A Regency Period mahogany console table having a D-form top supported by turned legs with a concave lower shelf.

The underlying theme for Regency furniture was taken from the ancient and the Classical; and whilst pieces were certainly grand, they never failed to be tidy, neat and rigorously symmetrical as can be observed in this piece. Greco-Roman architectural motifs such as doric, ionic, composite and caryatid columns, mouldings, fluting, decorated friezes and tympanums were carved into wood and lent the finishing touches. To add warmth to these otherwise slightly stiff, architectural creations, cabinet makers turned to woods with attitude. Rosewood and mahogany, which were easily available, were often favoured due to their rich colour and texture.
