Refectory Tables in Contemporary Interior Design: Blending Tradition with Modernity

Posted on December 01, 2023

Embrace the legacy of remarkable refectory tables, blending tradition with modernity in your contemporary interior. We have quite a few alluring options in our collection. Have a look at our collection to discover the timeless allure of our magnificent 17th-century style refectory tables.
 
We have a true masterpiece in our collection that has a length of over 18 feet, and can comfortably accommodate around 22 people, making it a statement piece for grand gatherings. You can have a look at it under the tables head.
 
Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this table boasts a figured ash two-plank top, showcasing the artistry of pit sawing and hand-planing. The top, adorned with knotty undulating patterns, exudes a tactile charm complemented by its exceptional color and patina.
 
What makes this table truly exceptional is not just its historical design but also its immense size. The table stands on three elegant tapering trestle supports, showcasing the perfect harmony of form and function.
 
Genuine examples of long trestle tables of this magnitude are exceedingly rare, making this piece a treasure. Its rarity is further underscored by its impressive provenance, echoing the grandeur of a similar table sold at Sotheby's for a substantial sum.
 
Each moment around it becomes a celebration of history and craftsmanship, making it not just a table but a living testament to enduring elegance.
