Monastery ta­ble

Country Homes & Interiors - - ROOM IDEAS -

Also known as re­fec­tory ta­bles, th­ese sub­stan­tial pieces were once a sta­ple within me­dieval din­ing halls. Com­monly made from oak with pedestal legs sup­port­ing the large top, monastery pieces are built to last and have a time­less feel. Rus­tic in char­ac­ter and com­fort­ably seat­ing a large num­ber of guests, this cen­tre­piece is likely to be a talk­ing point for vis­i­tors to your home long after the plates have been cleared. Where to buy... •Maisons du Monde for an op­tion with a dis­tressed look and a zinc top. •Heal’s for a mod­ern take on the tra­di­tional de­sign. •Way­fair for a solid oak, hand-waxed ver­sion.
