A console table is a stylish and useful addition to all sorts of spaces around the home. As it’s slim, a console table can fit into a hallway or living room without over-filling valuable floor space. In a living room, you can set one against the wall, fit it behind a sofa, or use it to divide two zones of an open-plan area. Our extensive range of console tables includes designs that will double as desks or dressing tables with lines sufficiently compact to allow them to be positioned where other pieces of furniture won’t go. Although console tables are neatly proportioned when it comes to their depth, they’re generally wide enough to create a good surface area for display or to be used for work, or another task. However, we also offer a smaller version in our Portland single drawer table, so you can add one of these practical tables to even a compact room. Our range of console tables includes classic, modern, and industrial style designs so you can pick one that complements the remaining furniture in your room.
Why pick a wooden console table?
We offer a wooden console table as part of our extensive range. It’s made using oak, which we’ve picked for its natural beauty, lovely grain pattern, and durability. You have two options when it comes to the finish of our wooden console table. For organic beauty and a mid-toned colour, opt for our natural oak top. If you want a richer finish, we can treat the oak of your console table with Danish oil. This will make the colour of the timber deeper in tone without compromising the attractiveness of the wood grain. Danish oil will give the wood extra protection against any spills that might occur, too. It can be re-applied periodically to keep the wood in premium condition. We’ve teamed the timber of our wooden console table with a metal frame to give the furniture an industrial twist. The clean lines of the design make it suitable for any room scheme with a modern twist as well as interiors influenced by loft apartment style.
Decide whether you need a storage console table
Our console table range includes versions with storage, and more minimal designs that provide a tabletop only. If you need a console table with storage, you can pick from designs with drawers, designs with a lower shelf and those that feature both. If your table is for display only, or a place to position a table lamp, a design with only a tabletop is the natural choice. These types of console table have the most barely-there effect, keeping the room as open and airy as possible. If you need to be able to tidy away items, opt for a design with drawers that will conceal clutter. These can be a handy choice for the hallway, as door keys and loose change can be tidied away inside when family members come home, leaving the top free for decorative items. A console table with an open shelf introduces extra display space. If you have items that would look messy left out on one of these, you can always use baskets to tidy these pieces. Want to maximise storage? A drawer plus shelf combination is the winning one for you.
Console table styles
There’s a console table design for every room scheme among our range. You can select from console tables with elegantly curvaceous legs, classic decorative turned legs, or designs with cleaner lines to complement your other furniture choices. The full range of our paint finishes is also on offer when you shop for a console table so you can make your piece a colourful addition to a room scheme or a quieter presence that leaves all of the focus on what you display on the top of the table. There’s even the option to paint the table yourself if there’s a paint colour you’ve already fallen for. For designs with drawers, take a look at our full range of knobs and handles to pick the style and material that gives your room the classic or contemporary note, plus the level of decorative detail, you’re after.
