Changes in social habits, industrial development brought many changes in the look of furniture and tables as well. Early tables, made by Egyptians and Chinese, were platforms of stone used only to put something on them (not to sit around) or to practise writing or painting (in the second case). Greeks and Romans used their tables for eating so as monk's in Middle Ages. But in this period tables weren't popular. Mostly made of wood, designed only for aristocracy, kings, queens and of course for monk's.
There were four-legged, big, heavy and rectangular oak tables in monasteries which served gatherings and eating. This usage left during the centuries and tables become more popular. And in 17th century, as it was common to eat in the dining rooms, tables had to change their shapes. They started to be smaller and more comfortable, oval and round. In the same time appeared three legged tables. Next age brought a totally new usage of tables - they became a place of work for women who sewed.
