Choose a half moon or demilune table to cover up a radiator or add some curves to an angular room or hall. Some come with one or more drawers and some include a lower shelf. Try a rectangular one in the dining room or one full of drawers in the hall. Now that you have decided what type and what shape of console table you want you can look at the finer details such as color and accents. It is easy to add a punch of refreshing color and style to a tired, dim room. Add some flair with a striped table in the living room behind your sofa.
Around the 17thcentury in Italy, a console table was a major manifestation of the culture of furniture made for the purpose of display. Many examples of the period were carved and were, in fact, some of the finest pieces of sculpture as much as furniture. An opulent group of consoles was made in 167578 for the Palazzo Colonna in Rome where the supports for the tops were commonly carved as human figures, eagles, tumbling putti (cupids), luxuriant foliage, and dolphins, and they often were gilded.
The lights in an entrance hall are always overlooked. When rooms are small, it is usual to have furniture like sofas against the walls. Where rooms are large, open plan or multipurpose, its often necessary to have at least one free standing sofa, and in this case, you need a sofa table. Once again, a console table can be used as long as it is no higher than the back of the sofa. The table will help to define the space, add style and from a practical point of view, its weight helps to stop the sofa from creeping from its position.
