The Henn&Hart console table is an excellent purchase for modern interiors.
Thanks to its gilded finish, it works especially well with interiors where white is the primary color. You could also pair this console table with dark brown or black interiors, but this combo would work the best if you already have other gilded items in your home.
The metal frame of this console table is complemented with a tempered glass tabletop and shelves too. The glass certainly adds to the elegance of this table, but it also means that you should be careful when handling it.
Extremely simple and stylish – these two words perfectly characterize this console table from Homcom. The HOMCOM Freestanding Sideboard Buffet Table wonderfully pairs with contemporary interiors, and it is sleek enough to be placed in a modern-style home as well.
We also like the abundance of headroom in the bottom shelf of this table. If you have plenty of plants but no place to put them, then the HOMCOM Freestanding Sideboard Buffet Table might be the perfect spot.
If you liked the Henn&Hart modern console table but want something in a more industrial style, then this table might be an excellent choice. This console table retains the basic forms of the gilded table while adding a few industrial accents.
To achieve an industrial vibe, this console table abandons the gilded finish and goes for a black one. Additionally, the bottom shelf here is made of fine mesh wire. The tabletop, in the meantime, is again glass.
In the end, this Henn&Hart console table features an interesting and undoubtedly attractive combination of modern and industrial motifs.

This console table is unique in that it is made of 12mm tempered glass. It’s completely transparent and is especially great for modern interiors. Though arguably, you could use it in any home.
When it comes to function, this console table is perhaps the least practical on this list. The tempered glass is thick and thus should be quite sturdy, but we wouldn’t put much weight onto it.
With that, this console table would work the best if you are just looking for an accent piece for your home.
This console table from Breklyn is quite bizarre. The base of this console table is made of polished iron, which imparts a more modern vibe to the table. At the same time, the tabletop is made of chipped, weathered wood, which adds prominent rustic tones to the table.
With that, the Breklyn table fuses a very contrasting combination of styles.
No doubt, this console table is remarkable in its design. However, we think that it will not fit many interiors. Nonetheless, we decided to showcase it on this top because some of our readers may fall in love with it at first sight.
The OSP Home Furnishings Sierra foyer table features a traditional wooden build in a contemporary style. This foyer table is a fine addition to wood-rich interiors – especially if you have other mission-style furniture.
The OSP foyer table features a combination of solid and engineered wood – likely to lower the price while still offering the feel of authentic wood. And although it’s intended as a contemporary piece of furniture, it is neutral enough to work with any home style.
The VASAGLE sofa table features an industrial style composed of a black metal frame with a mesh shelf and a wooden top with a unique charred feel to it. It’s as if the frame has been forged with the wood already mounted – though this is impossible, needless to say.
The white feet somewhat break the style of this table, but you may paint or easily replace them, so we don’t consider that to be a huge downside.
The Gridiron table offers a unique frame combining stainless steel with wood inlays. Like the Breklyn console table, this table combines quite contrasting details, though the difference in style between them isn’t as dramatic.
The Modway Gridiron console table probably won’t be the right choice for many interiors, but its style will certainly be endlessly charming to some of you.
The VASAGLE industrial sofa table’s design makes a return here, but in a different form factor. This console table, despite its undoubtedly industrial style, is sleeker than the sofa table and therefore should fit a wider range of interiors.
In our opinion, this table’s design is neutral enough to work in any home, but it would be ideal if your interior had the same kind of wooden elements as this table.
And finally, we have this vintage/industrial console table. Featuring MDF, wood veneer, and metal, this console table is a wonderful addition to more rustic interiors. It’s also a great choice if you want a more restrained industrial console table.
