Tables have long been an essential requirement and history shows that they’ve also been very diverse too. Our 1220mm circular banquet table is one of those products where popularity never seems to wane.
Believe it or not, basic trestle tables have been around for hundreds and hundreds of years. The demand for our present day product reveals that many table hire customers in London appreciate the array of features it offers, including the fact it folds, is stackable and very cost effective as well. Over the course of history, not all tables created have been affordable. This is because in the early days furniture was often used by those in power or the rich. Those living in Ancient Egypt might have found tables a bit more affordable, simply because they were quite often fashioned from stone!
Rather than surrounding them with seating, these were used more like platforms, keeping objects that could otherwise get contaminated off the ground. It was a bit of a different story in the Greece and Rome of old, as these cultures made more elaborate tables, featuring precious metals and exotic woods. The overall design could also be very ornate, with Roman versions depicting wonderfully carved animals and figures from mythology. Although all of these tables were very different in design, they did have something in common… the craftsmen were responding to the needs at the time.
So emperors who were keen to show their wealth and power could do so via artistic, elaborate products that were very expensive to make, or those who wanted to pursue the arts, for example, had specific tables at their disposal. Designing for those in-demand features continued through time right up to this day - and into the future! As banquets and feasting in larger groups became popular then trestle tables were the perfect creation. In use from around the Middle Ages, these tables gave rise to many other products, whose features are still around today.
From folding and extendable tables, and those inspired by this early design, from desks, work and chess tables, we owe much to these original inventions.
Our 1220mm circular banquet table hire range is an evolution of a design that has proved so integral to many different premises throughout the years.
