If you`re not quite feeling contemporary console tables, don`t worry, there are a lot of other style options to choose from as well. That list consists of those that have a traditional feel, others that are more on the antique side, some that are more colonial in nature, and you can even get ones that combined different styles. To easily look into all the choices that you could possibly get for your home, the thing to do is to go online and do your comparison shopping there. It`s fast and you don`t even have to leave your home to do it. When it comes down to it, contemporary console tables are just a great way to improve the look of that hallway in your home.
Roll Desk Styles. Some contemporary console tables come with a roll desk style, a charming way to hide bills, mail and other paperwork during a dinner or cocktail party. Everybody needs an unloading zone, but it`s not like you want a landfill of papers sitting in your hallway. Contemporary sideboards with roll desk styles let you hide the mess elegantly.
Back in the 20s, the majority of the furniture on the market was wooden and heavy - dark woods. Pieces that had been carved and shaped into furniture works of art were commonly seen in homes. But then a movement started where less was more. The modernism movement replaced those heavy pieces of wood and thick padded and upholstered pieces with simple and sleek metal designs. Shiny polished metal, was the key to this type of furniture originally, with the whole idea being to replace all those heavy looking and heavy feeling pieces with light and airy furniture designs.
While many people only see console tables as pieces that would go in the living room, they can really be spread throughout the house to offer a number of storage opportunities. You could place one console table in the entryway, as a place to put away keys, the mail, or other small items you may regularly have as you walk in and out of the house. This would be a great place for a more ornate console table. It could have one drawer to put those little items out of the way, but the rest could be a beautiful piece of wrought iron or hand tooled wood that will put visitors in awe as soon as they step in the door.
