A console table is an excellent addition to any living room or other space in your home that requires storage and functionality. Electronic devices such as game consoles and televisions are stored on console tables. They can be used as the focal point of a room, behind a couch, or along a wall. As these tables must withstand significant amounts of weight, they must be both functional and aesthetically pleasing. They add a lot of personality to a family room or living room. Built-in drawers or closets for storing books, CDs, and DVDs are common features of console tables, as are display cabinets or stands for displaying speakers and other electronic devices.
