We never lived in a large house, so how did this grand piece of furniture find a place within our modest home? Mom had some foresight, and when it was time to pick furniture, she chose a drop table that gave her exactly the seating she was looking for but with built-in features that made it ideal for a home that might have limited space.
Dining Table Design Guide. Having a meal three times a day is one of the basic necessities of life. As time in our lives is becoming more and more crucial, small habits like eating and having a proper meal have become a lifestyle decision. For this reason special emphasis is placed on buying the perfect dining table for the house.
It`s not surprising that an Early American furniture suite would include drop leaf tables. The design dates back to sixteenth century England. The design remains in use today for dining tables, sofa tables, and end tables. A special design for drop leaf tables-a tripod table-is has three legs, and the round table top has three hinged sides. Drop the three hinged sides, and the round table top converts to a triangle, and it can squeeze into a tight corner. With a similar design, a secretary desk with an drop leaf top provides a full-size desktop when necessary, and then can be folded down to accommodate a tight passageway.
These come in square, round, oval and rectangle shapes. It makes it easier to discover the best fit for your room. Easily a big room can accommodate a big rectangle table with six or eight chairs. Nonetheless, if you live in a town house or an apartment with a small space your best options should be the drop leaf dining table. Obviously, the advantage of the table is that you may have more place for walking around with the leaf turned down or out. One style which works well for the room with a serious space concern is the wall mounted drop leaf table. While it is not being used, it just extends several inches from the wall.
