Beautiful, Functional Gothic Tables and Furniture

Gothic Quatrefoil Console TableFurniture has been a form of art for centuries and many a furniture maker has shown his and her artistic talent when making wooden chairs, tables, and other items. When beautiful woods such as Chestnut, Oak, and Mahogany are used, it's just about impossible not to carve a few extra decorative motifs or to turn the entire piece into a work of art. In addition to adding a decorative touch, artistic furniture makers also love to combine function with beauty. This has resulted in many wonderful furniture items, including handsome gaming tables such as the Walpole Manor Gaming Chess Table. The class and elegance of this functional table turns it into excellent decor whether you happen to play chess or not.

The Saint Thomas Aquinas Gothic Wooden Bookstand is another beautiful work of art that acts as fitting decor for the most distinguished of homes. Modeled after an 18th century antique, this Gothic bookstand is the perfect place to showcase your Gothic objets d'art and favorite tomes. Pair this elegant bookcase with the beautiful Gothic Quatrefoil Console Table. An authentic antique replica of Medieval home decor, this hardwood table would look right at home in the halls of a 15th century castle. Use the quatrefoil embellished drawers to store antique silverware, table dressings, cherished books, or other personal treasures.

Nouveau-Gothic

somenewlanguage from Madison, WI, USA reviewed the Steampunk Skull Containment Vessel

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

Comments: Steampunk may be what all the kids are calling it, but this techno-skull is certainly reminiscent of something much darker. From color to cast, this item pleases to no foreseeable end. As a shelf accouterment or a a table-top focal point, this steam punk skull was a great purchase. While you could store bolts and screws inside the cavity, to complete the genre feel, it's also a great place for keys, dice or other such particulars. Very pleased with this purchase.

The Sudbury Solid Pine Dining TableMedieval home decor adds a regal, storied look to any home, especially when Gothic tables are placed in the dining area, library, or other suitable room. The following are three other reasons for buying magnificent Gothic furniture from Design Toscano:

  • The Sudbury Solid Pine Dining Table: Although many Gothic-themed tables and replicas of antique furniture are hand carved from rich, reddish Mahogany, we dare to state that this rich, golden-colored, solid pine table is just as beautiful. Its full seven foot length and stunning appearance are ideal for hosting regal dinners and its beautiful, hand carved rosettes, laurel bows, and scrolls heighten this uncommon table with Medieval personality.

Add Splendor to the Dining Room with Beautiful French Chairs

Chateau DuMonde Coat of Arms Dining Arm ChairBefore the French Revolution, the aristocracy lived in huge mansions that featured extensive gardens showcasing elegant sculpted fountains and classic Greek garden statues. The beauty of the surrounding gardens was matched on the inside of those mansions with gorgeous hand-carved wooden furniture, exquisite tapestries, and paintings presented in gilded frames. Walking into such homes was probably like entering a museum housing a fantastic collection of objets d'art, antiques, and fine decor in every room. Although rather few people still actually reside in French chateaux, several of those grand old homes have actually been converted into museums that showcase much of the same beautiful furniture and decor that was admired by their original inhabitants.

Chateau furniture in particular looks simply fantastic. Instead of average, everyday chairs or tables, we have furniture that has been hand-carved from rich, beautiful Mahogany. The upholstery itself is a stunning work of art that features coats of arms, Medieval designs, and other heraldic patterns. In short, the furniture looks fit for a king and indeed it had to be just in case members of the royal family paid a visit. While the days of noble visits and aristocracy are long gone, we make it possible to decorate the dining room with the same types of beautiful Medieval French furniture. The Chateau DuMonde Coat of Arms Dining Chairs are exquisite replicas of 17th century furniture that graces the hallways of old, French chateaux. Put a set of these chairs around the table to make you and your guests feel like royalty.

Knight Statues for Your Medieval Collection

The King's Guard Sculptural Half-Scale Knight ReplicaThe days of castles, kings, and jousts are aspects of the distant past but the fantasy, romance, and attractions of the Medieval era live on in some of our favorite movies, books, and a theme park or two. For many of us, we also show our love for Medieval pageantry by decorating the living room with beautiful Gothic tables and haunting Gothic statues. Such breathtaking decor adds serious character to any room and helps turn even the most humble of homes into a fantasy-filled keep. The regal beauty of Medieval decor can also be put on display with exquisite statues of knights in shining armor.

The King's Guard Sculptural Half-Scale Knight Replica will captivate guests with its beautiful, regal details. Modeled after a 16th century museum piece, this elegant statue stands more than three feet tall and is ready to defend the royal family with a fine, two handed sword and beautiful armor emblazoned with golden lions. This is ideal decor for entranceways into a Medieval or Gothic-themed home or room.

Knight statues also act as striking, regal decor for a desk or decorative table. The Fourteenth Century Crusader Knight is an exquisite collectable Medieval statue that features an English knight with a visor that can be flipped up to reveal his carefully painted, lifelike face.

Fantastic Tables for Creative People

The Subservient Dragon Glass-Topped Sculptural TableA person's mindset and character are frequently reflected by the furniture they use. For example, people with very little imagination might opt for a table that is functional and looks nice but doesn't fall outside of their comfort zone. It's more likely to resemble basic, average tables they have used in the past rather than beautiful Gothic tables with ornate carvings and lion's paws at the bases of the legs. Although many a person who happens to be lacking when it comes to imagination could still love such a table, they might need some convincing to buy it. On the other hand, someone with a very creative mind is more likely to go for breathtaking, unique furniture such as the Subservient Dragon Sculptural Glass-topped Table or Bones, the English Butler Pedestal Table.

Another table that fits right in with the creative mind is the unique Nettlestone Library Ensemble. This modern version of European trompe l'oeil furniture is a true, functional work of art. When closed, it resembles a bookcase that houses several interesting tomes. However, open it up and its true nature is revealed, a unique table with two, cushioned barrel chairs! Look beneath those comfortable chairs and you will find hidden compartments and casters to store your favorite books and treasures.

Find unique Medieval furniture and hundreds of excellent Father's Day gift ideas at Design Toscano.

Get great discounts from today until June 7th as part of our Father's Day Tiered Sale:

$20 off orders of $100 to $199

$50 off orders of $200 to $399

$100 off orders of $400 and higher!

How to Know that the Time Has Come to Buy Gothic Tables for Your Home

Lord Raffles Lion Tea TableFurniture can be simply functional or it can be crafted as a functional, artistic object of beauty.

However, someone who would rather also use a table to help decorate a room will find an excellent solution in the form of tables that display an artistic, Gothic touch.

The time has arrived for buying a Gothic table if:

  • You have always wanted a dining or den fit for royalty: Gothic furniture fills any room with a fantastic regal touch by merit of fine, sculpted wood. That noble look is found in stunning pieces like the Effingham Gryphon Library Table. Whether used as a table in the den, library, or dining area, this beautiful, hand-carved mohagany table is a functional work of art that brings a royal touch to the room.

Three Reasons to Buy Egyptian and Gothic Tables

The Lord Raffles Grand Hall Lion Leg Coffee TableFurniture is more than just function. Tables, chairs, and lamps can and should also act as decor. For example, an Egyptian-themed room might look nice with a few statues, an Egyptian urn, and Egyptian-themed paintings but include a sculptural glass-topped table and the room goes from being impressive to simply stunning. The same goes for tables with a Gothic touch. The following are three other reasons for buying Gothic-themed tables:

  • They add a regal touch to the dining room: Furniture like the Lord Raffle's Grand Hall Lion Leg Coffee Table is modeled after antique tables that were used by Victorian era English nobles. The rich colors, quality, and durable nature of this solid Mahogany table make it an heirloom piece that will last for generations while the carved motifs and lion paw legs turn it into fine, functional decor.
  • Gothic furniture combines stunning beauty with function: Given its refined beauty, quality Gothic furniture could easily be used as decor and nothing more. However, our Gothic and Medieval tables were built to last and also be used for elegant dinner parties, as a gorgeous addition to the library, or as impressive private office furniture.
  • They are on sale: One of the other main reasons why it's worth it to order these and other fine tables today is because you will get 20% off the regular price!

Save 20% on fine Gothic furniture, garden statuary, and everything from the Design Toscano site when ordering today until March 31st.

Functional Medieval Home Decor for the Musician

Celtic Rosewood Tara HarpElegant decorations during Medieval times were mostly used by nobility and clergy because they were the only people who could afford beautiful, carved wooden tables, gargoyle figurines, or putting a striking stone garden angel on display. In modern times, we can view those antique works of art in museums and on visits to European castles but also have the chance to buy beautiful replicas for home and office. Some decor also happens to be functional, including classic instruments such as Celtic harps. The angelic sounds of the harp have entertained and mesmerized people for centuries and echoed off the stone hallways of many a European castle and keep. The beauty of the harp is just as apparent when this regal instrument is used as decor as when it is played by skilled hands.

The Celtic Rosewood Heather Harp is a fully functional replica of a 10th century, 22 string harp. This absolutely gorgeous instrument is decorated with traditional motifs, carved from beautiful tropical hardwood, and is wonderful decor for any Medieval or music-themed room. It's also meant to be played and this is why we include pitch shifters, tuning sets, and extra strings. Pair this classic functional decor with the equally stunning 12 string Celtic Rosewood Tara Harp.

Find these quality items and hundreds of beautiful Medieval and Gothic decor at Design Toscano.
