Characteristically both stylish and functional, consoles are an adaptable piece of furniture that can make a significant statement in your home. Whether a landing space in the entryway or a bar in the dining room, consoles can be moved around to create places of interest. Display for fresh flowers, objet d’art or even a special bowl for your essentials, a console will always draw attention. Add a console beneath a mirror or a painting for an impactful grounding effect or let it stand alone as a modern statement piece.
In smaller spaces, consoles with depth can work double duty as a small writing desk or a place to store a petite bench below for extra seating. Whether accenting or coordinating with your existing décor, consoles should be carefully selected to fit with your home’s existing aesthetic. From raw concrete to high gloss white, these carefully curated consoles will get you thinking about your next dramatic statement piece.
