    The Console is a very good fit for the small entry to my town home. Attractive & Sturdy. The small surface area provides a constraint to being a "catch all" for mail, keys etc.

      I had been looking for a console table that would fit into my small foyer for quite a while. I even considered having one custom made. This one is not only the perfect size, but it matches two other accent tables I already have. I thought it was a little pricey though.

        I use this table as an accent table by the window to put my table lamp on. It's one of the first things people see when they enter the apartment and it does give good impression as it looks modern and elegant although very simple. The marble/granite top makes it look more stylish and expensive. Size and height are perfect, had been looking for this kind of table everywhere but could only find it in Room and Board.
        It got delays in the shipment but I'm still happy with this purchase.

          The walnut finish is beautiful. A small piece (8" deep and 31" wide) to go in a "walk through" at the end of the dining area. Very attractive with a Buddha head on it and a small kilm rug hanging above it.

              I really love this console table. I almost got the marble top but after considering that it was a lot more and could get stained more easily, went with the white quartz and I gotta say, it looks really luxurious. Also, they were out of stock when I ordered it but it came a lot faster than I expected so that was a nice surprise.

                    We needed a small table for collecting keys and other entryway items but was narrow enough to not obstruct our hallway. This table is the perfect size and works well with many different styles. The glass top and simple design also help keep it from feeling like it's taking up a lot of room in a narrow space. We might order the bigger version to fit behind a couch in our living room.

                      Customer comments about Parsons 32x8 29h Console Table:

                      We purchased a 32" x 8" x 29" console table, which is used in my entry way to put keys, mail, displaying small things, etc. It sits a few feet away from my dining table (also Parsons style). The natural steel base is thinner than your standard Parsons but thicker than the Slim line of tables so the legs do not look bulky in the smaller sizes

                      It's very sturdy and has a large enough surface area to be useful without taking up too much space.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Delivery was easy and came at the start of my two-hour window. Everything was properly protected during transport.

                          The glass is not tempered on our Parsons table because the edge of the glass is exposed. Tempered glass shatters when the edge is hit.

                        We are thinking about purchasing two Parsons 54x18x29h console tables with the cherry top. At times we will need to butt them up against each other to make one long table. Will there be a gap between the table tops and if so, how wide?

                        Q:

                        Can color variation from the weld marks be minimized with any type of cleaner or polish? Also, a review included a comment about rust and it appeared on the finish of a table in another customer's photo. Is rust typical with this natural steel base and can it be minimized with a cleaner?

                          A:

                          No, the color variation cannot be minimized. The color variation is a result from the high temperatures from the welding. This is a specific aesthetic to our Parsons design and is considered a prized characteristic, like the unique graining in wood. Sometimes this coloration can appear in a rustic tone which may come across as rust, but can just be a result of the oxidization during the welding. The joints and welds are ground to a smooth surface. Parsons is finished with a clear lacquer to inhibit any further oxidization or rusting. If this is not a desired characteristic, may we suggest our custom Pratt collection. This has the same look as Parsons and you can choose a powder-coat finish. The Graphite powder-coat color will give the look of natural steel but with a more consistent finish. http://www.roomandboard.com/rnb/product/detail.do?productGroupKey=CST_PRATT_INCH&customType=byTheInch

                          A:

                          Our wood tops are all finished with lacquer to protect against stains and water marks. However, moisture can still penetrate if not wiped up and leave marks that can be difficult to remove. Using coasters and wiping up spills will keep your wood table top looking good for the long run.
