Handmade Cohabitation Console

This console shelf has a few tricks up its sleeve. Three interconnecting parts allow you to change its function slightly. An angled surface fitted on top of the base has a parapet edge can hold hangers or other necessary items in place, or use the level surface piece for more stable items. Each section is all made from the same piece of wood to minimize waste.

Georg Console Table and Stool

Small spaces can be tricky, but choose a few furnishings that work in multiple ways and you’ll be as happy as a clam. Take this Georg Console and Stool by Christina Liljenberg Halstrøm, for instance. The minimal, raw oak console would work in entryway as landing pad for keys and mail or in a living or bedroom area as an extra workspace. With only a 12.75″ depth, it could tuck in nicely in all sorts of spots to maximize your space.

3 Leg Table

You won’t like the price tag, but you will probably grow to like- or even love- Wrk-shp’s 3 Leg Table. It’s a little quirky but also entirely minimal and simple in its approach to providing a surface and a light. Three steel legs, one of which houses the fabric covered cord of the light fixture, balance the console-sized wood top, resulting in a perfect piece to live in an entryway or hallway. Concrete facing on the drawer and feet adds further interest to the mix of materials.

Hollister Table

This Hollister Table is an affordable console option, and, correct me if I’m wrong, but it looks pretty good for the price. An iron base supports a natural wood top, and that’s about it. No frills, no fuss, just a table to fit in wherever you need an extra surface. Would it fit in your entryway as a landing pad for keys and mail? Maybe. Behind a sofa for displaying a few favorite objects? Certainly.

Double Cross Dining/Console Table

This dining table has a trick up its sleeve: it folds in half to use as a console, a bar, or a desk, thus giving you the versatility for multiple uses. Push it against a wall for console/bar/desk use, and when guests are over, simply pull it out, unfold it, and you have a proper dinner table.

Rubik Versus Minimalista

If you happen to be casually searching for a minimal console table, you might find a few that look almost identical. Case in point: these two consoles. Both have stainless steel bases with a walnut veneer top and both have similar dimensions; the only big difference is one has a price tag of $650 and the other $450. Can you spot which one’s which?

Pelle Consoles

These petite consoles by Pelle sure pack in the storage options despite their small size- each piece has a shelf plus drawer options to keep items like keys, gloves, and wallets close at hand. Yes, they are a little pricey, and lean towards the more bespoke budget range, but it sure is nice to see something different in the console category, even if it is a little more whimsical than the usual straight edged modern that some of us prefer.

Minimalista Console Table

Here’s another super minimal console table to consider. A stainless steel frame supports a walnut, graphite-on-oak, or honed stone top. There’s not much else to get in the way visually, hence the ‘minimalista’ name tag. And, if the $449 price tag seems a tad too steep, don’t forget the Gear Console ($249).

Gear Console Table

You would be hard pressed to find a console table more simple than this. Heavy duty steel with super thin legs means it almost disappears, yet it’s sturdy enough to take a few stacks of your massive art and photography books.

Rustic Storage Console

I’ve been looking for a table for my entry for things like mail, keys and other remnants from a long day of work. At the time, I wasn’t able to find anything, so I had something made by a local craftsman for under $300. It’s a nice sturdy piece, but it doesn’t have drawers, and that would definitely keep that area tidier than it is looking now.

This piece by WestElm is actually almost exactly the same size, but it has the drawers that I’m now wishing my custom console had. Constructed from solid mango wood, the piece has a nice muted look.

Stanley Console Table

Over the past few years, I’ve read (and responded) to quite a few emails asking about the Hola Y Adios Entry Table and where it might be found. Sadly, it seems to remain unavailable despite its apparent popularity. However, there is hope: look at this little new console table from Gus*. It measures 36″w x 32″h x 10″d, which is the exact same depth as the Hola Y Adios, and is a tad less wide (-4″) and tall (-3″). Plus, it’s got a rectangular recess to keep important things in place (like keys, phones, mail, etc.).

Leaning Man Console

I’d like to say this console would be easy to build, but I think that’s being more than a little optimistic. The leaning design cuts down on visual clutter, seeing as there are two legs instead of the usual four, which would help a small space appear to be just a little larger. There’s also a Leaning Man Side Table (£175.00) if you need a smaller sized occasional table. Designed by Frank Flavell for &then design.

Tagliare Console Table

The Tagliare Console Table has a nice juxtaposition between a reclaimed top surface and a modern box frame below.

Twisted Console by Dylan Gold

Hmm, although the price is a bit dear, this off-kilter console would add a tiny bit of crazy to your room, in a good way…though I suppose it’s up to you to decide if you need any more of that or not.

‘twisted’ is a console table, a wall mounted display cabinet, a vertical bookshelf – or all three. Four in-line boxes frame the twisted one, creating a subtle focal point. The box in question is offset on 3 different axes, perfectly intersecting the adjacent cubes, defying convention. Specifically designed to add just enough chaos to your all-too-regimented world.

70w x 15h x 32h (with stand)
Material: Solid, vertical edge-grain bamboo, Danish oil and wax finish
