Ofelia Macaria Console Table February 27th, 2018 - 08:01:00
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.
The story of life these days is somewhat like this "Your job keeps you occupied all day and sometimes even at the night; your busy schedule with family and friends doesn't permit you to make time for yourself. Your life is a complete mess of things that you want to do but aren't able to do and things you are doing but don't want to do. Your life has become a shamble of the necessary and unnecessary substances and no matter how hard you try things won't get better unless there is something that can console you give you the happiness and uplift your life."However finding something like this is close to impossible; but that doesn't mean you should give up.
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.
Console tables have an enormous role to play in the contemporary interiors and each of them represents a subtle form of beauty and perfection. There is no doubt about the fact that the idea of using these tables ways back to the 17th century but the trend of the modern era has accepted them with open arms.
Decorating a console table depends on two factors - decor theme of your home and the placement. When it comes to a decor theme you need to be very clear about the same. Before you start the process of placing home decor items on a table ensure that you have chalked out a rough plan. The best way to go about it is by jotting down what all needs to be placed on a table. If the table is placed in a foyer or a hallway then it will be decked up in a manner to facilitate easy access to day-to-day items. When placed in a living or a dining room the console table is used for placement of decor items or decanters.
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.
