A statement piece that offers storage, the multi-functional white lacquer Radford desk from Safavieh can double as a coffee table when the need arises, or even be used as a console table behind a sofa. The height-adjustable desk includes two roomy drawers, refined lines and glossy white crossed legs for a sleek look.
Designer Gail Fedela created this slim, custom console to fit the entryway of this compact family home. Open shelves hold books, decorative accessories and family photos. A wall-mounted TV frees up additional shelf space and gives the area a streamlined look.
Built-in benches with blue cushions offer comfortable seating in the mudroom, with a place to store shoes underneath. Above the coat hooks, wicker baskets provide enough storage for any beach items you may need. A wooden console table centers the space to complete the chic, coastal design.
A wood-paneled wall is accented by multicolored patterned wallpaper, while three flat-screen televisions provide adequate viewing for game day in this masculine midcentury-modern living room. Two shelving units and a wooden media console provide storage space, while two neutral loveseat sofas allow for plenty of seating.
Moroccan poufs give this bedroom's sitting nook international flair. The vintage Irish wingback chair is covered in Donghia fabric, while Pottery Barn drapes add another layer of texture to the space. A custom bleached-oak console and large painting add a dramatic feel to the nook.
A console brings to mind retro style while serving as not only a functional storage piece but a room divider. The console's rich wood tones mirror the hardwood floor, while strategically arranged wall clocks add personality.
A large steel console provides dining room storage while doubling as a bar. “Between the dining room and the kitchen there needed to be some kind of transition, so I accomplished that with a super heavy steel, air craft style console table that holds a lot of things that you don’t want to see,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
Woven baskets placed underneath the mudroom's console table offer storage for flip flops, towels and other items carried in and out of the home. Photos of beach life hang on the mudroom wall, bringing the coast indoors.
The side entrance has the utility of a mudroom with its tiled floors, storage console and umbrella rack. A guest house to the east echoes the main residence with a gambrel roof, covered porches and shingled facade.
The mudroom boasts a beachy feel with white shiplap walls and dark blue accents. Built-in bench seating on either side of the console table holds storage above and below and features blue cushions and striped pillows to add comfort.
One of the quickest ways for a media room to take on a cluttered look is by using an ill-fitting, open storage TV stand. Since the family has a large DVD collection as well as gaming systems and controllers, concealed storage for this media room was a must. To create a tailor-made storage solution, a vintage wooden dresser was retrofitted as a game storage console and placed directly under the wall-mounted flat-panel TV.
