For a Modern Apartment

Industrial style has become a timeless trend of modern homes.

marble top console tables

For Contemporary Style

Stylish and versatile, marble top console tables are another trend that we just can't seem to get enough of. Year on year, real marble and marble effect is chosen by designers, not just for console tables, but side tables, kitchen worktops and bathroom tiles too. This timeless trend sees white marble paired with gold for a classic combination of glamorous elegance while deeper shades of marble such as black and brown instil a room with a luxe feel reminiscent of boutique hotel style.

Statement console tables

For a Unique Feature

While some console tables blend into your interior, others are designed to stand out. Statement console tables draw attention, becoming unique feature pieces of a room. They can be used to add style to unloved and unnoticed spaces such as under the stairs or behind the living room sofa. Go all out statement with dramatic circles inspired by this year's Curve Appeal trend or take a subtler approach with unique, handcrafted details and unusual forms.

For Eye-catching Design

Like statement console tables, crossed leg console tables are designed to catch the eye, becoming feature pieces of a room. Plus, they come in a range of styles, ensuring that there's an x-leg console table to suit your interior style. This includes wooden x-leg console tables for a rustic home as well as vibrant metal x-frames in polished shades of silver and gold.

shagreen console table

For a Look of Luxury

As we detailed in Our Guide to All Things Shagreen, shagreen is synonymous with luxury interior design. So if you're looking to bring an essence of luxury to your home, a shagreen console table is the perfect starting piece - particularly for an entrance hall to set the mood of the rest of your home. This finish replicates the appearance of reptile or stingray skin, creating a tactile and sophisticated look. For furniture, it is used in varying degrees with some consoles simply using a faux shagreen wrap around table tops, while others are draped in shagreen from head to toe, often matched with inlaid gold and brushed brass details to enhance the luxurious feel.

Gold console tables

For Modern Decadence

Gold console tables are the epitome of grandeur. And in line with this year's Limitless Luxe trend, incorporating hints of gold into your furniture and decor has never been more fitting. Create drama with an eye-catching all-gold design. Or take a subtler approach with glass and mirrored top console tables with touches of gold in the framework or woven within the detail of the handles for a touch of glamour.

Stunning Console Table Designs For Every Home

From designer console tables with luxurious finishes to stylish console tables for modern and contemporary homes, there are stunning console table designs for every space. Unlike tables designed for certain rooms such as coffee tables and bedsides, consoles can be used in just about any room of the home, though they are particularly suited to narrow spaces such as hallways thanks to their wide surfaces and slim frames. Select a console table to suit your requirements and style with a mirror or artwork to draw attention to a particular space or setting.
