A Brief History of the console

The console table has its origins in French and Italian furniture design, and in the late 17th and early 18th century it was all the rage to have a French console table in your hallway, or an Italian console table in your bedroom. Originally, antique console tables had a half-moon shaped top upon a pair of legs, and they were attached to walls using S shaped brackets called consoles. This is from where these beautiful items got their name and the unique way they were designed enabled the original console tables to look as if they were free standing pieces. Whilst most modern console tables no longer rely on brackets and are fully able to support themselves, there are still a number of the original designs available today if you look hard enough.
