Trestle Table Hunt

August 23, 2012

Hey everyone, I’m feeling much more rested today, funny how a 10 hour sleep can do that for you!  So I mentioned we were on the hunt for a trestle table and I’ve been looking around for months.  After spying this beauty in a shop in Montreal, I’m completely fixated on this style to replace our old traditional table in our dining room.

Many of you offered up some suggestions, thanks so much!  I’ve looked at this Chianni table by Ballard Designs in Belgian Oak. chianni trestle ballard

At $1,189 plus shipping and tax, it’s a really great price, bonus that there’s an expansion leaf but I’m leaning toward a fixed length.  Plus when you zoom in it looks like the brackets are visible from the side?   A minor detail, but that one bothers me a bit.  And it’s only 36” wide which seems a little skinny to me.

Who doesn’t love the RH Trestle, hello gorgeous, but double what I’m willing to spend at $2,995 plus shipping.

Cottage Home Maine makes custom trestle tables for you in any stain you wish, prices begin at $1,950 but the one I want costs $2,500.

Here’s a beautiful rustic piece by Kathy Kuo Home but too long for my space and expensive at $3,122.

Then there is the Provence table at World Market and a really great deal at $529!

I’m not so crazy about the thinner trestle leg and when I went to inspect it last month with my little monkeys I found the top to be a little rough to the touch.

Reader find!  This Cameron table by Ethan Allen is $1,799 but on sale in August for $1,599 – at 86” it’s bigger than my maximum length of 7 feet but the mushroom finish with white glaze is gorgeous!

This trestle table from Zin Home is more affordable option at $1,450 but there’s a little peg at the bottom of the leg I’m not fond of.  I’m so picky! belmont trestle zin home


This one is my favorite online find so far, the vintage salvaged trestle at DCG Stores for $1,208 plus free shipping!  It is the perfect length and width and has those gorgeous carved legs.

Here’s a room shot:

It has that whole rustic casual Wine Countryish feel to it that I’m going for.

Have you ever ordered a major piece of furniture like this online?  Were you nervous?  I’m usually one of those ‘gotta inspect it first’ people but ready to order this one with its satisfaction guarantee.    Decisions decisions!
