Scandinavian mini hallway table

George Oliver

Less than 29”, this tiny entryway table makes the most of its small floor real estate by including two practical drawers for anything that you won’t be able to store on its top surface. It’s available in a brown, black, gray, and white finish.

Designer Advice:

While its sleek and wooden design is delightfully Scandinavian, we love the fact that its tapered and outward-pointing legs add a touch of mid-century charm, too.

Mid century modern small entry console

Mid century modern small entry console

Available in four finishes, this entryway table is slightly longer (42”) but reassuringly narrow (14”), and its two spacious drawers are ideal for practical items that wouldn’t be too aesthetically pleasing to display.

Designer Advice:

From the thin horizontal design to its tapered legs, this table is a monument to mid-century modern decor, especially if you opt for the acorn or walnut finish. You can then balance it by displaying some decorative items (like a vase or tray) in lighter colors.

Traditional small entry table

ChooChoo

Just under 40” in length and less than 14” in width, this small entryway console table consists of versatile wood and metal accents, available in black, white, or espresso.

Designer Advice:

Its neutral finishes and, especially, the x-shaped design on its sides make it an unmissable choice in traditional entryways. Be sure to further emphasize this style’s characteristic coziness and sense of familiarity: for example, make the most of the top surface and shelf to display some picture frames and plants.

Breakwater Bay

Available in distressed cream or black, dark cherry, red and vintage gray, this small entryway console table measures less than 36” but packs a ton of storage space in its compact design.

Designer Advice:

While its decorative legs already do a good job of introducing this feminine style, we recommend picking the light cream finish to fully embrace shabby chic decor. Even better, decorate the table with some pink or red flowers and other charming items.

Industrial small console table for entryway

Industrial small console table for entryway

This small entryway console table is the embodiment of industrial decor, with its natural wooden top and the powder-coated metal frame. As it’s only 12” in depth, it’ll work in fairly narrow entryways, too.

Designer Advice:

It doesn’t include any storage beyond the top surface, so you can only really use it for your essentials and to display a couple of decorative elements. After all, industrial interiors tend to be quite minimalistic, so this shouldn’t feel like a compromise.

Buying Guide

When you decorate your small entryway console table, try to make creative decisions based on what goes best with your interior decor.

If you’re a fan of Scandi-style design and want to add a lamp to the table, pick a minimalist model with an understated color scheme and natural wooden accents. If you’ve designed your interior space in a more traditional style, choose a light with a curved, decorative stand and brass or porcelain finishes.

Consider adding some greenery to your entryway table: a leafy plant or vibrant flower can add color and texture to any interior space.

Use the “rule of three” when placing your decorative pieces—group decor items in odd numbers (often three or five) to add depth and visual interest. You can also organize the items’ layout by creating visual triangles with one piece displayed higher than the other two.

Storage is vital for an entryway console. Ensure that you have a space to store your grab-and-go items, such as a phone, keys, and wallet. Ceramic catch-all dishes, small clear containers, and baskets are ideal.

You might also wish to add a mirror to your entryway table so that you can check your look before you head out for the day.

When choosing your small entryway console table, focus on the table’s function and your entryway size. If you choose a console table for storage, opt for a model with cubbies or drawers for you to place items. If your console is used as a decorative statement piece, choose a table with ornate woodwork or a unique finish.

Take the size of your entryway into account when deciding on your console table. For tighter spaces, choose a slim, shallow table. This allows for functionality and room to move around your entryway. If you have a spacious foyer, go with a larger table that offers more depth and a broad width to fill out the space appropriately.

Your small entryway console table should match other types of materials in the hallway or room it’s going to stand in. Because a small entryway console table is often specifically meant to take up a small amount of space in a high-traffic area, choosing cohesive materials can really help streamline the overall look, making your space look less cluttered.

Wood is a very popular option, as it can be painted to match the background wall or moulding in your space. Wood table tops paired with aluminum or iron legs are also in style, and are a great addition to any farmhouse or vintage spaces in your home.
