Console tables come to us from French furniture designs of the 18th century. Originally, they were small, half-moon shaped tables fastened to the wall at counter height with a “console”, which is a little curved bracket. Sometimes these special little tables had front legs to make it look like it was free-standing. Eventually, they did become free-standing, still with the half-moon shape. These little tables evolved to become as useful as they are decorative. There are a plenty of possibilities for the modern console table, living room, entrance hall, at the end of a corridor, in a dressing room, bathroom….the list is endless.
This halfmoon table, with below the lid, secret storage area has been finished off in “Scottish Green” with burnished wax antique detail completing it. I would have said it now has a decidedly Country feel but perhaps it should then read Scottish Country feel. It is a statement piece, the unique colour of it complimenting perhaps a more sombre style room.
