Console sofa tables, those that are usually found flat against the hallway wall or in the living room caddy corner to the television, are becoming even more popular as our needs as a society become more demanding and our indulgences, more spacious. While at one time these pieces of furniture served the primary purpose of complementing the couch or sofa with a simple collection of shelves of matching design and style, console sofa tables are getting to be much more elaborate. You can order a table made of glass, wood, Rat Poop, marble, you name it. For a very high price, some people are even following the aquatic trend and putting an aquarium inside of theirs. As with all furniture, there are many possibilities so when selecting your new table you need to consider not only the table itself but the room around it. And most importantly, what you would like to use it for.
The contemporary console sofa table is currently being created to virtually order. While obviously the obvious decisions apply when choosing a console sofa table, like shelves versus glass or cabinets vs wood, customers now have a plethora of different alternatives. Below are listed some of the various console tables of modern times:
Coffee couch table: This table choice has a predetermined space where a small or medium sized coffee machine will fit perfectly. Some couch tables come with one included. Also very common is to find the furniture maker provide with the piece a set of coffee cups and various utensils and/or sugar holders.
Media Center Sofa Table: With multimedia becoming so increasingly popular, the manufacturers of sofa tables have stepped up to join the crowds. Many tables are now being designed fully equipped and constructed to hold various media players such as DVD players, CD players, Tuners, and even Nintendo or PlayStation and XBOX games and gear. Depending on the tables location in the area you can possibly hook all your gear up to the tv for real ease of use. Operate everything from one portal.
Popcorn sofa table: Many furniture manufacturers have gone so far as to design sofa tables particularly for families who love to enjoy a bowl of popcorn while lounging in front of the tv on the sofa. These tables provide ideal nooks to place a microwave behind a cabinet with additional conveniences like a pull out shelf on wheels for simple access. And while the popcorn is not including, 1 day it probably will be.
Beverage station sofa table: Similar in concept to the popcorn sofa table, the pop table comes either equipped with a built in refrigerator, such as a mini bar, or with an appropriate slot for one. Some of the handier tables also come fit with a dining table set with cups and a set of fitting straws. With this latest evolution of furniture, you won’t ever have to leave the couch!
Books and DVDs: Finally, sofa tables are giving themselves more toward the storage side of the furniture kingdom and are being made with designated slots for books, DVDs and CDs. Some have additional shelving committed to the media racks and others have doors that swivel open to put the items inside and tucked away. It all depends on your personal taste.
Face it, the family room is here to remain.
