6 console tables that make an entrance
First impressions mean everything. Or so they say. Well, we say it too, and it’s true of your hallway – the first part of your home that anyone sees. The forgotten entryway, often overlooked as we rush off to work in the morning, and fall across the threshold in the evening, dumping our coats and bags.
There are some simple things you can do to make sure this spot welcomes rather wards off, however, and investing in a cracking console table is one of them. Let us show you our favourites.
Greet your guests with a bang. The Aravali is a knockout. Designed by Tom Goodbun, deep green marble makes a striking contrast with the brass-effect frame. Delivering Deco luxe with a pop of colour, it’s great for a hallway in need of a bit of zest.
Oh so chic
The Pascal is a popular choice for those who crave style with plenty of practicality (and don’t we all?). Its spacious drawers are a definite pull – a place to store those hard-to-find knick-knacks that always disappear right when you need them and are rushing out of the door. Minimal design, offset by simple but beautiful materials mean its versatile and will suit many tastes, too. Winner.
Trying to steer clear of clutter? Or just working with a petite portal? The Hackett is so sleek you barely know it’s there, and then iron frame gives a subtle nod to industrial style without being OTT. Top with a potted plant to give your gangway an understated lift.
Fit for the gods
The Cassius is a bit of a celebrity. It has an element of drama about it with a boxy black frame, while its marble top makes it an Instagrammer’s dream. The best shots we’ve seen usually include fresh blooms and some cool books. But we’ll let you decide.
Get into the grove
Compact design complete with storage space, the Cosgrove is a crowd pleaser. Great for small spaces that belong to big hoarders. You can use the drawers to hide your mess and style it up with metallic accessories to contrast with its natural wood.
A delicate statement
A Swoon HQ favourite; the Valmont proves that delicate designs can pack a punch. Whether you go for the textured brass or matte black finish, this console table is great for space saving but still makes a statement. Plus, you get two of them. Any more reasons needed? Didn’t think so.
