Welcome to The Deep Dive, in which we search high and low for the best of the best products for every corner of your home, from modern chandeliers to vintage rugsNext up: colorful consoles.

No one ever talks about a console table, but few pieces of furniture have its level of impact. Think about it: It’s the first thing we see when we walk in the door and the last thing we see when we’re heading out. It’s where we throw our jackets and bags, Miranda Priestly–style, after a long day at work. It also sets the tone for your whole home—and who wants to give a bad first impression?

Foyers are often dark, cramped, and devoid of any visual interest. That’s where the console table really comes into play: It’s your one big chance to make this tiny space shine (save for a lick of paint on the walls and a colorful rug). Here are 14 bold options that are up to the task:


Add fiery energy to your foyer. 


Warm up basic white walls with terracotta and ochre consoles.


Blush furniture is far from babyish in sleek silhouettes, rounded or angular.


Hesitant to buy a colorful console? Try a wood style and add bright accents to the shelves instead.


Oak veneer and cane details further emphasize the natural vibe of these emerald pieces.


Go for just a pop of color on the legs or invest in allover navy.
