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.
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.
If you place a console table in your hallway or on your landing, it will instantly create a useful ledge for your keys, purse, letters and a variety of miscellaneous items.
A console table is one of the most useful items of furniture a home can have. It can provide additional storage which is always a bonus as it prevents clutter from building up, helping to keep a room looking tidy.
