While a console table is typically not a very large piece of furniture, the impression it makes is big. As one of the first things you may see when entering a home, it sets the stage for what's to come. A console can be used in many highly visible places, adjacent to sofas, in interior hallways or at the entryway. So let's talk about how to go about styling your console like a pro. Here are the steps I go through with my Fairfield and Westchester clients to create a designer look that has dimension and purpose.
Decorating your console is an opportunity to show off your personal style. Perhaps you want to add an organic element such as a plant or display a cherished sculpture. Whatever you choose, always keeping in mind symmetry and overall balance. The process is not extensive but it is certainly a very thoughtful one. It's easy to let your console get filled up with odds and ends but equally as easy to create a look that is polished and makes a statement !
