A console table or hall table is a versatile and useful piece of furniture for many areas of the home. Console tables are often used as dressing tables in the bedroom, or in halls as a useful area to put keys and other frequently used items. They can form the focal point of the room when a mirror is placed above. At Just Good Furniture we have a wide and varied range of console tables in many different styles ranging from french style decorative painted console tables to modern solid Ash half moon console tables.
Console Tables, Hall Tables or Sofa Tables
The console table was originally designed and handmade in France in the 18th century. The first design made in France was actually the half moon console table. Examples of this updated design can be found on the JGF website.
The console table (or hall table at it is often called) is an ideal piece of furniture for the lounge or hallway. It is usually a long, narrow piece of furniture and has a variety of uses.
They can be made from a variety of materials and woods. Oak console tables or Ash wood hall tables are a very popular purchase and both would be a versatile addition to your home.
Consoles and their uses
The console is traditionally designed to be placed against a wall. It often features drawers, a cupboard or additional open shelves to provide extra storage in which to place keys and smaller items. It is the ideal place to leave your house or car keys when entering the home. You can also tuck your shoes underneath them as a convenient place to leave them, close to the main door!
If wall space is available in the hallway, the homeowner may often hang a mirror
above the console, which will give an illusion of more space to an often small area of the home.
It is a practical item of furniture for many rooms and can also be used in bedrooms as a dressing table
, where a wall mirror or dressing mirror can be positioned above or on it to create an elegant look.
Using it as a desk may also be an option if the style of the piece allows.
Regardless of the room type in which it is placed; the console table is a perfect item on which to display ornaments, collections, photographs or to showcase a vase of flowers. It can also be used to hold the telephone in a central location in the home.
