  • A table on which meals are served in a dining room
  • A table is a type of furniture comprising an open, flat surface supported by a base or legs. It may be used to hold articles such as food or papers at a convenient or comfortable height when sitting, and is therefore often used in conjunction with chairs.
  • (Dining Tables) The first dining tables of which survivors remain are the type known as refectory tables. They are made usually of oak, and one of the earliest, at Penshurst Place in Kent, has a typical thick top of joined planks supported on three separate trestles.

Castle Howard, North Yorkshire: the dining room Some background information: Castle Howard is one of the grandest private residences in Britain. It was built between 1699 and 1712 for the 3rd Earl of Carlisle to a design by Sir John Vanbrugh. Vanbrugh's design evolved into a Baroque structure with two symmetrical wings projecting to either side of a north-south axis. The crowning central dome was added to the design at a late stage, after building had begun. The stately home is exuberantly decorated in Baroque style, with coronets, cherubs, urns and cyphers, with Roman Doric pilasters on the north front and Corinthian on the south. Many interiors were decorated by Giovanni Antonio Pellegrini. The west wing of the house was not completed when Vanbrugh died in 1726, despite his remonstration with the earl. The house remained even incomplete on the death of the 3rd Earl in 1738, but construction finally started again at the direction of the 4th Earl. However, Vanbrugh's design wasn't emplemented as the west wing was built in a contrasting Palladian style to a design by the 3rd Earl's son-in-law, Sir Thomas Robinson. Again it remained incomplete, with no first floor or roof, at the death of the 4th Earl in 1758. Although a roof had been added, the interior remained undecorated by the death of Robinson in 1777. Rooms were completed stage by stage over the following decades, but the whole was not complete until 1811. A large part of the house was destroyed by fire which broke out on 9 November 1940, including the central dome. Most but not all of the devastated rooms have been restored over the following decades. The house has been open to the public since 1952. Castle Howard is one of the largest country houses in England, with a total of 145 rooms. The current owner the Hon. Simon Howard grew up at the castle and by his own admission still has not visited all of its rooms. Castle Howard has extensive and diverse gardens. There is a large formal garden immediately behind the house, which is prominently situated on a ridge. This was exploited to create an English landscape park, which opens out from the formal garden and merges with the park. Two major garden buildings are set into this landscape: the Temple of the Four Winds at the end of the garden, and the Mausoleum in the park. There is also an arboretum called Ray Wood and a lake on either side of the house. The walled garden contains decorative beds of roses and other flowers. Further buildings outside the preserved gardens include the ruined pyramid currently undergoing restoration, an obelisk and several follies and eyecatchers in the form of fortifications. A John Vanbrugh ornamental pillar known as the Quatre Faces stands in nearby Pretty Wood. Castle Howard is familiar to television and movie audiences as "Barry Lindon" and also both "Brideshead Revisited's" - the TV series featuring Jeremy Irons from 1981 as well as the movie featuring Emma Thompson and Ben Wishaw from 2008. Today this magnificant stately home is part of the Treasure Houses of England heritage group.
