Discover 41 Types of Foyer Tables For Accents and Storage


Welcome to our gallery featuring a wide variety of tables for your foyer.

When you walk into another person’s home as a visitor, you always enter through the front entrance, unless you’re very familiar.

The foyer is designed as a room for your guests to enter into, or so that when you open your front door to a stranger, they can’t see into the more private living areas of your home.

Regardless of whether your foyer is a simple long hall that provides entry to the other areas of your home, or a grand vestibule, you’ll want to include storage options.

While larger pieces of furniture provide more storage, a simple table in your foyer can’t be beat.

These tables are decorative, don’t take up a lot of space, and are perfect for storing small items, like keys, hats, or bags.

In this collection, you’ll see long tables with drawers, narrower tables with shelves, and every design in between. Keep your eyes peeled for round options with elegant carved features and drawers built below the table top.

Regardless of your sense of style, you’re sure to find a piece that appeals to you and will serve perfectly in your foyer.

Metal or wood, the choice is up to you.

We hope you find exactly what you’re looking for, along with some extra inspiration!

The 2 Main Types of Foyer Tables

1. Console Tables

Console tables are narrower tables that are placed against the wall.  These provide surface area, decor while not taking up much space.

2. Centerpiece Tables

These tables are for larger foyers and are placed in the middle of the space.  They are typically round or oval, but can be square.  I prefer the round shape myself.

Here’s an example of a centerpiece table:

Console Table vs. Bench for the Foyer

Another common furniture piece for entry ways is the bench.  I’m particularly fond of benches in entry ways because it offers both storage and a place to sit (I like sitting when putting on shoes).

If space is limited, should you get a console table or bench?  

  • Console table looks better.
  • Bench is more practical since you put items on it and sit on it.
  • Typically the table is taller and obviously not designed for sitting on.
  • Both cost about the same, although you could probably get away with spending less on a bench.

The Hybrid Console Table with Seating

One exception to no seating available with console tables are the variety that include tuck-under seats or stools.  Here’s an example:

Cost

You have to admit that these days furniture prices have come down compared to many years ago.  In the days of lore, in order to get lower cost furniture, you had to buy it used.  These days, there are many options for nice-looking furniture not costing a fortune.  That said, if you want quality, it will cost you.

Generally a console table will run you $100 to $500.  Of course you can spend much, much more but if on a budget a few hundred will easily do it.

Size

There isn’t one universal foyer table size.  It boils down to how much space you have.  You may have little walls space and so you need a short console table.  Or you may have a longer wall against which you can accommodate a longer console table.

The important thing to remember when shopping for an entry hall table is to know your measurements and to double check any prospective table’s dimensions before buying.  Don’t eyeball it.

That said, typically console tables are long and narrow.  They are rectangle or half-circle in shape while centerpiece tables are typically round.

There are several popular styles to choose from, which include:

  • Contemporary
  • Traditional

Shape

As stated above, the most common shapes for an entry hall table include round for a centerpiece style table and rectangle for a console table (against the wall).  However, those aren’t your only choices.  You can also choose the following:

  • Rectangle
  • Half-Circle

Materials

When it comes to choose a table by material, you must consider both the top and frame materials.  Often it’s the same, but not always.

The main table materials include:

  • Manufactured wood
  • Solid wood
  • Glass
  • Mirrored
  • Metal
  • Marble/Granite
  • Wicker

Examples

Table Features

You final decision pertains to the features you’d like to have included.  There are more than you think, but most people opt for shelving and/or drawers and leave it at that.  In fact, for centerpiece tables, it’s rare to have any additional features other than the table itself.

Common console table features include:

  • Shelves
  • Drawers
  • Compartment
  • Magazine Holder
  • Drop-Leaf
  • Seating
  • Wheels
