If you find items like your purse, wallet, keys, and mail piling up incessantly on your couch, kitchen counters, or other inconvenient places, you should consider adding a table to your entryway. Whether you have a designated foyer, a small hallway or mudroom, or an open-concept home or studio apartment, you can benefit from an entry table.

Most people refer to entryway tables as console or sofa tables since their use extends far past your front door. As One Kings Lane notes, people also use console tables for extra compact storage, displaying collections or sentimental items, showing off a charcuterie spread, or as a bar cart — the possibilities are endless. Console tables are also a great way to make your home feel a little more inviting and welcoming, showing guests that they have a designated area to set their stuff down. Lots of console tables tend to be a little traditional and stuffy, though. If you have a preference for modern furniture, keep reading for a list of great contemporary console tables for your entryway.
