Consoles in sculpted wood, the baroque decorating spirit

In massive sculpted wood, consoles with a baroque spirit offer a wide array of decorating ideas for modern or classic interiors.

In the history of French furniture, the console in sculpted wood, placed alongside a wall at the entrance of houses or apartments, was used as receptacle for a set of keys, postal mail and the most diverse objects. It was then dedicated to receiving dishes and food waiting to be served at the table, finally winning its letters of nobility as a piece of furniture in its own right.

Today, the most handsome pieces presented on the decoration market can be worth small fortunes. Although a hundred years old, their baroque style with gold and patinated finishing details, created by outstanding craftsman, is more modern than ever in a living room, an entrance or a bedroom and those who acquire these art pieces with a timeless elegance admire them constantly.

Personalisation of an antique reproduction

At their foot, amateurs of these antique reproductions in solid wood engrave a logo, their initials or family crest on the mouldings minutely created to definitely personalize their imprint on these small marvels, often placed in front of a vanity or a decorative mirror. No need to live in a château to treat yourself to a console in a baroque spirit…
