English Gothic Farmhouse Refectory Table & Chair Set

You are viewing a delightful English oak refectory table with a matching set of 8 Gothic revival chairs. I hope the photos do this stunning set some justice, it’s certainly more impressive in the flesh. If you are looking for that cosy, rustic, provincial farmhouse look then – this is it!

We appreciate it’s quite an initial outlay but then this set will last for generations hence making it a great heirloom and investment. This will only appreicate with age. As dining together whether with family and friends is perhaps the most important thing we can do as humans – why not do it in complete and utter style?

Anyway, enough gumph, lets move onto the table and chairs. Refectory tables were originally used by monks in their refectorys, hence the name. You can imagine them drinking trappist ales in their flagons! The table is solid as an ox – chunky, wobble free, resiliant to everything a family can throw at it. We had a similar table when I grew up – it’s still there. The legs are hand turned and chunky. A top sits the large eating surface in true refectory style and this is 8 feet long – and you can see how it comfortably sits eight people.

Then we have the set of 8 Gothic high back chairs. Two arms and six sides. Again solid and sturdy, wobble free and very comfortable to sit in – perhaps made even more comfortable with  some patterned tie down cushions – a great project for after the purchase so you can match it in with your colour scheme. The chairs are oak and match the table perfectly.

We bought this set from a dealer in Debenham Suffolk, it is offered in great shape. Get your bids in early, this unique piece will not be hanging around for long. If required we could sell the table and chairs separately – we also have benches and ladderbacks that would work well around this table.

14 foot English Victorian Dining Table & Gothic Chippendale Chair Set

You are viewing a stunning English Victorian style 14 foot dining table and a matching set of 8 Gothic Chippendale chairs in mahogany. I hope the photos does this stunning set some justice – it really is better in the flesh. Eating together whether with family or friends is probably the most important thing we can do – so why not do it in total style and quality with a set that will last for generations? We appreciate it’s quite an initial outlay but this will last for centuries hence making it a great investment and family heirloom. It was hand made here in England to centuries old traditions and the quality is out of this world.

The table is a Victorian extending diner that works by a winding mechanism at one end (please see close up photo). The table has four leaves each measuring 18 inches so there are numerous different combinations with this table. A leaf is an extra section of the table you can drop in. There are two D ends at either end of the table each measuring 4 feet. You could have just the two D ends together and the table would be round. Fully extended it is 14 feet long – and this would sit 12 people more than comfortably, perfect for large scale dinner parties and functions.

The hand turned bulbous chunky balloon shaped legs are on castors so this table is easy to move around. There is even a leg under the middle of the table which makes it easy when you use the winding mechanism. The finish to the table is gorgeous, deep luxurious mahogany. The table is solid and sturdy, wobble free and comfortable to sit at.

Then of course we have the matching set of eight Gothic Chippendale style chairs in mahogany. As is normal the set consists of two arm chairs and six side chairs. What can you say about the trusty Chippendale chair – they’re a design classic. In 1754 the Englishman Thomas Chippendale published The Gentleman and Cabinet Maker’s Director by subscription. This was a book of engraved designs for a wide variety of household furniture in the fashionable styles of the time, including the Rococo, Chinese, and Gothic tastes. Chippedale chairs such as these were perhaps the most popular design used in the book.

Typical Chippendale motifs include the ball and claw feet, the cabriole legs with carved motifs and the elegant backsplat with more hand carved interlaced designs and Gothic references. The seats have just been reupholstered and are hence free from any previous owners smells such as smoke and pets. These chairs are so comfortable to sit in. Solid and wobble free, the joints are very tight. They match the table perfectly and this is a dining set fit for a king and a Queen.

We bought this set from a dealer in Sheringham and we will ship it to anywhere in the world. It can be viewed in our Hertfordshire warehouse.
It is ready for home use right away – act fast, this unique set won’t be hanging around for long. If you want other dining chairs to match this table we have them – Queen Anne, George III, Trafalgar, Regency other styles of Chippendale – so please ask.
