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.
Console tables are so diverse and available in such a wide selection of designs sizes colors and shapes that it can sometimes be difficult to define the difference between a console table and a sofa table. For those of you who are unsure exactly what they are the definition is really rather vague they are defined as small tables often narrow in shape supported by either two or four legs leaving the decision of whether the table you are looking at is a sofa table or a console table.
A console table is a bit of a riddle. It can be a hall table or a side table but is generally not an end table. It can be a sofa table or a coffee table or accent table but not a dining room table. And never ever is it a mathematical table! To solve the mystery of this extremely versatile item a general guideline for a console table is that it is usually a rectangular piece of furniture that ranges from 2 to 4 feet in length and stands about waist high. Some console tables may be half-moon shaped or round but the most commonly recognized shape is a long rectangle.
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.
There are very few rules regarding the design of the table they can be round rectangular or square some have two legs and so therefore must be secured to the wall whilst others are free standing with all four legs affording you the ability to move it to various positions when needed some can even be used as sofa tables. In general these tables are thin and slender so as not to obtrude too far from the wall making them perfect for lobby's and hallways.
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.
