Sturdy construction with exquisite attention to detail – the defining features of French console tables

French console tables are versatile enough to fit effortlessly into any room of the home. Perfect as a coffee table, a boudoir table, or to decorate a hallway, they bring effortless sophisticated style to any space thanks to beautifully carved details and sturdy construction.

It is the distinct shape of a French console table that truly sets it apart. While some pieces have fluidly curving legs, others feature intricate carving, yet it is the tapering leg shape that is the hallmark of the piece. Deceptively practical, French console tables have a delicate, luxurious look but a sturdy construction that stands the test of time.

French console tables come in a range of shapes, sizes and designs, depending on the era from which they originate. While some boast a subtle sophistication, others feature exquisite detailing and dramatic carving. Some are painted or gilded while others are a rich, dark, natural wood. Some feature inset drawers or shelves.

The benefits of buying antique or vintage French console tables

Although it is usually more expensive to purchase vintage or antique French console tables for your home than to choose a more contemporary piece, it is nevertheless an investment that is well worth your time and money. Not only are older pieces more sturdily built than many modern alternatives, but they also bring a sense of history and heritage into your home that no up to date replica can reproduce.

Not only does an antique or vintage table have a unique character and a true authenticity all of its own, but it has also proven its ability to withstand everything that time can throw at it. Unlike so many pieces today which are manufactured with disposability in mind, a classic piece has been constructed to last.
