During the Georgian period, Antique Georgian tables started to develop into many different forms, as cabinet making became more skilled and new tools were available. The main influence was because of designers publishing new ideas giving cabinet makers more inspiration to create furniture for a newer clientele. As fine dining was becoming more fashionable, this was the first time larger dining tables started to be made in greater quantities. This would include new developments of extending tables, with D shaped ends used as console tables when not in use and a drop leaf centre. These would join together to make a large dining table to seat as many as 12 people around. But it was not just larger tables cabinet makers focused on, also smaller pieces to fulfil new activities from tripod tables to accommodate the new fashionable tea drinking, special games playing tables for entertaining, to the work table with a bag fitted underneath for needlework and embroidery implements, made especially for the lady of the household. The Georgian period did produce some really lovely quality pieces of antique furniture, Have a look below at our lovely examples available for sale.

- Jackie and William,
James,It was with a degree of trepidation that we purchased an oak table from yourselves online without viewing it in the ‘flesh’ so to speak. This is something that we said we would not do but we need not have worried as the experience was very positive. I want to thank you for the smooth transaction from negotiating a discount over the phone to delivery to our home in Portstewart, Northern Ireland. We are very pleased with table that was as described and in excellent condition. It took us an age to unwrap so thorough was the packaging! Once again thank you Driscolls for all your help.RegardsJackie and William
