How to Recognize Entry Table Accessories

An entryway table will look different for each household because everyone’s routines and habits are different. This is perfectly normal! It’s about finding an entryway table layout that works for you, and that looks stylish at the same time. 

When you come home, do you need somewhere to store your keys? Do you need to keep gloves and scarves stored out of sight but somewhere accessible? Or do you simply want to create a stylish looking entryway area? The answers to these questions should inform what is right for you personally, to include on an entry table.

Entry table accessories refer to the items that are placed on the entry table. This could be a combination of many different types of objects and storage vessels, while in other homes it will be purely practical only with a table lamp and tray.

Entry Table Fun Facts:

Typically the entryway table is a console table, which first originated in France during the 17th Century. Back then it was more of an ornate piece of furniture that included sophisticated details. Some parts of the early console tables were developed in Italy too. During this time, the console table was slightly different than what we know them to be today. Instead of being a four-legged piece of furniture, it actually had two legs and was attached to the wall.

While console tables have evolved into four legged slim tables, they can be used throughout the home. Typically this will be to utilize smaller spaces for extra storage and to show off your personal style.
