A wood veneer will bring such a tactile and inviting feel, a great first impression if you’re planning on putting your console in your hallway or entrance space. Rich wooden finishes like walnut are perfect for coordinating with more modern materials for a really on trend, mixed material look. Walnut looks especially good with dark luxe finishes like black chrome.
Depending on what colour finish you choose, you can style, coordinate and really modernise your space. Brighter colours are perfect for adding a fresh and vibrant feel, so consider what atmosphere you want to create in your space to help with your colour selection. A white gloss finish will instantly add a clean, crisp and modern luxe look while darker hues such a taupe will add a warm and tactile feel.
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.
Turn a console table into a bedroom vanity by hanging a mirror above it and tucking a stool or chic chair underneath. Do not forget a light source, like a delicate table lamp, to finish this pretty spot for primping. Stash make-up and jewelry in small boxes on the tabletop since most consoles do not have drawers.Tip: Perfume bottles and jewelry can make for beautiful decor too. Keep them easily accessible and highlight their beauty on a pretty tray.
