Antique Work Table For Sale on 1stDibs

At 1stDibs, there are many versions of the ideal antique work table for your home. Each antique work table for sale was constructed with extraordinary care, often using wood, metal and iron. If you’re shopping for an antique work table, we have 453 options in-stock, while there are 4 modern editions to choose from as well. There are many kinds of the antique work table you’re looking for, from those produced as long ago as the 18th Century to those made as recently as the 21st Century. An antique work table made by Industrial designers — as well as those associated with Victorian — is very popular. Many designers have produced at least one well-made antique work table over the years, but those crafted by Dietzgen, Ken Petersen and Keuffel and Esser Co. are often thought to be among the most beautiful.

How Much is a Antique Work Table?

The average selling price for an antique work table at 1stDibs is $2,700, while they’re typically $120 on the low end and $38,500 for the highest priced.

Finding the Right Tables for You

The right vintage, new or antique tables can help make any space in your home stand out.

Over the years, the variety of tables available to us, as well as our specific needs for said tables, has broadened. Today, with all manner of these must-have furnishings differing in shape, material and style, any dining room table can shine just as brightly as the guests who gather around it.

Remember, when shopping for a dining table, it must fit your dining area, and you need to account for space around the table too — think outside the box, as an oval dining table may work for tighter spaces. Alternatively, if you’ve got the room, a Regency-style dining table can elevate any formal occasion at mealtime.

Innovative furniture makers and designers have also redefined what a table can be. Whether it’s an unconventional Ping-Pong table, a brass side table to display your treasured collectibles or a Louis Vuitton steamer trunk to add an air of nostalgia to your loft, your table can say a lot about you. The visionary work of French designer Xavier Lavergne, for example, includes tables that draw on the forms of celestial bodies as often as they do aquatic creatures or fossils. Elsewhere, Italian architect Gae Aulenti, who looked to Roman architecture in crafting her stately Jumbo coffee table, created clever glass-topped mobile coffee tables that move on bicycle tires or sculpted wood wheels for Fontana Arte

Coffee and cocktail tables can serve as a room’s centerpiece with attention-grabbing details and colors. Glass varieties will keep your hardwood flooring and dazzling area rugs on display, while a marble or stone coffee table in a modern interior can showcase your prized art books and decorative objects. A unique vintage desk or writing table can bring sophistication and even a bit of spice to your work life. 

No matter your desired form or function, a quality table for your living space is a sound investment. On 1stDibs, browse a collection of vintage, new and antique bedside tables, mid-century end tables and more today.
