At Antique Tables we have a varied stock of large and long antique dining tables and farmhouse tables including round, rectangular and oval shaped tables with varying seating capacities such as 8 seater, 10 seater and 12 seater.
Farmhouse tables have evolved over the period of time. The earliest tables were simple boards supported on trestles, called trestle tables. These simple board plank tables had a rustic look and were made using indigenous woods and were of pegged mortise and tenon construction and were later referred to as antique farmhouse tables. The French antique farmhouse table started appearing in England in the 1990s. The tables have basically stayed the same for hundreds of years.
Most tables are a standard height of about 30.5 inches but some allow more leg room than others due to the drawers. The width and length of an antique table may vary tremendously and so you need to consider what kind of table you would want to fit in, a 12 to 14 seater or a smaller one. Extending kitchen tables often provide the answer to those wanting a kitchen table with flexibility.
Each good antique table has its own look and feel. Where possible it is better to visit the showroom to actually see and feel the table before purchasing. Our showroom holds a wonderfully large collection of tables for you to choose from. Our stock is constantly changing. If you are looking for something you don’t find, then please let us know and we can try to find that particular table for you.
