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.
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.
What are drop leaf tables? They are tables with a fixed center section on the tabletop, and hinged sections on either side that can be dropped down when the table is not in use. When you raised the hinged sides of the tabletop, they are supported movable gate legs, arms, or brackets.
Dining tables are a permanent fixture to any house. But if you live in a small apartment, it is hard to place a dining set that can fit. The important thing before buying is to be acquainted with various furniture items that can easily be positioned inside your home.
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.
