Antique Refectory Tables

Antique Refectory Tables

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.

LoveAntiques makes it easy to find an antique refectory table that suits your home, whatever style you are looking for.

Make a Vintage Refectory Table your Room’s Focal Point  

Whether you have a standalone dining room or an open plan dining area, vintage refectory tables make a great centrepiece and focal point for the room. They can make great kitchen dining tables in larger spaces, where a normal dining table may look a little lost, creating a space for people to gather. 

A refectory table works especially well in a long, narrow space, as the shape of this type of table makes the room seem wider, great for awkward rooms.

An Antique Refectory Dining Table Can Work in any Space

Consider a drop leaf refectory table if you are short on space. This kind of refectory table is rarer, as it’s more of a modern feature, but they can be found. This allows you to open up the table when you have people around, then close it when it’s not in use, so it doesn’t take up as much space. 

Some other things to consider when finding a dining table include: 

  • The shape of the room – ensure there’s plenty of space to move around the table and sit in chairs comfortably 
  • How many people you want to seat – a refectory dining table will usually be big enough for families and people who entertain a lot
