ANTIQUE OAK DINING TABLES
With the collapse of the Roman Empire during the 4th—5th centuries, Europe sank into a period in which little furniture, except the most basic, was used: chairs, stools, benches, and primitive chests were the most common items. Several centuries were to pass before the invading Teutonic peoples evolved forms of furniture that approached the Roman standard of domestic equipment.
Comparatively little furniture of the medieval period in Europe has survived, and only a handful of these pieces date from before the end of the 13th century.

Oak is one of the most popular woods used in furniture and flooring in the US. Oak is highly durable, easy to work with, and looks great stained or with a clear, natural finish.
