Industrial metal console tables combine two opposing elements to form one, cohesive table that’s both stylish and functional, earning them a well-deserved place in our hearts. Due to their seamless implementation of such different materials, they work well with a large variety of home styles. Art deco inspired pieces with geometric legs are a natural choice if you want your metal console table to make a big style statement. Their naturally narrow profile allows them to fit in both small and large spaces alike, so never worry about compromising style so that your table fits in your space.
How to Choose the Perfect Metal Console Table
As is the rule with most home fixtures, deciding on which metal console table works for you depends on where you’ll be placing it. If you’re thinking about a slim, chic addition to your hallway, look for tables that are significantly taller than they are wide. This will place them at the ideal height creating a higher looking ceiling and opening up the space while ensuring that they don’t infringe on floor space. For behind the couch additions, make sure that the back of your sofa and the top of the table sit at about the same height, for the most visually appealing display. Above all, make sure that your table enhances your space without dominating it.
Metal console tables aren’t your only option for a stylish sofa table. Glass console tables offer the same style and function but in a lighter material that really shines in rooms with lots of bright, natural light. Marble console tables add a heavier aspect to the mix, but keep it light with simple compositions and inspiring designs.
