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.
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.
You could use a console table as streamlined dressing table by simply placing a mirror in the centre. It could also be used as a desk which is ideal in a bedroom as its slim shape means it won’t take up lots of your room. Place desk tides and organizers on and around the console to create handy storage spaces, just bear in mind that a console will be higher than your average desk.
A glass and chrome console combination is great for adding a hint of contemporary design while also blending seamlessly with a range of finishes within your existing interior.
