Sometimes you just need something a little extra to complete a room. Something that will fill that unused corner of the living room, accent the area behind your new leather sectional, or grace the empty wall in your entry. Why not consider an iron console table.
A console table, by definition, is a table supported by decorative consoles or sculptured legs that is fixed to a wall or designed to be set against a wall. Console tables are versatile pieces of home furnishing that are available in different shapes and styles and have many uses. They are often referred to as side tables and from them many other variations such as sofa table, entry table, hall table and sideboard table have developed.
An iron console table can be used in just about any room of the house but as each is designed with a specific purpose in mind it is important to get a table that will fit your needs. The right type of console table can add a lot to a room in the way of beauty, function and character.
Living Room - When you think of an iron table for the living room what probably comes to mind first is a wrought iron coffee table. But a variation of the console table often used in living rooms is the sofa table. A sofa table is normally a long, thin, tall occasional table placed against the back of a sofa. As a sofa table, the console table is generally topped with lighting, greenery, candles, or a few tall accessories to add height to an area, showcase small artifacts and statuettes or to create a visual division between spaces.
Entry Way - Many people use a console table in their entryway, not only to add style and interest, but also for functional purposes. When a console table is used in this way it is often referred to as an Entry Table. An iron console table in the entry is perfect for setting down mail, keys, a handbag, and other small items as you walk through the door. It can also be used to place things near the door that you want to take along with you, so you won't forget them. Many people also place a mirror above a console table to check their appearance as they leave and to allow guests the opportunity to check theirs as they arrive.
Hall Way - A console table may be used as an accent table to hold a small lamp in areas that need additional lighting, such as hallways. As with entryways many people use console tables in a hallway for decoration as well as function. An iron console table in a demilune, or half-oval shape, is ideal for a hallway. As with entry tables a hall table is is a great place to hang a beautiful mirror, artwork or perhaps a piece of metal wall art over.
Bedroom - A console table with mirror is a common staple in the bedroom. But a console table can also make a perfect built-in vanity or small desk. And when used creatively an iron console table can also work as an entertainment center or a coffee bar.
Dining Room -
Aside from the many uses mentioned above, an iron console table can also be used in the dining room as a sideboard or serving table. A sideboard is a table placed against the wall that is designed to store dishes, glass, silverware, and table linens. It is okay to confuse sideboards with buffets and credenzas as their use has a very similar intent.
Another favorite for the dining room is the console table that also houses a wine rack.
Covered Porch -
An iron console table can also be useful on an enclosed porch and can act as a serving station for coffee and other beverages.
