A good console table is one of the most important decisions you can make for your entryway. Whether you have a proper foyer or are carving your own entry out of a barely there hallway, the first piece of furniture you see when you come home should be one that you love. And we’re not talking surface-level love—we’re talking about the type of love that inspires you to create an Instagram account dedicated to your new table. 

The console table is just as important as the living room sofa. After all, this is the one place you trust to house your most valuable possessions—keys and wallet included. On one hand, your table should be practical; a serviceable surface that doubles as a bonus spot for storage. On the other hand, it’s also your first chance to make a statement and say something about your style and the decor that lies ahead.

Because we know consoles can range from the questionably cheap to the unseemly overpriced, we scoured the internet for the best pieces at every price point. Here are 12 power tables every wallet will appreciate.

Peekaboo Smoke Acrylic Console Table, CB2 ($379)

Cluster Tables, Ferm Living ($544)

Why have one table when you can have three? Between its nesting capabilities and its timeless Scandinavian design, this minimalistic grouping is a step above the rest.

Helix Steel Console, Abc Carpet & Home ($895)

Much like the transparent effect of an acrylic table, the clean, suspended lines of this white console give the impression that the shelves are actually floating. In this case, however, the opportunities for storage are practically endless.

Lesson learned from this old desk-turned-console sourced from a flea market in Lyon, France? Never underestimate the versatility of a hidden gem.

This cylindrical table is so stunning that you’ll never want to set anything on it. This is one way to turn your entry into a work of art.

Celeste Console, Bohinc Studio ($17682)
Shop

Okay, so this incredibly composed piece by Lara Bohinc might even surpass “splurge-worthy,” but that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t want to stare at it all day every day. While its patinated copper surface and shapely brass frame might be for aesthetic fulfillment, the piece is actually ultra functional with two built-in mirrors and a spare drawer.
