Nowadays the tables stretchers play a less familiar or social role than before becoming a more functional complement for certain spaces of the house like living rooms and dining rooms.
Where does the stretcher table come from?
The stretcher table is not a Spanish invention, however much it may seem. ; You could say that it is a universal invention. Its origin comes, probably, from the Middle Ages in Europe where the "taula"Covered with a mantelón. Large boards were used arranged in the spaces in such a way that they served to show the viands. But these mediaeval taulas were impossible to transport with which they began to use boards more coarse and less luxurious and, in order not to let the simplicity of these tables, they adorned themselves by covering them with mantelones. From here comes the expression "dress the table".
In addition, considering these castles or halls of the Medieval, impossible to heat in times of cold, the tables were brought to the fire as much as possible appearing, over time, infiernillos or braziers that the servants placed at the feet of their masters, under the taulas and covered with the mantelones.
The mantelones thus go from decking to giving comfort. You move from the dining table to other more simple and practical tables with many uses such as reading, sewing and meeting. It was the only source of heat, apart from the fire in the hearth, which soon became the center of the house's life. Its use perfects and popularizes them since, in addition, they are very cheap and easy to construct.
Therefore, today, table tables return to that concept of the beautifying Medieval being widely used in restaurants, hotels and, of course, in homes, giving the environments a decorative and comfortable touch at the same time, fast and accessible way.
