Also called a sofa table, a console table is a piece of accent furniture meant for use in a living room, family room or hallway. It's a great place to put a vase of flowers, pictures and also those other small touches that bring warmth to a home. Especially in a small area or narrow hallway, pairing the console table with a mirror may make the space feel bigger. Console tables are present in a wide variety of styles, sizes, heights and fabrics. Pick where the console table will go, then take dimensions. Knowing how much space you have to work with will help save you money and time in the long term. Then some fun - choose the style of console table you like. If you want it to go with the existing furnishings, then match it with all the furniture currently in the room. If the area is modest in size, select a console table in a light wood finish, because lighter colors have a tendency to make the space seem larger - a good thing in most Hong Kong homes!
