Consoles are one of my favorite furniture pieces. It’s highly functional, serving as a catchall for an entry or a place to set a drink behind your sofa. I love how it can be purposeful in every room, even if only as a decorative item. Consoles come in endless materials, colors, shapes, and sizes and can light up any styled room whether it be a traditional sitting room or an ultra modern bedroom. The versatility makes it easy to design with. Depending on the selected style, you can stick ottomans underneath for additional seating or even baskets for more storage. A few of my favorites are below!
Caning is just another texture to add to the list of things that are trending. It is a material that has been around since Ancient Egypt, began it’s popularity with the masses in the 1800’s and hasn’t looked back. Caning is made from weaving rattan vine or peel to make everything from tables to lighting. It is surprising a sturdy material, but I still remember as a child trying to rip through the beautiful little hole pattern they make:) Furniture manufacturers are always coming up with modern colors and designs to keep this look fresh. These are some of my favorite pieces at the moment.
