Console Tables

One of the only places in my home that I am totally content with is my entryway console table. For some reason the stars aligned, and I wouldn’t change a thing to the set up or accessories. This doesn’t happen often, as I almost always change my mind about a space or have a plan for improvement. (If my husband were reading this, there would be an audible , “Amen”.) The first set of images is my home. Followed by that are foyers and console tables that I’m pretty fond of.

I’m a sucker for symmetry. I started with two lamps I loved and two of the centerpieces from our wedding. From there I just picked small items in my house that I wanted to showcase.

The mirrored table was purchased from Pier 1. The “pinwheel frame” was a Christmas project that became a permanent fixture post holidays. I had trouble finding something I liked better for the space.

Most of the images below, I feel, tend toward fashion rather than function. In truth, mine does too. Our back entry is where all the keys are thrown, bags dropped, and mail collects. I’m still on the hunt for pictures of tables that are equally functionally and still fashion forward.

So what do you think takes the rump card, function or fashion?

      Danielle and Elizabeth, I’m trying to branch out and arrange other areas in my home more “organically” and not so symmetrical. Not gonna lie, it doesn’t feel natural yet.

      Suzy and DNI, thanks so much for stopping by!

      Barry, thanks for the link up. I visited your shop and am forwarding your site on to some clients of mine who are looking for art.

      Well, you and your symmetrical self are just too talented and cute. That’s a mighty pretty entryway there, girl.

      BTW, I went to follow you and couldn’t find your box. I did after refresing, but I’m guessing this is not the only time this has happened.
      My brilliant programmer husband actually figured out a fix for it, if you want to check it out: http://www.fivedaysfiveways.com/2011/09/5-things-thursdays-how-to-fix-your-gfc.html.

      Hi Heather!

      I just found your blog through Danielle Oakey Interiors! I am in love with your mirrored table and clear lamps! Can you tell me where you got your lamps? I have been searching for some lamp bases like that!

      Thanks!!
      from your new follower!

      Thanks Melissa! So happy to have you. I snagged the lamps at TJ Maxx about a year ago. I was at Home Goods this summer, and they several glass bases. (Not sure if you have one in your town; I have to travel 3 hours to get to one.) Have you tried Overstock.com?

      Different types of living room tables, like coffee tables, sofa tables, end tables and console tables often prove themselves useful at parties by offering extra space for snacks or board games. Of course, not all console tables are equal. There are certain criteria you’ll need to consider before purchasing your new console table.
