Since Ancient times tables have definitely been the most important piece of furniture in the house. They have evolved with the ever-changing lifestyle and the fashion of those that use them.
The first tables that were designed to place against a wall date back to the 15th century and they were used as a serving table and dresser. It was not until the 17th century that the purely decorative wall table became fashionable. Decorations in the shape of paintings, round intarsia, flower/leaf intarsia, geometrical intarsia or marquetry in exotic luxurious types of wood, gilded plasterwork, wood carvings and metalwork in bronze or copper; it can be a feast for the eyes.
