Resource Furniture: Transforming, Space Saving Furniture from the past
This Antique Solid Oak Refectory Barley Twist Kitchen Table is really an amazing piece of historical furniture!
A Refectory Table is a highly elongated table used originally for dining in monasteries in Medieval Europe. In the Late Middle Ages, the table gradually became a banqueting or feasting table in castles and other noble residences. The original table manufacture was created of oak or walnut and the design is based on a trestle-style.
Later in the 16th century, the secular refectory table spread to Flemish and German locales. While the Mediterranean refectory tables emphasized the use of walnut, oak wood like the one used for this unique table became equally common in the more northern parts of Europe.
