Compact Console Tables for Living Room Furniture

When you imagine a well- laid out living room, along with comfy and elegant sofa sets and sectionals you need to picture end tables also – all kinds of end tables like sofa end table, coffee table, side table and console table. The coffee table may be the star of the show – sitting in the center of the room and being the focus; but the other tables are also equally useful and equally important.

Console tables are long, narrow and a little taller than other tables. Console tables are essentially functional furniture – serving as display tables, or flat surfaces where you can keep quite a lot of stuff handy. Console tables are essential in the living room, in the dining area and in the foyer area as well. They are useful but stay out of way – always against the wall so every room can be better with one console table.

Many a time, console tables are themselves ornamental adding to the beauty of the corner where they are accommodated. They have crafted details like scroll work if they are made of metal; carving details if they are made of wood. They can be shaped more artistically than any other end-tables and create a focus area of attention by their beauty and distinct looks.

Console tables can be free-standing or wall supported. Free standing tables are naturally full tables with four legs and stable without any wall support. They can be made of wood or metal and with work details in the legs or full frame itself. They may have a lower shelf where you can keep books etc and sometimes, have small drawers to keep keys etc.

If the console tables are wall supported, they may have the front two legs and have the back portion supported at the wall. Some tables may have a single pedestal-like base and some may have three legs – one at the front and three at the back. Console tops can be oval or rectangular. Sometimes they are quadrants of circles – a segment – looking very pretty.

Here you can see some images of pretty looking console tables from Chelini – an Italian furniture designer firm who create really beautiful and exquisite furniture. These console tables have very beautiful details like scroll work, carved legs and other details. Hope you will like to have some console tables like these at your home?

You can choose the coffee table to be nearly the same height or just a little lower than the sofa seat for conveniently keeping the cup-saucer or glasses etc. If you are going to keep the coffee table as central table, it should be about two-thirds of the length of your sofa set to give a harmoniously blended look with the other sofa and accent chairs.
