Modern console tables create storage and decor space with minimal floor footprint. Consoles, also called hall or sofa tables, are long and narrow—perfect along the entryway or hallway wall. In the foyer, decorate one with a catchall for keys and mail, a table lamp, and a decorative vase. In the living room, use as a space-saving media console. Employ extra shelf space to display photo frames and small potted plants.
