The “console” is a distinctive piece of decor.. and an aesthetic touch
The classic console, that small cupboard or elegant table with a mirror in its traditional shape, is still very desirable in home decorations, and has modern shapes.
Beirut- The console table is one of the important pieces in the home décor, because it takes center stage when entering any home, and it may sometimes reduce the style and style of the interior design.
It is one of the art pieces in the house that reflects the style of the interior decoration in it, through its diverse and different designs that make it an attraction.
The console table is often placed at the entrances to homes, and we see it in many designs, including the modern, which is characterized by bold colors, or the traditional (classic), which depends on decorations, shiny metals, and others.

Interior designer Lina Nasser says that what distinguishes the console is that it performs more than one function, as it adds an aesthetic touch to the entrance to the house, and at the same time is a place to keep keys and personal tools that are used when going out near the door of the house.
Also, the console often contains a large mirror, and this helps to feel the spaciousness of the entrance to the house, especially if the entrance area is small.
And if the housewife does not prefer having a lot of mirrors in her house, she can dispense with the mirror above the console, and replace it with a painting with artistic drawings, which also reflects an aesthetic appearance of the entrance to the house.
The interior designer warns that choosing the shape of the console is mainly related to the entrance decor and its area.
Also, the houses in which the entrance is separated at a special angle from the rest of its parts, allows choosing its own decor that is different from the main house’s decor, but if the entrance to the house is linked to the main halls and overlooks them, it is linked to the rest of the decor.
Simple artistic touches add elegance and beauty to the entrance to the house, and bring comfort to the soul, such as placing artifacts in a way that is consistent with the console and entrance decor, in addition to distributing plants in different places and providing adequate lighting that reflects the beauty of the house.

There are designs from the console designed in the form of geometric lines, which reflect an attractive appearance of the entrance to the house, and there are also modern carved wooden designs that reflect a luxurious and elegant appearance for the entrance to the house, and it is preferable to add some modern vases to complete the aesthetic touches.
