If you are after that high end classic English dining look then our range of Regency pedestal tables is just the ticket. We can match up the tables with numerous types of chairs if you are looking for a complete dining suite - favourites include Chippendale chairs, Trafalgar, Queen Anne, Victorian and various other high end dining chairs in walnut and mahogany. The classic Regency dining table will extend via a leaf system - you can make the table bigger or smaller by adding (or taking away) the leaves. A leaf is the name for the extra section of wood that you add to the table to make it bigger, typically one leaf will measure 24 inches. The larger tables can have up to 3-4 extra leaves if you are after a 16 foot table which can seat 18 people comfortably - assuming you have enough friends (and help) to host a dinner party of that size!
If you are looking for an extra large extending Regency dining table then we can of course get these custom made to suit your exact requirements. We have worked with many high profile interior designers and clients on projects that required an extra large table - just let us know what you need. The tables are hand made here in England by skilled craftsmen to centuries old traditions. Hence they are built to last and will endure for many generations hence making them a great investment and an heirloom to the family. These bigger pieces are also very good for executive boardroom set ups as they can sit so many people, perfect for that all important board meeting.

Many of these extending Regency dining tables are on display in our Hertfordshire antiques showroom so please get in touch for an appointment. Nothing beats actually trying out these tables yourself for size and comfort and to see if the colours and patina to the wood will suit your taste and interior. You can sit at the table trying out all the different chair combinations to find that perfect set. Our showroom is only 25 minutes north of London in the Herts countryside conveniently located where the M25 meets the A1 and we are happy to welcome visitors and clients from all over the world.

Our range of extending Regency dining tables are perfect if you are looking for a refined and stylish look as the Regency design ethic was clean minimalism, making these tables the perfect fit for contemporary interiors. If these tables are not to your taste, we also carry a range of extending Victorian dining tables and sets. Alternatively we carry refectory tables and farmhouse dining sets if you are looking for more a cosy oak farmouse cottage look thats all the rage right now. Our oak tables are great for the kitchen and are probably a bit more hardy in withstanding the knocks and scrapes of regular family use (especially when small children are involved) and can take the odd spill and knock.
