You never realize just how essential and versatile a console table—also known as a sofa table or entryway table—is until you add one to your home decor. Its names may sound specific to the purpose, but one of these tables works in your entryway, yes, but also hallways, bedrooms, living rooms—even in your office as a space-saving desk.
Consoles work best when leveled against another element in your home, either a wall, bed or couch. They make a great place to display decorative items, stash your keys or even act as stylish and secretive extra storage space.
