The word 'table' is a noun, (table, tables) and a verb (table, tables, tabling, tabled).

The noun 'table' is a word for a piece of furniture; a word for an orderly arrangement of facts or figures in rows or columns for quick reference; a word for a thing.

The word 'table' is not an adjective but can be used to describe a noun. A noun used to describe another noun is called an attributive noun or a noun adjunct; for example a table setting or a table leg.
