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.
The drop-leaf design has not been lost on today`s furniture designers. For people who live in apartment and condos and who like to entertain, the drop leaf table provides an excellent solution for a dining room table in a limited amount of space. You can find a variety of drop leaf tables-bar-height or standard size--that you can place at the end of a galley, and turn a small space into an eat-in kitchen. Some drop leaf tables even have storage space for folding chairs built into the base.
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.
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.
Generally, dining tables can cater up to 4 to 6 persons as per requirements, but if you have requirement of more or less than the usual versions, go for a custom-made table made exactly as per your specification. This will make the table more suited for your particular needs and conserve space in the room.
