When choosing a table finish material, it’s a good idea to consider what flooring you have in your space. For example, if you have tiled or wooden flooring, a chrome, glass or mirrored, finished console table would be ideal for adding a crisp and modern look to the space.
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.
Chrome finishes are also great alongside coloured or patterned carpets and rugs as they will beautifully reflect the colours. Gloss fits into a range of interiors but would add a lovely smooth look when placed on a coloured carpet or coordinated tiling.
They come with a multitude of different bases such as a trestle, full-frame,sculptural or plinth, and can be made from materials such as wood, glass, concrete, natural stone, metals such as brass or bronze, they can also be clad with mirror, leather or shagreen (stingray leather).
