Large Refectory Tables

At Canonbury Antiques we carry a large range of large refectory tables – perfect for anyone looking for that classic farmhouse look that is so popular right now.

 

Some of our larger farmhouse tables are 12-14 feet and hence our great for large scale dinner parties. Nothing beats a solid large refectory table hand crafted from oak, solid and chunky, a permanent fixture in any kitchen or dining table.

We even carry a number of tables which extend via a leaf system – you add in extra leaves to make the table bigger so hence you can bring it out when occasion fits for a large dinner party when you need to seat and entertain more guests. The average length of a leaf is 24 inches or two feet. One version of large refectory table has leaves that pull out of either end and make the table longer – they are easily stored underneath the table when you don’t need it at it’s largest configuration.

Large refectory tables have been a feature of European life since the Middle Ages when they were first used as part of a monastery in the refectory – hence the name – so the monks could convene to dine and perhaps sup some fine Trappist Ale. Different styles of tables evolved in different countries manifesting in German, French, Spanish and English styles of large refectory table. One thing in common is their simple design and the fact that they are solid and chunky, particularly the hand turned legs. Another great feature of these pieces of furniture is that they are great for withstanding the vigours of every day family life as the oak patina can withstand the knocks, scrapes and occasional spillage. Many of our clients like this feature, particularly if there are small children involved in the mix.

Of course many of these large refectory tables are on display in the Canonbury Antiques North London showroom in the leafy Hertfordshire countryside.

Of course we also have a large array of matching farmhouse chairs – including ladderback, spindleback, Windsor and Mary Tudor. Classic farmhouse kitchen diners that will go perfectly with the large refectory table of your dreams.
