All About High Tables
Have you ever wanted to have a table that allows you to stand comfortably and work on it instead of stooping over? Or what about wanting to sit somewhere slightly higher, so as to enjoy a better view of the tables and people around better? A high table provides exactly that. High tables actually have a long and quiet impressive history behind their existence.
Most commonly seen in the common rooms of Senior Associates and Professors of Ivy League institutions like Oxford, Cambridge, etc. these tables were used for group discussions and meetings. In many institutions, high tables were also kept at the back end of enormous dining rooms with the chairs placed on a higher platform to give a proper level. However, towards the later parts of the era, high tables started being used in everyday household designs for various purposes.
High tables are beneficial mostly for people who are taller. Workbenches are sturdy tables, often elevated or of elongated length and are used with a high stool or while standing. Kitchens and bar counters are also two very common areas where high tables are used. They not only make working easier but also work well as a divider between two specific functional areas
There are various high table options available in the market including chess tables, poker tables, billiards tables and many others. According to the usage, there are high tables which are used for different purposes when meeting the requirements of customers. Depending on availability and requirements, tables come in a wide variety of materials, shapes, and heights depending upon their origin, style, intended use and cost. Many tables are made of wood and some are made of other materials including metal and glass. Some tables consist of a flat surface and one or more supports (legs). A table with a single, central foot is termed as a pedestal table. Long tables often need and require extra legs for support.
