How To Style A Console Table

A well styled entryway console table or buffet is one of the first things your guests see when they come in! Follow these steps for designing and staging your own modern coastal entryway!

Choose Your Base

Choose high quality furniture such as our best-selling Costa Three Door or Four Door credenzas from Somerset Bay. These credenzas feature customized grasscloth cabinet doors with a white painted mahogany body, and contemporary ring pull hardware. This piece also provides ample storage bringing added functionality to your entryway!

Hang Focal Point

For your focal point, choose a piece of artwork or a mirror that draws your attention! A piece with a pop of color such as our blush artwork by artist Lillian August is sure to make your entryway feel and look beautiful. For a more detailed design, our handcrafted Fabian Mirror with loops of natural rattan is a warm addition to your modern coastal home.

Add Your Center Piece

A decorative center piece sets the theme for the whole look. We love to bring the outdoors in by displaying a floral arrangement in a beautiful vase. Our Colorblock Flower Vase or Barclay Butera Splash Urn are sure to compliment your flower arrangement. If real flowers aren’t your thing, we also have a large selection of realistic florals available.

A decorative bowl with bright greens is another centerpiece sure to brighten up a room. Our eye-catching huge stoneware bowl with sculptural octopus detail will take center stage as the focal point in any space!


Finally, add those finishing details! Decorative accessories such as our Brass Tangle or White Coral on Acrylic Base are the finishing touch for any entryway staging.

Photo frames can also be an excellent way to add a personal touch. Add a simple touch of casual elegance to any space with the Mother of Pearl Frames (now also available as an 8×10 frame) or add an element of chic décor to your console table with our Heather Blue Faux Grasscloth Frame!
