The shape and size of the majority of console tables mean that they are designed to be posited against a wall. This style of table is generally thinner in width and therefore benefits from having the support of the wall to lean, prop and style items against it.
If your console is sitting up against a wall in an entry way, you may wish to hang an artwork on a mirror above it. An artwork can make a grand opening statement for your home and is a great way to introduce colour and reflect your personality. A mirror opens up an area to create a sense of space, it will also help to reflect light and create a brighter feel, while providing a place to check your hair before you rush out the door. Tip: When selecting an artwork or mirror just be sure that the size works well with the scale and colour of the wall, the console and the other objects you are adding to the console.
Console tables with open shelving are a great fit for home bars. They showcase the beautiful colors of bottles and glassware and are easily accessible when entertaining. Organize spirits and mixers from glassware on different shelves.It makes cleanup easier and keeps things organized. Keep fresh ingredients on the tabletop when entertaining. Tip: Fun bar accessories like napkins, cocktail umbrellas, and garnishes should be tucked away when not in use.
The console-table - the slab of which is often of marble - lends itself with peculiar adaptability to ornament, and, especially during the first half of the 18th century which was its most distinguished and, artistically, its most satisfactory period, it was often of extreme grace and elegance. France was always its natural home, and the Mobilier National and the great French palaces still contain many extremely ornate examples, in which fruits and flowers, wreaths and scrolls, gildings and inlayings produce gorgeous yet homogeneous effects.
