Or they may be wholly free standing, but again narrow of size – about as tall as the dining table or writing table and sometimes with a solid wooden base, scrolled metal supports, on ornamental wooden legs or ornamentally handcrafted wood and metal combo.

What are top counters of console tables consist? They can be solid wood topped, glass topped, metal topped or fiberglass topped – there is a wide range of materials now available to make a console table. Wood topped console tables can have in-lay work, hand-carved details and other special finishes like brass knuckles and other features to make them look pretty.

Mostly, console tables have a mirror fixed above them. Especially if the console table is in the foyer, the mirror is there so that when you fix your head gear before going out you can check whether it is properly set. Many a time candle stands, books, table lamps, flower vases are kept on the console table to add to the ambiance of the home décor.

Most of the console tables have a bottom shelf fixed to them. And the back of the console table has mirror sometimes so people can check out their footwear before stepping out of the house.

Gorgeous Tables – One of the Most Important Furniture for Home Decor

If we look through the pages of history, the earliest mention about tables are in Egyptian history where they used raised stone platforms to keep things off the floor. Tables used for dining was not a concept in use those days. They put up the food on huge plates that was supported on pedestals. Idea of dining tables with chairs came much later. Since the time dining tables became prevalent, metal or wooden tables had gained popularity as much as the stone tables had. Though initially these were comforts enjoyed only by the rich while the poor seldom had anything better than trunks and crates serving as tables. Initially tables were not as high as they are today and were able to be pushed under the beds.

Trestle tables, dining table, gate leg table, coffee table, drawing table, end table, console table, chess table, refectory table, dressing table, work table, Pembroke table, tripod table, side table, night stands, sofa tables, and work tables are kinds of tables used around the table. Square, rectangular, round, and oval are the shapes mostly used as the flat top surface of the table. Collapsible tables, extendable tables have been popular since long; inserting extra leaves or drop sides which can be locked into positions so that when needed, the tables can be made bigger in size. Extensions that can be folded or slid underneath are other options for expanding the top. Solid wood or intricately worked metal tables were the norm – heavy and durable which were expected to last forever.

Oak and teak the common kind of wood used for making furniture in earlier days resulted in solid and heavy furniture that gave dependable and trouble free service for years and years. Heavier the wood, the more value was given to the furniture. Not only tables, all furniture were made of solid real wood, were huge and heavy but gave absolutely fabulous service for years! Minimalistic look and modular tables are contemporary in style and these tables are popular today and very much in demand.
