The greatest thing about a console is it is a ‘place anywhere’ piece. Its slender proportions will work well in most spaces so it can be easily relocated to another room in the future if required. It’s also a piece you can take with you in the instance of moving house and it should fit seamlessly into the next space.

Choose a console with enough tabletop space to hold the essentials comfortably; laptop or computer, table lamp, and a notepad. A chair, such as a skirted Parsons chair, is comfortable and woould not take up extra space with its slim design. Tip: Develop a system for keeping important bills and paper organized until you have time to tackle them.
A console can be flanked with an item each side of it such a set of beautiful matching occasional chairs (it’s a great way to store additional seating) or add a couple of tall plants either side in a funky pot such a Fiddle Leaf.
The word is, however, more familiar in its connexion with furniture. The console-table was originally so called because the slab was supported upon a scroll-shaped bracket, or upon legs which in form and contour answered roughly to the idea of a bracket. A console-table has a front and two sides; the back, which remains unornamented, always stands against the wall. Since this piece of furniture was first introduced in the 17th century it has undergone many mutations of form. It has been flat and oblong, oval and bombe; but, save during the Empire period, it has rarely been severe.
