Until the reign of Louis XVI. consoletables were almost invariably gilded, but they then began to be painted usually in gris-perle, and by degrees they came to be manufactured in rose-wood and mahogany. Although much used in England the console has never been thoroughly acclimatized there; that it has always retained a foreign flavour is indicated by the fact that, unlike most other pieces of furniture, it has failed to commend itself to any but the richer classes.
Adding a table lamp on one side or both sides can offer a beautiful ambience in the evening and can be wired to a main switch or on an electrical timer so that you are greeted with warm welcome after a hard day at work. If adding a lamp on just one side, make sure the objects you place on the opposite side help to create an overall balance look. For example; if your lamp is on the right side of the console, a vase at a lower height could be placed at the left hand side.
If your home is modern avoid heavily ornate pieces and opt for something with clean lines. If your home is more classic, a combination of brass or bronze base with glass top could work well. Selecting something in a light neutral colour will work best in a smaller, darker spaces.
