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.
I'm not very sure about who the man was behind the creation of this unique and great idea but all I know is he was somebody brilliant. To think and create a piece of the striking allure is definitely something no ordinary man can think; not that ordinary men are unable to craft out ideas but someone who had a vision of his needs as well as those of the people was exceptionally bestowed with intelligence.
If you are looking for a useful all-round table a table can often be a wise choice with no set style rules you can easily find the correct size color and design to suit any room. From the classical polished wood antique style through to the modern glass and chrome styled console tables with such a wide choice you are sure to find something to suit your tastes.
Cracking. One way to make wood console tables look old is to give them a cracked finish. Think about the look of an old table pulled out of a farm house after generations. The paint is starting to crack and break away from the surface. It used to be it took a lot of work to create this look but not anymore. There are 'crackle paints' or crackle additives to add to paint that will make this finish happen very easily. Often all you have to do is apply 1-2 coats and you will have created an antique look with ease.
Side chairs should complement and supplement the existing décor. Over and above furniture should not become a hindrance to the room's passage.
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.
