Antique console tables
There’s something very special about antique furniture. It’s something to do with its history, the people who have used this table, this desk, before you. We have pieces dating from as early as the 18th century in our collection, when the console table was new and very in vogue. But people in the antiques trade consider anything that’s more than 100 years old to be antique, so don’t skip past our early 20th century collection if an antique is what you’re looking for.
What is an antique console table?
An antique console table is a console table that is more than 100 years old. Console tables, sometimes simply referred to as hall tables, are stylish statement pieces. They’re often highly decorative and used for display purposes. They were first made in France in the 1600s. Then, they were rectangular slabs which were supported by brackets mounted to the wall. Now, they come in all sorts of different shapes, including rectangles and squares, but demi-lune console tables (which is just a fancy way of saying ‘half-moon’, or semi-circular) are another popular, and very elegant, option.
Console tables are usually between 30-36 inches tall, and are wider than they are deep. Their shallow tops make them perfect for showing off items and adding a little decoration to those narrow spaces you’ve never been sure how to customise. Consider an antique hall table for your entrance and create a feature out of this underutilised space.
Styling an antique console table
Our antique console tables can be used to liven up those hard to decorate areas like dens or entryways, where you have a more limited space to work with. Our top tip is to layer things up and give your display a bit of height using candle holders and/or table lamps. Station a pair symmetrically at either end of the long table to give an impression of even greater width as well.
In the middle, why not show off your favourite books and magazines or your happiest memories in vintage, tabletop picture frames? A mantle or a carriage clock from our collection of table clocks would also be a striking feature to consider for the centrepiece.
Antique French console tables
Console tables originated in France in the 17th century. We have plenty of antique French console tables in our collection, some of them dating from as far back as the 1700s. Each piece, whether it’s fashioned out of mahogany, walnut, or rosewood, brass, iron, or bronze, makes an individual statement that will transport any room back in time a bit to give it a classy, regency-era atmosphere.
