Outdoor Stone Console Tables Console tables for your outdoor space make great additions not just for decorative purposes but also for functional reasons. Outdoor tables, especially console tables will make your space feel like a true living area, complete with decorative accents. Use a console table in the center of a large space to section off a designated living space and dining space. Outdoor console tables will also nicely accent a wall outdoors and hold items such as outdoor televisions, candles, and lanterns. A console can become a great self-serve station for buffet meals, lemonade, and cookies for the kids, wine and cheese for the adults or anything else that has to do with meals outdoors. When it is time for the pool parties, use the console as a sunscreen station or flashlight station for chasing fireflies in the evenings.
