Ofelia Macaria Console Table March 04th, 2018 - 12:57:19
You may be thinking you could just get an end table or an accent table to do the trick but that is only if you have a little bit of stuff to put away. Console tables are quite a bit larger than accent tables or end tables so they will offer a lot more storage space and help you keep your home looking clean and organized despite all the things you know you have had to put away.
The real trick though may be finding where to put all that stuff. Instead of plopping things on a chair or putting more things on an existing coffee or accent able consider adding console tables to your home. Console tables bump up nicely against a wall to add additional display space and storage room without adding a cluttered appearance to the living area.
Perhaps the best and most popular uses of console tables are in entryways and as accent pieces in a living room. For example when you come through the door of your home you are generally carrying something that needs to be set down in a convenient location. This may be your briefcase groceries or just a set of keys that need to be placed in a spot where they won't get lost. The idea also holds true for many other items ranging from homework to purses. For this reason the console table may be one of the most highly utilized pieces of furniture in your collection. And if you're going to use it every day you want it to be attractive. Fortunately these tables come in so many styles and materials that it is easy to ensure they complement other pieces in the room. In a smaller room or entryway you might want to match the material from which your table is constructed with nearby window sills or doors in the space where it resides although different styles can be paired in a room depending on paint colors and flooring.
Around the 17th-century 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 1675-78 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.
When you are creating a country theme to your home you will want to remove as many of the modern day items in the home as you can. How believable is an old country living room that has remote controls sitting all over the place? This does not mean you are not going to use any of these items; you just want a way to keep them out of the way and from ruining the feel of the space.
When decorating a home there is always a balance to be reached while choosing the right furniture. You want something that suits the style you are trying to create in your home but you also need to make sure it is a functional piece of furniture that will fulfill any needs you may have in your home.
