What is the most expensive table in the world?


When furnishings are made more to be admired as works of art than a place of having actual function, it can become very difficult very quickly to determine which would be the most expensive. And while this table, the world’s most expensive, isn’t actually designated as art, it’s ornate construction and stunning beauty defies anyone to call it anything else.

The world’s most expensive table was constructed by Thomas Tuft, and so is named The Tuft pier table. Tuft hand-carved the table in the 1700s after being requested to do so by Richard Edwards, who lived in New Jersey and owned a general store. The table is done in a Rococo style which has been recognized for years as one of the finest styles in art and interior design. This style prefers looks over practicality and a stunning look over functionality.

The world’s most expensive table has a beautiful mahogany finish with a narrow table surface and long, skinny legs that end in ball-and-claw feet. Between the legs and running along the length of the table is beautiful, intricate network that when examined, is amazing to think that it was all done by hand! The original owner, Richard Edwards, eventually sold the now-antique table to his descendent, Samuel Harrison Gardiner, who was an architect.

Before being sold at auction, it was estimated to garner sales of approximately $3 million but it outdid everyone’s expectations, selling for $4.6 million! The table was sold on January 20, 1990 and it still remains the world’s most expensive table.
