Styling an Entry should be incredibly fun – this is a chance to create a mood and set the tone for the rest of your home. An entry is a room that is a gateway to other rooms. Gateway rooms, similar to “Gateway” towns, are notorious for giving you cheap thrills, some drama and some tchotchkes to aid you in a smooth transition to the main attraction with the “Gateway” just a pleasant memory. The only drawback to this room is that it also tends to be used heavily by you and the other members of your home.
This is where the console table comes in to play. I’ve selected images where the console is a key player. The styles of the entries are different, yet they all have a console table in common. What I like about this particular style of table is its simplicity. At its essence, it’s just a plain flat top to set things on – some have 4 legs, some have 2 legs and are bolted to the wall and some “float.” The legs are not particularly important – it’s the space under and around the console table that is important.
