I love that this is a space in your home or office that you can display your favorite books, accessories and personal mementos in a stylish way.

I love that this setup is classic and simple and anything but basic. The artwork is a simple classic sketch and these vases are tall and sleek to add wonderful height to the space. I love this glass bowl, too. There’s no need to fill it, either. It’s a gorgeous vessel all on its own.

This is maybe my favorite console table in this post – and it comes in more than one size. If you love this profile, it comes in a small and narrow version which is perfect for small spaces or entrances, this size and a much larger version that is a perfect media console. This table is timeless, features clean lines and can be styled an infinite number of ways in an infinite number of spaces.

I love how light and airy a glass console table can be. The brass makes it feel a bit vintage, too. This is a great example of adding colour, shape and dimension into your design. It’s an eclectic mix of items and is a ton of fun.

This table is a great design element in a space all on its own. I love the warmth of the wood and how the other materials such as glass, concrete, ceramic and a woven basket to balance out the design. The basket is a great place to store odds and ends out of site and I love the natural branches in the vase.

This table is such a simple design! I love a console table used as a sofa table – the terms are basically interchangeable, too. The whitewashed wood grain is a neutral base for colour or other neutrals and warm materials. It also comes in two different sizes.

This table comes in a walnut top and marble top, too.

This table is everything. I can’t decide if it belongs in a Manhattan loft or in the hallway of a beachy chic home. It comes in a 3-drawer and 2-drawer size. The shelf below is perfect for plants or a few large books and a natural ceramic vase like this one.

This table is quite a heavy piece all on its own, so I love that it is styled with lighter, more natural elements. The half-dipped vases with natural reeds gives it a desert-chic vibe that I am loving. It’s cool, classic and chic.

This mid-century console table offers storage and a sturdy shelf. It’s white-washed finish makes it very neutral and it would be a great touch in a beach-inspired space or even something farmhouse modern. I like that it is very neutral and very versatile. Because of this, it offers a blank canvas for a variety of accessory options.

Iron & Wood Console Table

This table is an example of how you can incorporate a number of different accessories and fill the entire top but still keep it form looking and feeling too cluttered. You’ll notice that the shelf on the bottom features fewer items and that is by design. Not every space needs to be filled, nor should they be.

Console Storage Cabinets

Mid-Century Walnut Console Cabinet

This simple mid-century modern console cabinet offers so much warmth with this walnut toned wood. These accessories offer a pop of colour and interest and the height is nicely balanced on either end. I love that there is only one piece of artwork here, too. It is colourful and in a frame that matches the wall so the artwork itself is allowed to shine. You’ll notice, too, that the lamp and bowl pull out some of the colours in the painting, too.

Whether or not this style of console cabinet is your deal, I love the simplicity of the items and that they are balanced on either end. It’s uncluttered but still offers eye-catching details with the sculptural pieces that were chosen. Keeping it simple allows those items to shine.

I love this console display. I love that there is large artwork on the wall (I don’t think my love of gallery walls is a secret!) and I also love that there are a few frames leaning on the table. I love the cohesive colour palette. I love the trio of vases and the simple stack of books. This design nails it for me and it is SO easy to recreate.

I love the dimension of these doors! This media console is perfect under a TV or a gorgeous gallery wall. I love that there is a lamp on one side, but also this vase with natural stems on the other to balance the height.
