Best Uses for an Entry Table

Console/Entry tables are the first impression of your home and you only get one chance to make a first impression, so make it a good one! They are great for showcasing unique pieces you've collected on your travels, displaying your favorite books, showcasing family pictures and displaying with your favorite fresh flowers. Console and entry tables can also serve many purposes. I'm always changing mine up with the seasons and my mood. 

Below I'm sharing some of my favorite styled tables and how each one works for specific spaces. 






Console tables are a great way to store extra seating. This works well for small spaces where you don't have the room for extra chairs but would like to have the option. Store a couple garden stools or benches under this open black console table for pull out seating when needed.

One of the biggest challenges I hear from clients with smaller spaces is worrying that more furniture will make a space feel even smaller. Using lucite furniture helps keep the space visually more open yet creates more space to display things.

The bold graphic wallpaper is gorgeous in this space with 2 larger lamps on a simple table make this a statement space for sure. Finishing off the look with a pop of color in the flowers. I'd say this is a good first impression. 





I have an attraction to x base tables and the bamboo on top of this one makes me love it even more. Tory Burch uses this in her office to display family photos, treasures. 



A little trick to make a space feel larger is adding mirrors. This creates the illusion that the hallway continues in with a mirror under the table.

The use of a floor to ceiling mirror opens up this entry space making it feel larger then it is. How great is that table too?!




This is a great piece to showcase in an entry. The wood tones warm up the space. The pops of color in the flowers and tray are great. Do you have grandma's old chest sitting in your basement? Dust it off and bring it back to life. 



I've always loved this entryway. They've made the most of the small space. Adding a table with drawers helps keep clutter away and somewhere for you to keep your sunglasses, mail, etc. Extra seating and great lighting! 



This yellow entry table works great for this beach house with lots of storage for towels and big drawers to store beach essentials!
