If there is one word that comes to mind when describing Article's amid-century modern consoles and carts, it would be “considered”. And we also wouldn’t fault you for thinking along the lines of, say, “versatile”. Definitely a close second if we’re being honest. While some might see a console as nothing more than a convenient spot to drop their keys as they burst through the front door after a long day, we think of well-styled contemporary consoles as markers of effortless urbanity. Shallow enough to fit into the most unassuming of spaces, yet sturdy enough to prop up your treasured assortment of hand-carved statuettes or your vintage pet rock collection, a carefully selected console suggests great taste while also keeping you organized.

When used in the foyer, Article's modern cart or console table serves as a warm welcome. So it’s important to pay attention to what this piece says about you. When styling console tables it can be helpful to first pick a theme, so you can be sure the pieces and decorations you choose will come together in a cohesive look. The more adventurous among us might opt to create a shrine to their most cherished travel memories. A special place for keepsakes, framed pictures, and prized souvenirs. Things like a Turkish coffee pot, perched atop a stack of travel manuals. A Djembe arranged with a piece of driftwood pulled from the mighty Mississippi that kind of looks like Jim Carrey. Or a colorful selection of travel trinkets you picked up along the way.
