Nothing beats the style and formal elegance of a Victorian dining table. They are an enduring design classic, and for good reason - they can really elevate a whole room giving it a quality high end look. They certainly impress at dinner parties and their solid and chunky design makes them very comfortable to sit at. Typically Victorian tables will have two D ends and stand on chunky hand turned feet. The tables are very solid and sturdy, making them perfect to handle the vigours of daily family life.
One of the great things about these tables is how they work of a leaf system - you can add or take away extra sections to the table to seat more people if required. Also with Victorian tables, the extending mechanism typically works via a pulley at one end of the table that you rotate to wind the central metal rod. As the table opens out you can drop in the extra leaves. This is great as you can extend the table to it's largest configuration for those larger dinner parties. We have tables that go up to sixteen feet and can seat 14-18 people if required. We can go bigger if required, just let us know your requirements. They also make great tables for board rooms. We have even custom made tables to put into various Embassies in London.
Nice video guide on how the leaf system works:
Most Victorian dining tables are in mahogany - the sumptuous patina and colour to mahogany really gives them a sumptuous quality. We do have various Victorian tables in walnut if required so please let us know if this is what you are looking for.
Of course we specialise in providing full dining sets to our clients - so we can source chairs to perfectly match your table. The classic chair would be the Victorian balloon back chair to match the table if you want that authentic Victorian look. We also have a whole host of other chairs - Chippendale, Queen Anne, Regency, William IV, Hepplewhite - so just let us know your requirements and we can source the perfect chair. Many of these sets are on display in our Hertforshire antiques showroom so you can drop in and see how they look in person - nothing beats sitting around the table to try it out for size and comfort.
One of the things I really like about these tables is that in an ever technically advancing world, it's great to have something of real quality hand crafted to centuries old traditions. Eating together, whether with family or friends - is one of the most important things we can do so why not do it in total style. These tables are also great for more formal dining occasions such as dinner parties, and of course Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners. We always get a glut of orders before these important dates. As technology and manufacturing advances at such dizzying paces it's nice to eat and use something with history and tradition.
