The console tables were first believed to be first seen in the late 17th
century. These tables were an indispensable part of the French and Italian furniture designs and were seen in most of the aristocratic mansions and palaces in the late 17th
century and the whole of the 18th
century. Examples of the console tables from this time showcase theatrical designs and intricately carved. There are also the simple versions of these tables available whose charm lies in the minimalist designs.
Console tables can be put to a number of uses in today's settings. Uses included a display area for family pictures, to support a bowl for keys and phones, side table for drinks etc. Whilst one console table is good, a pair of tables is more than twice as good! A pair of console tables in the entry way makes a strong focal point. These are elegant and are a good mix of style and function.
A good example of a pair of an elegant pair of antique console tables is this Pair of Georgian Cuban mahogany demi formed console tables
with solid figured tops over finishing aprons uniting square formed tapering legs. Can be polished any shade to match your dining setting, ideal for flanking fireplace or for grand entrance hall. Measure 48" wide.
An example of a good pair of ornate console tables is this charming pair of original 19th Century gilt console tables
