Some of the most interesting tables in our collection are draper's tables. Draper's tables are of French origin and were once an essential piece of furniture in a cloth merchant's shop in days of old.
Designed with the purpose of unfurling and cutting long swaths of fabric, these tables were designed to have a generous work surface. At Arcadia Antiques we have a superb variety of designs available. Some items have drawers which would have been used for storing cutting tools such as shears, snips, and scissors and a lower level shelf that was used for storing additional fabrics.
In modern homes, these classic tables can be used in clever ways such as for displays, as a console or hall table or as a stunning kitchen island or serving table. Draper tables are also the perfect choice for stylish storage and can be put up against empty walls to create a beautiful statement.
These beautiful antique tables can be incorporated into any decoration style, be it classic or contemporary. Current interior design trends call for the mixing of styles and integrating old with new to achieve a unique effect. You can choose from amongst our comprehensive range to match up with your decorative requirements perfectly.
