Vintage dining tables

As the saying goes, the family that eats together, stays together, so it’s important to make mealtimes happy and memorable. The dining table and chairs sits at the heart of any home – a place not only for enjoying food together, but finishing off homework, embarking on craft projects, stirring cake mixture and so much more.

Choosing the right one for you and your family can be tricky, particularly if you have eclectic taste and aren’t looking for an identikit high street number. In that instance, antique and vintage dining tables are a great choice, providing aesthetic beauty, excellent quality and premium quality.

Folding or Round?

There are so many incarnations of the living space stalwart – from a small round dining table to a folding dining table to a large rectangular dining table – you’ll be spoiled for choice and soon wondering why you never considered a vintage dining table before now.

Choosing vintage dining tables and chairs

What you opt for in terms of an antique or vintage dining table depends on multiple factors including your taste, the style of your home and decor and how much space you have.

If you’re short on space, for example, why not go for an extendable dining table? Furniture designers have been making these for centuries and because of that they come in many different styles, so look out for everything from Victorian and Edwardian models to mid century modern incarnations by brands like G Plan. Generally they feature a mechanical central panel or folding leaves at the side and provide optimum versatility, offering the option of anywhere between a two- or four-seater table to a 16-seater when extended. If you love to entertain, this is a fantastic option, presenting extensive room for guests at dinner parties or weekend get-togethers, but able to be folded down to accommodate the immediate family the rest of the time. Invest in a few folding chairs to store elsewhere, which you can bring out to surround the table when you’re at capacity. It’s no wonder the extendable dining table is virtually unchanged from its initial prototype: you can’t improve on perfection, after all.

Perhaps you’ve got the luxury of space and are looking to furnish an elegant second dining room, a place that will only be used on special occasions. In that case, you’ll want a highly prized piece — perhaps a fine mahogany or walnut table, polished to a beautiful lustre. It’s possible to find antique dining tables with beautiful inlaid detailing or parquet surfaces, creating an instant talking in point in any room and elevating the decor to a level of supreme decadence.

Kitchen table and chairs

If you have more of a rustic aesthetic, a bespoke kitchen table made from reclaimed wood could be the right way to go. Finish it with a vibrant runner and mismatched chairs to compound the look and create a focal point for the dining room that people will be dying to sit at.
