Lamp and console tables are very handy to have around the home. A lamp table can do what it says on the tin, hold a lamp, but they are also great at placing at the side of you to pop your cuppa, or something a bit stronger, on when relaxing. Console tables serve the same purpose as a sideboard, but in a sleeker and daintier way. Usually with a drawer or two to keep your keys or phones etc. console tables are a lovely piece of furniture to have in the home.
