Incredibly Chic Console Tables And Hallway Benches To Brighten Up Your Entrance

Never underestimate the power of a console table or hallway bench to transform a space. As streamlined pieces, they are perfect to accessorise and bring loads of personality into your space. And while hallway benches and console tables often find homes in hallways, it’s not the only place these versatile and beautiful pieces of furniture work well. Read on to see how to style them in your space.

It’s all about the levels

 

A successful room needs a ‘cityscape’ of levels. Enter the humble console table. They are usually slender in width so they are the perfect accent for narrow spaces without taking up too much space and allow you to create vignettes, hang artwork above and include storage below. All while looking damn good doing it. Genius. The key is to navigate the balance between your objects and unused space while avoiding clutter. Lamps, trays, flowers, art, trinkets are all possible candidates for your console vignette. The best way to start is to assemble some pieces and play. A balanced approach works well in a formal setting and you often find asymmetrical displays in more relaxed homes. Add and subtract things until you are happy and voila, you have achieved perfect console styling. You design pro, you!

 

 

One Entryway, Two Ways

 

Entryways are often overlooked spaces, but given we pass through them dozens of times each day, they are an area worthy of our love and attention. Luckily, with a few simple tweaks, an incredibly chic entry is within reach.

 

With a Console Table

 


Isn’t a welcoming and chic entry greeting you, your family and guests a beautiful thing? As far as first impressions go, consider your entry hall the ‘getting out of the limo shot’ that determines whether you get the Wild Rose (for those at home watching The Bachelorette). Don’t be afraid to make it both functional and a focal point. You may have a grand entrance foyer or the tiniest of entries, but a gorgeous rug, some statement art or an oversized mirror, and, of course, a console table to display a carefully curated edit of treasures – both practical and stylish – work well in spaces of all sizes.

 

With a Hallway Bench

 


Waiting for an Uber? A hallway bench. A spot to put your shoes on? A hallway bench. You get the idea. If you have the room, creating a conversation nook with a bench paired with a perfect small table will give the entryway an additional purpose and further define the space. Hang some amazing artwork opposite your bench and you have created a mini gallery to enjoy. The finishing touches in your new zone are a selection of pendant lights to give even the most neutral of spaces an on-trend, hip feel and light it all up. You have officially nailed entryway style.

 

The endless possibilities of benches


A bench seat can also be the incredibly chic finishing touch you never knew you needed in your bedroom. Simply nestled in at the foot of your bed, a bench doesn’t need to do very much at all except be there to add an element of magic to your boudoir. Completely on-trend and here for the long haul, this is a gorgeous addition to any style of bedroom. Did someone say Love Seat?
