classical console table

A neoclassical console table is a piece of furniture that was created in the neoclassical period (around 1770 to 1830) and was typically used as a wall console or side table. Classicism was an art movement that refers to antiquity and was characterized by clean lines, geometric shapes and a simple elegance.

A console table is usually made of wood and has a rectangular tabletop that rests on two legs or consoles. The consoles are often in the form of columns or semi-columns and may be decorated with ornate capitals, bases and plinths. The tabletop itself can be smooth or decorated with marquetry or marquetry.

Typical materials for a classic table are mahogany, oak, walnut or maple. Marble was also often used for the tabletop to add an extra decorative touch. Gilt elements were also added to some neoclassical console tables to add an additional elegance and opulence.
