Monastery tables

Discover our made to measure monastery tables | Table du Sud

A monastery table, also called a convent or refectory table, is a beautiful nod to the past within the world of furniture. Are you looking for a new monastery table or are you curious about what a monastery table is? Then quickly read on. We have listed all the information below.   What is a monastery table?   If you aren’t familiar yet with the term monastery table, or convent/refectory table for that matter, it would be nice to know what they mean precisely. This way you can largely determine whether this dining table suits you in terms of taste. Of course, the name(s) already largely give away as to what you can expect.   In the Middle Ages, these tables were mainly found in churches, monasteries and castles and are known for their robust legs, which often have curves. So these tables are entirely made of oak and don’t have a steel frame. Naturally, monastery tables fit well in rural styles, but did you know that these tables can certainly conquer a place in a modern living style? The only question is: do you dare?   Material: choose from 2 or 3 different types of oak   Making oak furniture is Table du Sud's specialty. If you are about to order a monastery table, you should know we don’t only use standard oak for our tables. Almost all tables have two or three options in terms of wood. Below we would like to show you which options these are.   Lived oak   We believe that lived oak is a perfect match for a convent table. Lived oak is oak in its purest form. This means that we leave all knots and cracks in place to ensure the table has a rural and natural look. Of course we will make sure that any sharp edges or holes on the edges are removed so you can’t injure yourself.   Refined oak   This is the counterpart of lived oak that you can sometimes select. For refined oak, we use wood that doesn’t have knots and cracks, so they don’t need to be filled.   New oak   If you can't choose between the two oak types described above, new oak may be the safest option for you. It’s a golden mean, so you’ll come across small cracks and knots in the wood, but we will fill them for you. The filling we use has the same colour as the wood, or, if you prefer, we can also use black. The choice is yours!   Dimensions   As you may already know, we have our own workshop in Heeze where we’re happy to roll up our sleeves to make your perfect dining table. The short line with the showroom and our online customers ensures that we can deliver custom work. If you’re going to order a monastery table, you’ll immediately notice that you aren’t just ordering a standard refectory table with standard sizes that we just take from our stock.   We only get started after you have informed us about your wishes. Do you go for a compact table of 160 cm or do you go for a length of 300 cm? Give us the length, width, height and sheet thickness and we’ll start immediately. Unsure about the size of your table? Read our blog about the number of chairs at the table. This way you can better determine the ideal size of your new table.   Colour of your monastery table   Love at first sight is always possible, but it’s good to know that the pictures of our monastery tables merely give an indication. In reality, much more is possible. You may think when you see a table: gosh, what a beautiful monastery table, but the colour just doesn't fit in our interior. That’s no reason to give up right away!   We offer our tables in more than ten different colours. From silk white to deep black and from hazelnut to walnut. Discover the different options and match them with your current interior. Tip: we also sell matching dining sofas and dining chairs.   Inspiration Do you need more furniture in addition to a monastery table, are you about to furnish a new house or do you just want to change course after a few years? In any case, we’re happy to help you furnish your spaces. If you are looking for inspiration, the different living styles are a good place to start. Are you all about an industrial living style or is Scandinavian your thing? And how about the brand new Japandi? There's plenty to see and a little inspiration never hurts, right?   Frequently asked questions about our monastery tables     Is there a difference between monastery tables and convent/refectory tables? No, these two terms mean the same thing. We like to use the term monastery tables for our furniture.     What does a monastery table cost? That depends on the choices you make while putting together your table. If you select any sizes/colours, you’ll immediately see what it does to the price. That way you won't be faced with any surprises.     What are the delivery costs of a monastery table? With an order amount above €250 we deliver free of charge on the ground floor. See the delivery page for any costs.     Do I have to make a down payment? We require a small deposit of 10% before we get started.     Can I still adjust my wishes after I have ordered? We offer custom work, which means we work specifically for you. This means it isn’t possible to adjust your choices later on. Please contact us as soon as possible if this occurs.     Do I get a warranty on my monastery table? All Table du Sud furniture comes with a 1-year warranty.     Do you make the monastery tables yourself? Of course! We make all our tables in our own workshop in Heeze.

A monastery table, also called a convent or refectory table, is a beautiful nod to the past within the world of furniture. Are you looking for a new monastery table or are you curious about what a monastery table is? Then quickly read on. We have listed all the information below.

 

What is a monastery table?

 

If you aren’t familiar yet with the term monastery table, or convent/refectory table for that matter, it would be nice to know what they mean precisely. This way you can largely determine whether this dining table suits you in terms of taste. Of course, the name(s) already largely give away as to what you can expect.

 

In the Middle Ages, these tables were mainly found in churches, monasteries and castles and are known for their robust legs, which often have curves. So these tables are entirely made of oak and don’t have a steel frame. Naturally, monastery tables fit well in rural styles, but did you know that these tables can certainly conquer a place in a modern living style? The only question is: do you dare?

 

Material: choose from 2 or 3 different types of oak

 

Making oak furniture is Table du Sud's specialty. If you are about to order a monastery table, you should know we don’t only use standard oak for our tables. Almost all tables have two or three options in terms of wood. Below we would like to show you which options these are.

 

Lived oak

 

We believe that lived oak is a perfect match for a convent table. Lived oak is oak in its purest form. This means that we leave all knots and cracks in place to ensure the table has a rural and natural look. Of course we will make sure that any sharp edges or holes on the edges are removed so you can’t injure yourself.

 

Refined oak

 

This is the counterpart of lived oak that you can sometimes select. For refined oak, we use wood that doesn’t have knots and cracks, so they don’t need to be filled.

 

New oak

 

If you can't choose between the two oak types described above, new oak may be the safest option for you. It’s a golden mean, so you’ll come across small cracks and knots in the wood, but we will fill them for you. The filling we use has the same colour as the wood, or, if you prefer, we can also use black. The choice is yours!

Love at first sight is always possible, but it’s good to know that the pictures of our monastery tables merely give an indication. In reality, much more is possible. You may think when you see a table: gosh, what a beautiful monastery table, but the colour just doesn't fit in our interior. That’s no reason to give up right away!
