table,

article of furniture employed for household or ecclesiastical purposes. Elaborately decorated tables of wood or metal were known in ancient Egypt and Assyria, and the Greeks used small tables of low construction to be placed beside a couch. During the Roman Empire massive rectangular pieces were developed, which were made of marble and supported by carved end slabs as well as square or circular forms of bronze supported on a pedestal or on legs often representing wild beasts, sphinxes, or other figures. Although small tables of various shapes, some covered with precious metals, were used during the Middle Ages, the most common form was the long trestle table that was disassembled and removed after meals. Tables of the Italian and Spanish Renaissance were rectangular with end supports braced by stretchers; they often had an arcade of columns through the center. The magnificent Farnese table of marble inlay, attributed to Vignola (Metropolitan Museum of Art), is a notable piece from this period. Tables of the Elizabethan Age were supported on bulbous legs and included the draw table, forerunner of the extension dining table. By the end of the 17th cent. the console, the gateleg, and a variety of occasional tables had come into use. Striking tables of modern workmanship include elegant, simple designs in glass and chromium or stainless steel, and in a great variety of unvarnished woods. Tables vary in size with their purpose from the smallest candlestand to the great banquet table. They are named according to the place for which they are intended (center, library, side, sofa, tavern), their use (tea, china, drawing, writing, sewing, billiard, dining), their form (folding, console, extension, parson's trestle or sawhorse, piecrust, gateleg, butterfly, drop-leaf, tilt-top, nest), period or style (Gothic, Queen Anne, Empire), or the names of designers who created distinctive types (Adam, Chippendale, Hepplewhite, Sheraton, or Phyfe).

Table

Applied generally to all horizontal bands of moldings, base moldings, and cornices.

What does it mean when you dream about a table?

Tables usually represent social functions, such as dining together at a table, though tables can also represent work if one has a desk job or a job where one crafts objects on a table, for example. Tables in dreams can draw on meanings associated with the “head of the table,” “a bare table,” “the tables are turned,” being paid “under the table,” or “on the table.”

Table

(dreams)
A table suggests assimilation, or the “coming together” of varying parts of the dreamer. It could be that you are working on becoming aware of your own multi-dimensional nature and are attempting to become a more harmonious individual. The table usually represents nourishment, friendship, and unity. When interpreting this dream consider the primary function of the table in the dream as well as its shape and those who have gathered around it. Most people can make many associations with this piece of furniture. It could represent emotionally charged events, such as a family dinner, contractual negotiations, or pleasant/unpleasant meetings. The emotional reactions to the situation in this dream will lead you to its interpretation.
