Until I started delving into the world of interiors, I never would have given a second thought to owning or using a console table. Mostly because I’m an equal opportunity key dropper. Actually, since my keys are on a lanyard, they spend a lot of time hanging from doorknobs… when they aren’t still stuck in the door. (The door at my house has to be locked with the key from the inside after you’re in… but I digress.
I’ve seen some really cool examples of what can be done with entryway or even making an open floor plan more functional with this little bit of “throwaway” furniture. Below are some of my favorites from recent searches.
Simple, with an Asian flair and an old world vibe:
