After surviving Lisbon’s 1755 earthquake, the royal family decided to live in a much solider residence than before. It was when the Palace of Ajuda was built and, from there on, several families inhabited it. The palace also underwent some changes through the years, having even been partially destroyed by a fire in the meantime. Inspired by this exquisite building, with such strong roots, Malabar designers conceived this timeless Console. Supported by two shapely designed geometric feet, the console’s top is made of lacquered wood finished with high gloss varnish, embellished with gold leaf coated details. The Cortez console suits every living room with a royalist flair, remembering the kings and queens’ era.
