Vintage Antique Refectory Tables for Sale

A vintage refectory table can be ideal for larger dining rooms where you need something bigger than the usual dining set. Refectory tables date back to Medieval times where they were used in monasteries, so the long narrow design is practical for large groups. Later on, they were used to host grand banquets for nobility, so if you like planning big dinner parties, a refectory table might suit your home.
