A staple piece of furniture in any home, console tables can be used in a variety of different room settings. With 15 console tables in the Tom Faulkner collection to choose from, use our handy guide to find out which style will work for your space.
Not just at home in a traditional hallway setting, metal console tables also work well in alcoves, behind sofas, and in reception rooms. Statement pieces like the Versailles and Capricorn console tables work well in larger spaces and really stand out:

For a more contemporary furniture look, the Papillon console table with Dichroic glass top is a real show stopper:

CONSOLE TABLES FOR HALLWAYS
The average hallway is between 90-100cm wide, with the majority of console tables between 30-40cm in depth. It’s important to make sure that there is plenty of room to walk past without the console table dominating the space.
For tricky narrow hallways, pieces like the Madison, Lexington and Siena from our popular Avenues range work well because we can make them very slim. Like all of our handmade furniture, each piece is made to order and fully customisable so we can make the tables to exactly fit the hallway. You can choose from a variety of different finishes and tops with our bespoke console tables.
For alcoves, make sure that the console table fits in with its surrounding space, that it fits the recess with enough space either side and that it doesn’t protrude.

HOW TO STYLE A CONSOLE TABLE
Think about what kind of vignette you want to create. Hallway console tables don’t just need to home the obligatory keys and sunglasses! Try playing around with accessories like a table lamp, vase or a small collection of books or photographs.
CONSOLE TABLE AND MIRROR COMBINATIONS
One thing visitors to our Chelsea showroom often ask is which mirror to pair with which console table. We have a range of contemporary and classic metal framed mirrors which work well with our console tables. As a general rule of thumb, you want to make sure that the mirror diameter is always smaller than the length of the console table, to keep things in proportion.
Below are some classic combinations which work well together:
