Designs to Inspire: Minimalist Console Tables

Designs to Inspire: Minimalist Console Tables

Clean lines, reductive, uncluttered, monochromatic, simplicity, "less is more"-these are some of the terms and concepts that immediately come to mind when thinking about minimalism. 

If you’re looking for the perfect minimalist console table, then you’ve come to the right place. Öken House Studios is popular for its minimalist appearance, which makes it super versatile when it comes to styling.

Console tables are extremely versatile items of furniture that can be placed almost anywhere in the house to instantly add some focal interest. Due to this versatility, the console table has become a timeless addition to the home that can serve a multitude of purposes and even be re-purposed throughout different rooms of the house should you become bored with its initial placement. The perfect piece of furniture for those who like to move things around from time to time.

Using a console table as an entry table is a great way to welcome guests into your home as soon they enter. Console tables work well in narrow spaces, such as hallways, and they don’t have to just be positioned against a wall either. Depending on the size and style of the room, and the placement of the surrounding furniture, you may choose to put the console table behind the sofa. Or even use it as a visual divide to separate different purpose areas of a large open plan room.

Console tables give us the opportunity to display pieces of our personality to our guests, no matter how quirky. But they also work to visually enhance the room. They are a simple way to breathe life into an otherwise drab area of the house. You can display a large decorative piece to act as the focal point of the room, anchoring its surroundings, or opt for symmetrical or asymmetrical design for your console table display just as effectively. One of the most important strategies when you’re styling any piece is to vary your heights. This helps your eye move around which creates a more interesting arrangement (if you have a tall lamp, add something shorter as well, like a stack of books or sculpture). Balance your accessories by using some angular items and some round/curvy items.

A mirror hung over the console table will draw attention to the display whilst making the area seem more spacious and airy.
