Drop Leaf Dining Tables at Mom`s House. When my mother got married, she outfitted her home with a complete coordinated set of furniture-a matched master bedroom set, a cocktail table and end tables, a desk for my dad. But the pride and joy of her home was her dining room table. It was Colonial style, pine with a maple finish, and round, 70 inches across. It came with a leaf that would make it oval, and it was easy to seat twelve guests for Thanksgiving dinner.
Table designs allow them to be a multi-purpose piece of furniture. If you cover the top to protect the surface it can serve as a craft table. It makes a good place for playing family board games and works well as a homework station.
Table designs come in different shapes like rectangle, square, round and oval making it easier for you to select the table that will fit perfectly in your dining room. If you`re space in your living room is not limited then you buy yourself a nice large rectangle table, usually with 6 - 8 chairs. On the end, if you`re space is small or for example you live in a 35 sqm condo unit, you might want to consider buying a leaf dining table. There are even wall mounted drop leaf table if you`re space is really too small for a large 6- seater table.
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.
