Last month, I bought an inexpensive black metal console table for my studio – I needed something slim in my tiny entry as a spot for dropping my keys and phone in the morning when I come to work. Underneath this skinny table I toss my shoes and backpack, I love having all my stuff in one place and easy to grab when I leave.

All of us come home with our keys and phone and packages in hand and need a drop zone for setting them down. It can be tricky to find a table for a small entry or foyer that serves that purpose, but I found a few more for you!

Standard depth console tables jut out into a space and can eat up more of a room than you wish them to. Slim console tables also serve another purpose: they are perfect for areas where you don’t need seating but instead seek to fill the lower half of wall space. Above them you can hang art or photography or a flat screen TV and below use the console for a minimalist display of decorative objects.

Here are a few more consoles in slimmer profiles (15” or less) that will help anyone create a drop zone in a narrow foyer, or fill a blank wall without taking up too much space!
