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.
A gorgeous sculptural stool can be placed underneath a console to create balance and interest. It’s also a great place to put on and take off your shoes and means you have an extra seat should you ever require it for guests when entertaining. Another great option is a pair of matching upholstered ottomans to create symmetry and add some colour and softness.
A high gloss console table will allow you to brighten up your space alongside adding a smooth and wonderfully reflective finish.
Styling is easy once you know, but there are some important things to address to ensure you create a vignette that looks amazing but also works from a practical stand point. The first step is to consider the function of your console table and its location, then evaluate your needs and style accordingly.
