Rattan entryway table ideas that add a warm, inviting style to your front door entrance. Although rattan furniture has been a favorite of many over the years, we love rattan for its earthy, warm tones. And of course, rattan is sustainably sourced from tropical areas that have a faster-growing cycle than ordinary trees. Rattan just feels right for the home.
Make your houseguests feel welcome. The first place your houseguests see is the front door entrance. And you’ll want this area to always look its best. Decorate the front entrance with accessories that blend family and personal style. As you enter a home the front room and entryway are also known as a foyer or vestibule. In this space, your family enters and exits the home. Make this area comfortable and functional.
Begin decorating your entrance with a console or entryway table. These tables are narrow and long and fit comfortably in a foyer, hall, or even behind a sofa. When the table is behind a sofa, it is sometimes called a sofa table. Another type of sofa is a rounded half-circle-shaped table. This table is called a half-moon table because the tabletop surface is similar to a half-circle shape. As an alternative to a table, you can also use a small cabinet for the entryway. As you’ll see in the image below, a cabinet console table provides extra storage when you need it.
Use the Right Table – Rattan Entryway Table Ideas
Wonder what an entryway table is? Well, it is a long, narrow, and tall table. Made for use while you are standing not for use by someone who is sitting. The main difference between an entryway table and a coffee or side table is how the table is used. Use a coffee, side, or end table while you are sitting down on a chair or sofa. An entryway table is used while standing or as you pass by the table. An entryway or console table is never placed next to a chair or sofa. Although, when the console table is behind a sofa it is used as a sofa table. The extra height of a console table fits nicely behind the sofa’s backside which is higher than the sofa’s front.
A sofa table typically has a set of table lamps and other items such as family photos. The primary purpose of a sofa table when used behind a sofa is to conceal the backside of the sofa. In addition to this, a sofa table provides the perfect opportunity to style a vignette or display decorative objects.
Beginnings of the Console Table
Years ago, a console table began as a simple shelf attached to a wall by brackets or corbels. There was no support from the table legs. Later the console table evolved into a shelf supported by two table legs in the front of the shelf. And remained attached to the wall behind it. Today, the console table is free-standing with four table legs and is not attached to any wall. Another noticeable difference is that the console tables may have additional shelving, drawers, or cabinet doors depending on the style. Today’s console table can have more storage and be larger than the original console table.
Size it Right – Rattan Entryway Table Ideas
Add the right size of entryway table to a foyer based on the size of the foyer. The larger the space the longer the table you can use. Remember to allow adequate room for movement between the furniture. Keep a distance of 30 to 36 inches between the furniture. This allows plenty of room to move between and around the furniture without bumping into other furniture.
Console tables range from 24 to 84 inches wide or long. Allow enough room to comfortably fit guests in the entryway. Especially if you host large gatherings, you’ll want to bring guests from the outside as quickly as possible. During poor weather conditions when outdoor temperatures soar into the 90s and beyond, provide immediate shelter as you usher your guests indoors.
