We have gotten away from rooms in our homes that no one goes in – remember as a kid when your mother practically roped off the living room and reserved it only for the company? Rooms need to be multi-functional and have pieces that reflect the needs of your family.
One of the hardest working pieces of furniture today is the console table. Stop at Hickory Furniture Mart to shop the discount living room furniture and you will quickly find out why. The console plays a role in home offices, dining rooms, living areas, halls and anyplace else it can find.
This long narrow table is an asset for many reasons. It fills a void behind a sofa to provide an extra surface for lighting or accessories. Designers hate walking into a room to see the back of the sofa, and a console table adds an extra dimension.
The console becomes a great workspace that a chair can be pulled up to. Suddenly a living area can become multi-functioning as a study when you use the console to pay bills at, work at a laptop or read a book at.
There are flip top console tables available at the North Carolina Furniture Outlets that are extraordinary for entertaining. Simply swing out the extra gate leg for support, flip the hinged top over, and suddenly you have a small dining table or serving area. The shape may be a half moon that becomes round or rectangular that spreads out further. When pulled out the top should be about 30” tall in order to accommodate dining chairs if necessary.
Tuck benches under a console table that can be easily pulled out for extra seating in your living spaces. Taller entry console tables accommodate umbrella stands underneath, places to set shoes, and a surface that catches it all – keys, phones, the mail, etc. This table can serve as a docking station in a back hall where you charge the phones and other personal electronic equipment.
Whatever your need, there is bound to be a console table that is up to the task. Ask one of the interior designers in the North Carolina Furniture Showrooms to help you find the one to assist with all your needs.
