What’s in Scaramanga’s Vintage Table Collection?
Some of our favourite pieces are our vintage metal folding tables, which are comprised of a sturdy iron frame, folding legs and a tropical hardwood top. We sell these tables in a variety of styles to suit our colour-loving customers such as spring-green, teal-blue and baby-pink and for our industrial-chic customers we have rustic metal frames with plain hardwood tops. One of the most beneficial features of our metal folding tables is the fact that they fold up, making them perfect for bars and restaurants as they are easily transported and stored whilst remaining sturdy and stylish.
Where did our Metal Folding Vintage Tables come from?
Our Vintage metal folding tables have a lovely rustic charm to them because they’ve lived a long life. They were originally used as wedding tables in India, where they would have been covered in beautiful materials and decorated with flowers and ornate candles. These would have been used year in, year out and repainted again and again as the paint faded. Sometimes the tables would be repainted a different colour meaning that some of our vintage folding tables have notes of red, blue and green as each old layer of paint seeps through, making each one totally unique. We love the fact that there is so much history engrained into our vintage folding tables and yet they remain incredibly strong and durable.

What’s in our Unique Collection of Vintage Tables?
Over the years at Scaramanga we have curated an incredibly unique selection of vintage tables that will add character to any home and make great conversational pieces. One of our most unique tables is our Antique Naga Wooden Grinding Table which was made in the early 1900s by the Naga tribes of remote North East India. This piece was made out of a single hardwood timber log, giving it has a rich, dark brown patina to it. Originally, this grinding table was used for, you guessed it, grinding down grains! The Naga tribe would place grains in the three central holes and use large wooden poles to grind the grains into powder. When we first came across this piece, the sides were curved upwards so we decided to level it out so it could be used as a coffee table. At Scaramanga, we value the fascinating history within all of our pieces as we know there is nothing better than buying a totally unique piece. We believe that giving old, un-used furniture a new lease of life is the best approach to buying and providing our customers with genuine, great quality antiques.
What’s in our Upcycled Vintage Tables Collection?
At Scaramanga, we love to upcycle. It’s as a great method to help save the planet and offer our customers pre-loved, unique goods.
One of our most innovative and impressive upcycled tables is our Vintage Vaulting Horse table. We saw a lot of potential in the old Vault Horse as it was in great condition, so we commissioned this piece as part of our limited-edition range of upcycled furniture. We used the lower sections of the classic gym horse and topped it off with thick reclaimed tropical hardwood to create an extremely unique dining table. Better yet, the sections of the horse can be removed meaning the height can be adjusted.
