Go for a Stylish and Contemporary Console Table Design for the Hallway, Bedroom, or Living Areas
More than just a console table, the Apta Collection's Ebe console by Antonio Citterio comes in a selection of small-scale tables with a double top. The frame comes in bronze, polished chrome, or nickel. Get creative by placing this table next to a sofa, a bed or in a hallway to add an extra surface for your decor (or your car keys).
Constructed out of Walnut or Curly Maple wood, the Xie console table by Hellman-Chang brings out the sharpness of crisp lines and a graceful profile in its old-world style. With lean legs supporting a classic oriental top and a concealed drawer for storage, it is both stylized and fully functional.
In your choice of ipe or polyboard, the Luma console table by Modern Outdoor can be placed on your patio or inside of your home for a lightweight furniture addition. Instead of one size fits all, you can also have your pick between a 5' and 7' long table to work into the decor of your choice.
Finished with a glossy coat of sterling silver, the 178-770 Console by CTH Sherrill Occasional has a slender rectangular form with a thin glass top to show off its best with an elegant, contract approach.
Unlike most tables, the curved legs of the Zen Curved console table give it the memorable name that exudes serenity and intrigue. With a Dark Walnut or Light Teawood finish, this Oak plywood chair matches just about any modern interior.
With a sleek base available in polished or satin stainless steel, acid washed gray and opaque, the L.A. table by Louis A. Lara & Al Glass for Brueton comes in a high or configuration and in multiple sizes beside its console version. The top consists of 1/2" glass inset on long sides with exposed ends in clear, sandblasted or laminated glass.
A bright, mirrored finish equips the Vive console table by the popular Zuo Modern with a vibrant appearance that jazzes up any living or dining room, bedroom or hallway with its reflective appearance.
