Gallia Console Table October 23rd, 2017 - 21:06:58
Wooden or distressed consoles often have a great deal of character, and can look wonderful when paired with an antique bed. Attach a mirror to the wall immediately above the table and be sure it is useable from a seated position. Add a par of candlestick lamps with decorative shades if you cant find something feminine, a plain parchment colored lampshade will go with most things, buy ribbon in the color of your bedroom and add a bow as an accent.
Around the 17thcentury in Italy, a console table was a major manifestation of the culture of furniture made for the purpose of display. Many examples of the period were carved and were, in fact, some of the finest pieces of sculpture as much as furniture. An opulent group of consoles was made in 167578 for the Palazzo Colonna in Rome where the supports for the tops were commonly carved as human figures, eagles, tumbling putti (cupids), luxuriant foliage, and dolphins, and they often were gilded.
Console tables are a very busy piece of furniture in most homes. While not every home has a console table, those that start to appreciate the use of console tables eventually wonder how they ever lived without them. Consider the foyer in your home. As soon as you walk in the first thing you see is one of those console tables sitting there waiting to greet you. This is a place where your keys can be put down.
Wood console tables come in a variety of shapes, sizes and looks right from intricately crafted ones boasting of beautiful and elaborate highlights, to the plain Jane ones that look extremely sophisticated. In todays age, when man is turning back to a more pastoral style of living, it is but obvious that the country living style will be back in vogue...and with a bang. Just get yourself one of these fabulous pieces of furniture and explore the wonders of country living with wood console tables.
