Consoles are more than just a table. They're a piece of stylish and functional piece of furniture that can transform any room into an elegant one.
Originally, console tables were just a rectangular piece of wood affixed to the wall using consoles or brackets. It was specifically designed to have no legs to be as unobtrusive as possible. But over the years, the console table in Australia has drastically evolved into an elegant, yet versatile piece of furniture that offers additional storage and practicality to any space.
Console tables are no longer limited to being a boring slab of wall-mounted wood. Today, consoles have transformed to include other shaped options, like half-moon shaped tables. Intricate designs have seen storage options like shelving, cupboards, and drawers now being included.
If you're looking for one, take a look at our range of designer console tables and discover how they can be used in any room of your home.

Vanity Tables and Consoles
This one is for the ladies! This type of wooden console table can hold every beauty kit that you have so you can do your beauty routines more efficiently.
Normally, a vanity table has a wider than usual counter top so it can accommodate mirrors, lamps and accessories.
While there are a ton of variations available out there, you want to choose one that is well-made, sturdy and elegantly designed.
Bars and Buffet Style Consoles
Consoles make a great place to create a dry bar or buffet table.
To get your bar set up, add a wine rack, wine glass holders, and a tray tray to display your prized spirits and alcohol, as well as your glassware. That way, every time there are moments worth celebrating, just reach for a glass and pop the champagne.
Buffet tables on the other hand, are another great function of an oak console table. You can use this as storage for your special dishware, crockery and cutlery. You can also add a console to the kitchen, dining room or living room and display your favourite dishes when not in use.
Hallway tables in Australia, compared to other consoles mentioned here, are usually more narrow, to match the hallway they will be housed in. Despite that, you can still make the most of its function. You can decorate it with small accessories like family photos and little vases, add additional lighting to a space with a lamp atop a console table, or you can place commonly shared items in the house like charging stations or key bowls.
