Vintage Antique Refectory Tables for Sale

(154 items)

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.

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

  • The shape of the room – ensure there’s plenty of space to move around the table and sit in chairs comfortably
