Updated Classics: The Entryway Console Table
Discover fresh alternatives to popular design trends in our online series, Updated Classics.
Classic Pick: A leggy console table in the foyer, all the better to wrangle keys, mail and phones. But this hardworking piece also has a pretty side: art and tabletop décor offer an introduction to a home’s aesthetic.
Fresh Spin: A mod floating console has the same functionality as a table, but its sleek silhouette and lack of legs feels fresh. Plus, it’s a clever small space trick. Floating furniture keeps sightlines clear, which helps crowded rooms feel more spacious, and even creates the illusion of a foyer where there isn’t one.
