Console tables are narrow in width and long in length, therefore can squeeze into just about any hallway, entry or small living room. This multi-purpose piece of furniture can also be called sofa tables, entry tables and hall tables. They serve as both a convenient drop spot and extra storage station. Some come with drawers and shelves for extra storage.
What is a console Table for?
The ideal placement for this piece of furniture is near your front door, since a foyer table makes a great drop spot for bags, keys, and accessories. Just add a basket for gloves and other items, a nearby coat hook or rack and a lamp to complete the look. A narrow console table also works well in living rooms, either butted up against the sofa or placed up against the wall. They are a form of a sofa table and do not take up a lot of space. These tables can even work as makeup vanities or small-space desks! They come in many different styles and materials, including wood, metal and glass.
