A table can take many forms, and even in the distant past they were very different in design depending on what they were needed for. Our 1220mm rectangular banquet table is a light, folding product that is easy to set up, store and can be dressed to look very chic and stylish with table linens - excellent for all your sophisticated London occasions.
Although ancient populations didn’t have the very innovative machines that we have today, many of the designs were exceptionally ornate despite this. Depending on location, tables looked very different. Early Egyptian types were made from simple stone and wood, while the Greeks fashioned them using bronze, while Romans made them from different woods and metals combined together. Tables from Rome often depicted mythological figures and animals.
Not all early tables were used as a surface for eating. In fact, stone Egyptian types were more like platforms, keeping food away from the ground. During the Middle Ages, trestle tables were becoming much more common, and provided excellent places to sit down and enjoy a meal - much like today’s modern varieties. Extendable tables came into use around the 15th Century, and 200 years later refectory tables became an evolution of them. Usually rectangular in shape, these were longer than standard trestle tables and consequently, the perfect product when seating big groups of people for dining.
Part of the reason trestle tables are still in use today, is simply because they have all the benefits needed from a product used during meals, events and ceremonies. Our modern day 1220mm rectangular banquet table offers all the practical features that have seen these tables remain popular for hundreds of years, and more so. The fact they fold is a major plus point to choosing this product for your table hire in London requirements. We have lots of experience delivering and installing this item and all our others at functions going on in the capital, and we know how important it can be to rent tables that are straightforward to set up in rapid time.
As well as setting them up easily, these are robust and steady, but not excessively heavy so you’re able to move them around and get them into position without too much effort - it’s worth remembering that we’re able to help with this aspect of your occasion via our full installation service, just let us know when you place your order and we’ll get this arranged for you.
