Console tables fulfil two roles; one is a functional role - in a hall, it's somewhere to put keys, or in a living room, somewhere to display photos or ornaments. The other is an aesthetic role - setting the scene for a welcoming entrance to your home or providing a beautiful addition to your living space. When it's custom made in a particular wood and style to suit your room and decor, it makes a unique addition to your home.
