, with no set style rules, you can easily find the correct size, color and design to suit any room. From the classical polished wood, antique style, through to the modern glass and chrome styled console tables, with such a wide choice, you are sure to find something to suit your tastes.
Is A Sofa Table A Console Table
Console tables are so diverse, and available in such a wide selection of designs, sizes, colors and shapes, that it can sometimes be difficult to define the difference between a console table and a sofa table. For those of you who are unsure exactly what they are, the definition is really rather vague, they are defined as small tables, often narrow in shape, supported by either two, or four legs, leaving the decision of whether the table you are looking at is a sofa table, or a console table.
