Norman (Romanesque) corbels often have a plain appearance,  although they may be elaborately carved with stylised heads of humans, animals or imaginary "beasts", and sometimes with other motifs (Kilpeck church in Herefordshire is a notable example, with 85 of its original 91 richly carved corbels still surviving). 
Similarly, in the Early English period corbels were sometimes elaborately carved, as at Lincoln Cathedral, and sometimes more simply so. 
Corbels sometimes end with a point apparently growing into the wall, or forming a knot, and often are supported by angels and other figures. In the later periods the carved foliage and other ornaments used on corbels resemble those used in the capitals of columns. 
Throughout England, in half-timber work, wooden corbels ("tassels" or "braggers") abound, carrying window-sills or oriel windows in wood, which also are often carved. 
The corbels carrying balconies in Italy and France were sometimes of great size and richly carved, and some of the finest examples of the Italian Cinquecento (16th century) style are found in them. Taking a cue from 16th-century practice, the Paris-trained designers of 19th-century Beaux-Arts architecture were encouraged to show imagination in varying corbels. [ citation needed ]
A corbel table is a projecting moulded string course supported by a range of corbels. Sometimes these corbels carry a small arcade under the string course, the arches of which are pointed and trefoiled. As a rule, the corbel table carries the gutter, but in Lombard work the arcaded corbel table was used as a decoration to subdivide the storeys and break up the wall surface. In Italy sometimes over the corbels will form a moulding, and above a plain piece of projecting wall forming a parapet. 
The corbels carrying the arches of the corbel tables in Italy and France were often elaborately moulded, and sometimes in two or three courses projecting over one another those carrying the machicolations of English and French castles had four courses. [ citation needed ]
In modern chimney construction, a corbel table is constructed on the inside of a flue in the form of a concrete ring beam supported by a range of corbels. The corbels can be either in-situ or pre-cast concrete. The corbel tables described here are built at approximately ten-metre intervals to ensure stability of the barrel of refractory bricks constructed thereon. [ citation needed ]
Corbelling, where rows of corbels gradually build a wall out from the vertical, has long been used as a simple kind of vaulting, for example in many Neolithic chambered cairns, where walls are gradually corbelled in until the opening can be spanned by a slab.
Corbelled vaults are very common in early architecture around the world. Different types may be called the beehive house (ancient Britain and elsewhere), the Irish clochán, the pre-Roman nuraghe of Sardinia, and the tholos tombs (or "beehive tombs") of Late Bronze Age Greece and other parts of the Mediterranean.
In medieval architecture the technique was used to support upper storeys or a parapet projecting forward from the wall plane, often to form machicolation (openings between corbels could be used to drop things onto attackers). This later became a decorative feature, without the openings. Corbelling supporting upper stories and particularly supporting projecting corner turrets subsequently became a characteristic of the Scottish baronial style.
Medieval timber-framed buildings often employ jettying, where upper stories are cantilevered out on projecting wooden beams in a similar manner to corbelling.
25 Wainscoting Ideas That Don't Skimp on Style
Give your home wall-to-wall character with this timeless feature.
Once upon a time, wainscoting served a strictly utilitarian purpose. Back in the 18th century&mdashyou know, before central heating existed&mdashadding wood to the lower half of the wall was a stylish and stealth way to insulate a room. But just because wainscoting is no longer required to keep your home warm doesn't mean it's lost all its magic. With the right pairing, this once old-school element can feel surprisingly fresh and modern.
Below, 25 wainscoting ideas that don't skimp on style. Whether you favor minimalism, traditional, or French country chic, there's bound to be something for every style.
When it comes to wainscoting, simplicity doesn't have to be boring. In this Northern California home, the subtle shiplap paneling pairs nicely with the whimsical Pierre Frey wallpaper.
Whoever thinks wainscoting is strictly reserved for traditional decor has never seen this Japanese-style home in Hunter, New York. When paired with sleek furniture and silhouettes, the pine wainscoting in this room looks refreshingly modern.
As this Grey Gardens-inspired East Hamptons home proves, wainscoting can add an air of sophistication to an otherwise quirky space. The gray detailing deftly juxtaposes the Cole & Son's wallcovering and mirror by Made Goods.
Never underestimate the power of a painted wall. In the House of ELLE Decor, the tonal combination feels elegant, yet understated. The wall is painted in Pigeon, the wainscoting in Blue Gray, both courtesy of Farrow & Ball.
If you want to give your wainscoted walls a stylish edge, consider adding beadboard. Defined as a series of narrow wooden planks, beadboard is an effective way to add visual interest to your wainscoting. In this Georgian guest bathroom, the beadboard detailing is coated in Farrow & Ball's Cornforth White.
While an interior's wainscoting deserves to be celebrated, it doesn't have to dictate the rest of the room. By propping up a framed painting, installing a towel rack, and adding a strategically placed chair, this Connecticut home blurs the line between form and function.
This Lake Tahoe retreat takes wainscoting to the next dimension, thanks to its recessed beadboard and pronounced ledge.
Pay homage to the element's historical roots by pairing your wainscoted walls with classic features such as a grand staircase, ornate mirror, and white-washed bust. Let this storied Harlem brownstone show you how it's done.
Want to revitalize traditional wainscoting? Take a cue from this 18th century Parisian apartment and douse the walls in a vibrant shade of red.
Embrace your bold eye for design by pairing lively wallpaper with a colorful, wainscoted base. The combination in this Elizabeth Roberts-designed condo gives the dining room a rich and welcoming atmosphere.
Design rules are meant to be broken&mdashand, yes, that includes wainscoting your walls. Wainscoting is generally defined as placing wooden panels at the bottom half of your wall, but why stop there? As this Upper West Side prewar apartment proves, the sky (or ceiling) is the limit.
What's black, white, and chic all over? This powder room in Ernest de la Torre's upstate New York home. The black wainscoting, which is painted in Benjamin Moore's Midnight, picks up the black accents and whimsical illustrations on the Shantell Martin mural.
Flushed in Benjamin Moore's White Dove, the tall wainscoting gives this Oakland home's foyer a dash of drama. Plus, the artwork, pendant light, and brown accent paint create the illusion of a high ceiling.
For a wainscoting idea that strikes a balance between subtle and statement, take a cue from this Brigette Romanek-designed home. While the dove gray walls contrast nicely against the white wainscoting, the combination doesn't take too much attention away from the room's artwork and dining set.
Painted in Farrow & Ball's Dimpse, the full beadboard wall in Amanda Seyfried's Catskills home is equal parts rustic and relaxing.
With carved consoles by Thom Filicia, Jonathan Burden's mirrors, and wainscoting to boot, this foyer gives a family home in Connecticut a stately sensibility.
If your personal style leans to the maximal end of the spectrum, a wainscoted wall is a clever way to break up contrasting patterns. In this bold breakfast nook, the beadboard wall adds some breathing room between the striped wallpaper and painted floor.
Bring your wainscoting idea to new heights, literally, as seen in this Portola Valley home. In this home office, the full beadboard wall creates a designated desk area. The airy roller shades, woven desk chair, and braided hemp rug from Rose Tarlow give this traditional design element a California cool edge.
Finished in a dark wood stain, the traditional wainscoting in this Chicago-based powder room adds some decorum to the lively, hand-painted wallpaper.
Trade in the ubiquitous pop of color for a wainscoted accent wall, as seen in this upstate New York space. Coated in a layer of black paint, this accent wall simultaneously makes a statement and pairs well with the room's color palette.
In this San Francisco home, decorator Palmer Weiss reimagined this wainscoted dining room in a palette of earthy, monochromatic tones. John Rosselli chairs and photographs by Vincent Fournier round out the space, striking a balance between traditional and terrestrial.
Use your wainscoting to offset a bright wall color, as seen in this Hamptons home. The crisp white accents keeps this nautical space grounded and serene.
Why settle for one wainscoting style when you can enjoy two? The juxtaposition between the beveled and beadboard details add some nuance to this sunny Hamptons home.
Paired with a leopard runner and a metallic wallcovering, Too Faced founders Jerrod Blandino and Jeremy Johnson's wainscoted foyer feels warm and welcoming without compromising an ounce of glamour.
Turn your wainscoted walls into the room's wow factor by dialing up the drama. In this Los Angeles house tour, the full-wall wainscoting and Benjamin Moore's Juniper Green hue pop nicely against the black ceiling and dining set.
The word table is derived from Old English tabele, derived from the Latin word tabula ("a board, plank, flat top piece"), which replaced OE bord  its current spelling reflects the influence of the French table.
Some very early tables were made and used by the Ancient Egyptians  around 2500 BC, using wood and alabaster.  They were often little more than stone platforms used to keep objects off the floor, though a few examples of wooden tables have been found in tombs. Food and drinks were usually put on large plates deposed on a pedestal for eating. The Egyptians made use of various small tables and elevated playing boards. The Chinese also created very early tables in order to pursue the arts of writing and painting, as did people in Mesopotamia, where various metals were used. 
The Greeks and Romans made more frequent use of tables, notably for eating, although Greek tables were pushed under a bed after use. The Greeks invented a piece of furniture very similar to the guéridon. Tables were made of marble or wood and metal (typically bronze or silver alloys), sometimes with richly ornate legs. Later, the larger rectangular tables were made of separate platforms and pillars. The Romans also introduced a large, semicircular table to Italy, the mensa lunata.
Furniture during the Middle Ages is not as well known as that of earlier or later periods, and most sources show the types used by the nobility. In the Eastern Roman Empire, tables were made of metal or wood, usually with four feet and frequently linked by x-shaped stretchers. Tables for eating were large and often round or semicircular. A combination of a small round table and a lectern seemed very popular as a writing table.  In western Europe, the invasions and internecine wars caused most of the knowledge inherited from the classical era to be lost. As a result of the necessary movability, most tables were simple trestle tables, although small round tables made from joinery reappeared during the 15th century and onward. In the Gothic era, the chest became widespread and was often used as a table.
Refectory tables first appeared at least as early as the 17th century, as an advancement of the trestle table these tables were typically quite long and wide and capable of supporting a sizeable banquet in the great hall or other reception room of a castle.
Tables come in a wide variety of materials, shapes, and heights dependent upon their origin, style, intended use and cost. Many tables are made of wood or wood-based products some are made of other materials including metal and glass. Most tables are composed of a flat surface and one or more supports (legs). A table with a single, central foot is a pedestal table. Long tables often have extra legs for support.
Table tops can be in virtually any shape, although rectangular, square, round (e.g. the round table), and oval tops are the most frequent. Others have higher surfaces for personal use while either standing or sitting on a tall stool.
Many tables have tops that can be adjusted to change their height, position, shape, or size, either with foldable, sliding or extensions parts that can alter the shape of the top. Some tables are entirely foldable for easy transportation, e.g. camping or storage, e.g., TV trays. Small tables in trains and aircraft may be fixed or foldable, although they are sometimes considered as simply convenient shelves rather than tables.
Tables can be freestanding or designed for placement against a wall. Tables designed to be placed against a wall are known as Pier tables  or console table s (French: console, "support bracket") and may be bracket-mounted (traditionally), like a shelf, or have legs, which sometimes imitate the look of a bracket-mounted table.
Tables of various shapes, heights, and sizes are designed for specific uses:
