mmhu. Console Tables. July 14th , 2018.
A tiered look is also very modern and although similar to shelves, the tiers usually overlap the legs. Legs and tiers are then made of unusual material combinations, such as glass and aluminum or wicker and wrought iron. The tiers may also be held on with obviously over-large bolts or placed on legs of curled wrought iron or ornamental aluminum.
Back in the 20s, the majority of the furniture on the market was wooden and heavy - dark woods. Pieces that had been carved and shaped into furniture works of art were commonly seen in homes. But then a movement started where less was more. The modernism movement replaced those heavy pieces of wood and thick padded and upholstered pieces with simple and sleek metal designs. Shiny polished metal, was the key to this type of furniture originally, with the whole idea being to replace all those heavy looking and heavy feeling pieces with light and airy furniture designs.
The days when the foyer was just a room to leave your umbrella, shoes or coat before you make your way into the rest of your home are over. Now you can turn the foyer into a real entryway into your home, a place that sets the scene and lets everyone get a taste of what you have in store for them.
While many people only see console tables as pieces that would go in the living room, they can really be spread throughout the house to offer a number of storage opportunities. You could place one console table in the entryway, as a place to put away keys, the mail, or other small items you may regularly have as you walk in and out of the house. This would be a great place for a more ornate console table. It could have one drawer to put those little items out of the way, but the rest could be a beautiful piece of wrought iron or hand tooled wood that will put visitors in awe as soon as they step in the door.
Glass alone or in combination with wrought iron is a very popular material. Of course, wrought iron may be used alone as well and is easily at home in an outdoor setting such as poolside or on a deck or porch. You might find contemporary console tables with mosaic tile lavished on their tops, creating a very distinctive finish with perhaps even the addition of a colorful handmade pattern.
