English Rustic Refectory Table & William Mary Chair Set

English Rustic Refectory Table & William Mary Chair Set

You are viewing a delightful English oak refectory table with a matching set of 8 William and Mary chairs. I hope the photos do this stunning set some justice, it\’s certainly more impressive in the flesh. If you are looking for that cosy, rustic, provincial farmhouse look then – this is it!

We appreciate it\’s quite an initial outlay but then this set will last for generations hence making it a great heirloom and investment. This will only appreicate with age. As dining together whether with family and friends is perhaps the most important thing we can do as humans – why not do it in complete and utter style? Refectory tables were originally used by monks in their refectorys, hence the name.

You can imagine them drinking trappist ales in their flagons! The table is solid as an ox – chunky, wobble free, resiliant to everything a family can throw at it. We had a similar table when I grew up – it\’s still there. The legs are hand turned and chunky. A top sits the large eating surface in true refectory style and this is 8 feet long – and you can see how it comfortably sits eight people. Then we have the set of 8 William and Mary style high back chairs. Two arms and six sides.

The William and Mary style is from the Tudor era in 17th Century England and again is perfect for those looking for the cosy, rustic, provincial farmhouse look – they also look great in the Great Hall of a castle! Again solid and sturdy, wobble free and very comfortable to sit in – perhaps made even more comfortable with some patterned tie down cushions – a great project for after the purchase so you can match it in with your colour scheme. The chairs are oak and match the table perfectly. They are also incredibly solid and chunky and will last for ever. We bought this set from a dealer in Debenham Suffolk, it is offered in great shape.

Get your bids in early, this unique piece will not be hanging around for long. If required we could sell the table and chairs separately – we also have benches and ladderbacks that would work well around this table.

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.

(Large refectory table with set of ladderback chairs around it )
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.

(Above photo – Great patina to the oak on this farmhouse table – I see a set of Windsors around this )
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.
