This Brooklyn living space showcases a clean, modern black-and-white color palette with pops of color throughout. The gallery wall with framed black-and-white photographs give the room a conversation starter, flanked by two velvet red armchairs and fabric-faced console table. Plush, creamy textures fill the room, from the faux area rug to the cushioned sofa.
A funky metallic vase of white flowers and a trio of matching candlesticks decorate the contemporary black console table in this chic foyer. A stone backdrop is a nod to the original Craftsman style of the home. A staircase with cable rails completes the eye-catching design.
In the foyer, designers wanted to make a bold statement with the space's design, so they brought in crisp, white flowers to contrast with the dark wall tile. The wall tile gives the space a three dimensional effect and relief with lighting. Finally, a custom designed, modern console table was crafted out of dark and white woods to help seamlessly transition the design from white to dark.
This soft dining room features an all-over neutral color palette paired with traditional arched doorways and white crown moldings. Leather ivory and plush powder blue chairs are positioned around a lacquered dining table with a gold candelabra chandelier. A mirrored console cabinet provides a spot for two lamps.
The modern red console table with X-cross base is a perfect fit for this playful space with a bold color scheme and eclectic style. The modern style table offers drawers for bedroom essentials and display space for interior design books and white ceramic plant pots, with a low shelf that offers easy access to shoes.
Geometry rules the day in this crisp, white entryway with dynamic and dramatic lines. Treads on the winding stairway connect to the wide-plank hardwood floors, grounding the space. Bold black-and-white artwork above the console table mimics the lines of a fun, modern chandelier. High windows bring in loads of natural sunlight, emphasizing the space's openness and airiness.
The design of this console table is as smart as it is stylish with many levels of shelving and enough space to tuck in two fringed stools. On top, gold-and-white lamps pick up the shimmery jewel tones of the art on the wall nearby.
Porcelain tile in a gorgeous herringbone pattern provides the look of wood, but the durability of tile, in a potentially wet space. An original work of wax art in vibrant shades of teal hangs above a white coral-esque console table. Yellow vases offer further pops of color and join the two spaces.
A pair of Moroccan-style mirrors and contemporary console tables flank a smart white mantle. Orange and gold accents throughout this formal living room play perfectly off the neutral palette. Eclectic accessories finish the space as perfect conversation pieces.
A pair of smaller cube ottomans covered in a grid pattern fabric sit under a shell white curved-top console table just off the great room’s seating area. Large 48 x 48 custom art by artist Celery Jones hangs above and brings the scenic Texas landscape inside.
In a living room where space is at a premium, there may not be enough tabletop surface to add framed photos or treasured objects. To inject personality into a living room without taking up valuable tabletop space, consider a gallery wall grouping. Here, a tall wall features nine oversized black-and-white prints of the family with a steel console placed below to anchor the space. When adding a console table to a living room, stick with a maximum depth of 18 inches to keep from impeding traffic flow.
This Boston penthouse's winding staircase not only showcases its ultra hip style but allows for an uninterpreted city view as one climbs each wooden tread to the second floor. Other remarkable and interesting features are the modern cafe table in metal and glass placed underneath the stairs and the gorgeous console chest and artwork that diverge from the all-white color palette.
The open entryway of this Cape Cod-style waterfront home features whitewashed, paneled walls, a curving banister and a rattan console table that speaks to the home's casual, coastal mood. Pale hardwood floors and a neutral carpet runner on the stairway combine with the white walls and trim to create a clean, crisp, neutral backdrop that's both restful and stylish.
Since this living room was so large, designers wanted to create two, functional spaces in a single room. To define the areas, a console table was placed between the two sofas. Then, designers chose two different anchor colors-gray for one area and white for the other. The gray space is meant to be a warmer, more formal entertaining and relaxing space, while the white section is brighter and more fun-meant for a more casual gathering.
The lines of this crisp, clean living room and entry guide the eye straight through the wide, arched doorway to the beautiful water views beyond. Paneled walls are painted white, as is the millwork, creating a soft backdrop to the pale aquas and earthy tans in the furnishings and accessories. A traditional carpet runner ascends the stairs, while a rattan console table adds to the homey, beachy vibe.
This stylish living room boasts two navy sectional sofas paired with a set of white and black polka dot armchairs.
