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.
Side chairs should complement and supplement the existing décor. Over and above, furniture should not become a hindrance to the room's passage.
We've talked about console tables in entryways and living rooms, where they can be placed against a wall or adjacent to a couch or settee. So where else can you locate your console table? Almost any room in the house! You may have use for one in a sunroom, and certainly a library or study room can benefit from console tables to hold books, a computer and printer, or to attractively display collectibles. Bedrooms are a perfect location, as the tables are a perfect spot for pictures, beauty products, books, lamps, and of course, clocks! Last but not least, it's almost impossible to ignore dining rooms, where a console table can be used for extra plates of food and to hold and display beverages and glasses.
