A refectory table is a wooden dining table first used by monks in monasteries from the 14th century. Its base has two pedestals or trestles with a wooden slat joining them. The first refectory tables were made from walnut, with oak becoming common by the 16th century.
One of the best ways to give character to your home is to decorate with a gilt pier mirror. It can turn your interior space from something flat to an inspiring room. That’s because decorating with mirrors has a way of bringing brightness into the room. They can also make an otherwise compact space feel grand.
