How to Choose Console Tables

Which and Why?

Firstly do you need a console table in your hallyway?

If you need storage, somewhere to put your keys, a lamp or a phone by your front door then yes.

Secondly, what size?

As with all pieces of furniture your home defines your furniture. What size is your hallyway is the obvious question, however a big hallway does not allways need a big console table and a small hallway does not always need a small console. A bright small hallway can take a large console without it being overbearing.

Thirdly, what style and colour?

We have an extensive range of sizes as well as styles and colours. If your house is Georgian, an elegant White console table would be perfect, some victorian homes are deeper in colour and will work perfectly with our grey tones of the Bridgeport or Charleston or if you have a Scandi or retro vibe in your home then the Henley is ideal.

What ever your home if you have a hallway we believe you need a console table, both for the design aspect but also and equally as important for the functionality, the drawers alow you to hide away the days post or keep your bits and bobs while it can be dressed with an over wall mirror, lamps and accessories to lighten and stylise your hallway.
