Tips For Choosing Modern and Contemporary Console Tables and Sideboards. Contemporary console tables can be functional, decorative or a mixture of the two. Modern sideboards have the advantage of narrow designs, so they can be put in a hallway or foyer without cramping the space. Contemporary sideboards usually feature drawers and doors or shelves to hold linens, dishes, china or other decorations. In addition to the shelves, the table top makes a great display area for decorative items. It`s a great way to accentuate and personalize a room.
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.
Display Cases. Contemporary console tables usually are totally open or have glass doors. These can serve many purposes. Shelves can be great for china, photographs, books and travel souvenirs. Modern sideboards that have glass doors have the advantage of being dust free and easy to keep clean, though you`ll want to wipe down the glass every now and then. Some contemporary sideboards have no glass, which has the advantage of making the contents easy to view and access. Choose a display style that fits your decoration.
Modern Console Table - A Sleek Option For Your Living Room. If you have a small living space but want the feel of living large, it`s going to take some careful planning. The first thing you are going to have to select is your décor style. The best way to make the most of a small space is to choose modern or contemporary décor for the area. While this may seem to make no sense, as modern décor is supposed to be open and spacious, by using modern furniture to fill this space you will be able to reclaim a lot of the floor area of your home.
