The beauty of a console table lies in its versatility and its ability to conform its function in any given space. Some of my favorite console tables that we have in our home are from Living Spaces.
One such table is the Reclaimed Natural Hand Carved Console Table, which contains detailing that makes it unique and why it works in our space. The contrast between a clean and modern stained staircase and a more traditionally-styled console table is what I love most. I picked up the warm undertones of the table through a caramel leather pouf and brought in texture with a mirror and dried floral arrangement.
In a similar space, slight changes make a big difference. I like the juxtaposition of more modern acrylic picture frames with the traditional feel of the console table, as well as the added texture of poufs and again, a dried floral arrangement. The open aspect of a traditional console table is also great for storing extra seating.
Another intricate piece from Living Spaces is the Black Hand Carved Console Table. This item is different in that it has more clean lines and is a better match in our master bedroom. It’s a great piece because it is not very deep and therefore does not have a large footprint, and it adds light texture to what could be read as a harsh piece. I put a few baskets underneath to hide cords from electronics.
Another reason we chose this for our master is because of the contrast in color and texture with our Dean Sand bed. The space was lacking a feeling of weight and intrigue, and the console offered up both.
