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.
Measuring Tables. To determine the right height for a console table, take measurements in the space you intend to use it. If you’re placing the table behind a sofa, measure the height of the sofa back. A console table should be level with the sofa or about 1 inch below it. For entry tables or dining room buffets, look for console tables that are around 33 inches tall. This average height allows most people to comfortably access its tabletop.
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.
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.
