Console Tables

What is a console table? As with most other types of furniture, the original use and definition have evolved with time. Essentially, it's commonly accepted that a console table is a low, wide table that's usually set against a wall in dining rooms, living rooms and hallways. It offers extra storage and a handy place for displaying ornaments, photos, houseplants and curios of all kinds.

At HomesDirect365, we have an enviable range of dining room console tables for your home. To find out more, here's a brief overview of what's on offer.


French Console Tables

French fashion and design have been admired here in the UK for centuries, and our furniture collection pays homage to this.

Most of our examples have one, two or three drawers, although some have none.

Many display classic curved cabriole legs, like the Etienne range, while others have simple lathe-turned legs, as with the Delta and Selma ranges.

These tables can be as ornate or as plain as you wish! One example, a remarkable mahogany table, has exaggerated cabriole legs and highly detailed carving along the apron. Likewise, the Louis XV semi-circular console table is beautifully carved with geometric and floral detail along the apron, and the legs are joined by four scrolled stretchers that culminate in a central pillar. The antique white finish really sets this table apart from the rest.

If space is limited, we have narrow tables that will look great in your living room and are slim enough to stand in the hallway without causing problems. Most have drawers as well as a shelf connecting the legs at the bottom, allowing extra space for storage.

As for colour, you will find French dining room console tables in white, black, grey and natural wood finishes, all of which will add to the ambience of your home.


Shabby Chic Console Tables

Ideally, shabby chic designs include furniture that has character, charm and history. The idea is to mix and match textures, fabrics, patterns and colours to create a pleasing, eclectic effect.

Our Weymouth, Juliette and Provence ranges perfectly capture the spirit of this rule! The Weymouth, for example, has two metal-covered drawers with metal cup handles, and a central drawer covered with sacking and a hemp rope handle attached. This is offset by a pure white body and graceful, curved legs.

The two-drawer Provence and Juliette tables are similar in shape, but the Provence has a weathered finish while the Juliette is antique white with a natural wood top and drawer facings.

As well as these examples, any of the items in our French collection would work as a centrepiece for your shabby chic theme! Discover more of our shabby chic dining room console tables here.


Mirrored Console Tables

Mirrors are excellent for making a space appear bigger and lighter, and our mirrored console tables will also add a splash of glamour!

Some, like the Florence, Pattington, 1246, and Sorrento range, rely on seductive simplicity. These are basic in design, with four straight legs or two panel-end legs in a spectacular mirror finish.

Others, like the Argente, echo some of the French tables, with cabriole legs and moulded or carved detail. The difference here is that mirror panels raise this design to another level!

For those who love the daring designs of the 1920s and 30s, we have a neat collection of art deco-inspired console tables. These bold pieces are built to make a statement! They may not have drawers or storage compartments with doors, but they really grab your attention and are great for displaying prized trinkets as well as lamps, books or plants.


Modern Console Tables

If you love contemporary designs and being on trend, our collection of more than 170 modern console tables will definitely please you!

Glass & Metal

One example is the Salerno with its chrome frame and double shelves. The legs are joined at the base, with a supporting stretcher connecting both ends of the table. The short legs of the upper frame and shelf are inset slightly, almost suggesting that this is separate from the main body.

The Antibes and Apex ranges boast stunning gold frames with glass tops. The Antibes table uses black glass for added style and mystique.

The Rothbury console table has a minimalist feel, with a slim bronze-effect frame and clear glass top.

Finally, the Azaria has a gold-chrome finished frame in an abstract design with a glass table top. All of these superb tables have a modern vibe and would complement any contemporary home!

Wood & Glass

The Ferndale is an excellent example of superb quality contemporary design. A bevel-edged wooden table top is cleverly supported by two clear glass panel legs. It has a neat, modern, stylish look, making it a perfect addition to your home.

The Milan uses two oak-effect rectangular frames as legs supporting two glass shelves. The first connects the legs at the base, while the other is raised on cylindrical chrome columns at the top of the frame for an ultra-modern appearance.


Our teak console tables are a popular choice for anyone looking for something a bit more rustic, as well as bringing natural character. Choose between a clear glass or classic teak root table top.


Industrial Console Tables

If you are looking for a twist in the dining room, then our industrial console tables may be for you!

Industrial designs are a curious mix of modern, vintage and retro; they can look futuristic, but they also reflect the nostalgia of our industrial heritage.

These amazing designs play on the colours, textures and materials associated with factories and workshops, allowing us to bring them into our homes.

The HomesDirect365 collection has several examples, like the Shoreditch, a clever combination of metal and light wood. The slim metal legs are angled in a retro style, with a natural wood top that has rounded edges to soften the item, and two drawers sit on each side of an open storage space in the centre.

The Avro is another great option, with a name that hints at the aviation industry. Crafted entirely of stainless steel, this unique table puts you in mind of an aeroplane body with visible rivets and soft curves.

For something more substantial, check out the storage basket industrial console table. This large table has squared iron legs and a sheet metal top. A large wire basket sits at the base, providing ample storage.
