How To Choose An Antique Farmhouse Table

102 17
The earliest Western tables were simple boards supported on trestles, these are called trestle tables. More often than not, simple board plank rustic looking country tables are referred to as antique farmhouse tables, using indigenous woods and of pegged mortise and tenon construction. It was the French antique farmhouse tables; increasingly appearing in England in the 1990’s that in my opinion helped permeate the term.

Antique farmhouse tables/trestle tables have basically stayed the same for hundreds of years, growing in height seemingly century by century accommodating the chair. The height of 18th/19th century antique farmhouse tables varies from 28 in to 30 in. Always be cautious and check to see if theres ample room to place your legs underneath the antique farmhouse table, especially if it has a large drawer fitted to the frieze. Wear and tear to the bottom of the legs will also reduce the height.

With kitchen dining increasingly more popular than dining in a dining room the demand for good kitchen tables is high.

The choice of tables is wide and varies from formal round tables to rustic long kitchen tables and includes refectory tables, long kitchen tables, extending tables (including draw leaf tables),antique farmhouse tables, Country Tavern Tables, etc.

Whilst the common perception is that most kitchen tables are pine tables there is in fact a wonderful selection of wooden kitchen tables such as Chestnut, oak Walnut, fruitwood, elm, maple etc.

Just as there is great variety of farmhouse table materials also is there a great variety of origins such French Farmhouse tables, West County farmhouse tables and tables from Normandy, Sweden, England and many other destinations.

The width and length of an antique table may vary tremendously so care is needed here. It all depends on your room space and whether as a maximum you want a large table like a 12 to 14 seater or a smaller one. Extending kitchen tables often provide the answer to those wanting a kitchen table of flexible size.

Each good antique table has its own look and feel so often it is worth a visit to the show room to actually see and feel the table before purchasing. Our showroom holds a wonderfully large collection of tables from which to choose.
