The first tables were simple planks of wood supported by trestles. In the early 17th C the first refectory tables appeared with their sturdy legs with joined stretchers. The dining table arrived during the Renaissance but it was in the 18th C that it became a general feature. It was often round and in mahogany or walnut. By the 19th C the extending table was popular. Many other tables of all shapes and sizes appeared from the reign of Louis XV onwards: console tables, small pedestal tables, card tables, etc. The late 19th-early 20th C saw the arrival of the low coffee table and the Majorelle occasional table. Vintage coffee tables of the 20th C can be found not only in wood but in plastic, metal and composite materials.
