Taller than a side table and narrower than a dining table, console tables decorate living rooms, hallways and passageways with sobriety and discretion. It was thought as a supporting surface for small personal objects like keys and sunglasses. It evolved to become an extremely functional element equipped with drawers, storage and shelves. It is usually matched with a wall mirror and it is perfect as a hallway piece of furniture, specially in narrow spaces. It can also be used as a modern vanity table in the bedroom if matched with a stool. In the living room, if put behind the sofa, the console table becomes a functional and aesthetical partition dividing living and dining rooms. It can be a supporting surface for lamps, vases, candleholders or your books. In the garden, the console table decorates your outdoor relaxing area becoming a snack table by the pool or it can hold your plants.
