A console table is a versatile piece of furniture. Its elongated proportions combined with its slender width and ample height allow the console table to fit snugly into even the most awkward narrow space. It is the perfect table to use in hard-to-furnish areas such as hallways, foyers, entrance ways and other problematic spaces.


As well as being proportionally elegant, console tables are also very useful and serve a functional purpose. A console table and chest combination works well if you need storage for a hall as well as that handy surface for keys and mail. Console tables are also a good place for showing off that precious piece like an objet d'art or a collection of treasures, because their traditionally simple design means they do not overshadow the importance of the display.


Before purchasing any console, make certain to measure the space where it is to be placed. If it is going behind a sofa or other piece of furniture, check the width of the space that will accommodate it. If a console is being purchased to be placed in a hallway or other narrow connecting space, check the width of the passageway to see what size table can be used that will not impede circulation in your home.
