The August issue of Millennial Home focuses on small-space living for good reason: More and more people are downsizing. Millennials and young people in cities live in small apartments, and Baby Boomers, now also empty nesters, are giving up the large home in favor of smaller spaces. No matter the generation, these consumers will need furniture that fits in small spaces while still offering function and style.
To help you meet the needs of these small-space consumers, we've rounded up five consoles that add beauty and function — no matter where they're placed. Take a look.
Farmhouse Console — Jamie Young
No two Farmhouse consoles from Jamie Young are alike. The manufacturer uses mango wood for the top, so each piece is wholly unique. This top does not have a bar finish, so remind customers to use coasters when putting drinks down. Measures 53 inches across and only 16 inches wide.
Brooklyn Console Table — Moe's Home Collection
Industrial and chic, the Brooklyn console table from Moe's Home Collection fits right in a loft setting. Its steel accents give off an industrial vibe while its solid Acacia wood construction ensures it will stand for years. With an additional storage shelf, this console would make a great entertainment center.
Stainless Steel Console — Howard Elliott
Ultra contemporary and ideal for small spaces. Howard Elliott's stainless steel console measures only 47 inches across and 16 inches wide, so it fits easily behind a couch or in the front hallway. The black mirror surface reflects light, and the circular designs in the steel bars bring an extra touch of detail to the piece.
Archer Stainless Steel Sofa Table — Abbyson Living
For the modern consumer, this sofa table (or console as seen in the photo) has sharp lines and a smooth top. Abbyson Living's Archer stainless steel sofa table is both sleek and modern with gold legs and a medium density fiberboard table top. Measures 63 inches long and 16 inches wide.
Tenton Console — Global Views
The Tenton console, measuring just 46 inches wide, mounts to the wall for additional stability. Its tripod legs swoop up and down and are made of strong iron, and the marble tabletop is sturdy. The Global Views console can easily shift its style with a little added decor and wall art.
