When you hear the words “Console Table”, the first thing that comes to most people’s mind is entryway. When I see a beautiful console table the first thing that comes to my mind is what room can I use this piece in. Thinking outside of the box will give you more options for your console table. Let’s take a look at three different room options for three different console tables. The first will be a contemporary black console table with gold accents.


The first console table example can be used for an entryway or living room. The console is styled with gold accent pieces. The candle sticks and vases are the same height to give balance. The round black mirror, trimmed in gold, completes this contemporary look. The second example is for a dining room. Mixing the elegance of the wall art and tableware with contemporary sconces takes this console table to a new level.


Our next option will be a long modern, mauvy pink console table with gold accents.

The first console example is purposed for a dining room. This console table can be used for storing dinner ware. The accent pieces used to create this look are candle sticks, a vase and a center piece. By adding the tall accent pieces on either end, it balances out this piece. Because this console table is very long, a center piece was added for to fill the space in between. The beautiful modern art work with soft hues of mauve, grey and gold adds a little drama to the whole look. The second example is for the bedroom. This console table can be used for storage of linens, blankets and pillows for a guestroom. The accent pieces for this look include a lamp, a center piece group of vases and books that your guess may enjoy. The three groups were staggered in this look to create a cascading affect. Two modern mirrors trimmed in gold completes this sophisticated modern look. 


For our third option of the console tables, we’re going to go silver and mirrored glam.

The first console table example can be used in either an entryway or living room. If you’re going for a glamorous, streamlined look then this is it. By adding a single lamp on one end and small grouping of books and blue accent balls on the other end really lets the beauty of the mirrored affect show through. A beautifully trimmed mirror adds a little elegance. Adding two blue ottomans not only pulls this look together but it also adds extra seating. The second console example is for a very glam girly bedroom. Accents, accents, accents are the key to this look. Add a pink fur bench, crystal lamp and a lighted mirror and now you have a makeup vanity.
