A console table is one that is placed up against a wall. It can go in a variety of rooms, including hallways. They often have legs and details that are curved and decorative, but many contemporary occasional tables of this type have been modernized and contain cleaner lines. They are used as decorative pieces and can hold small lamps and other collectibles you would like to display.

They can be placed next to a couch or chair, but can be placed anywhere to the side that you like. Side tables can even be purchased for outdoor furnishing as well.
