vveh. Dining Tables. September 12th , 2017.
On most days, Mom`s dining room table was pushed up against the wall; it projected less than two feet into the room. If we needed a little more space-for homework or a craft project-we would lift one side and slide the movable table legs to support the tabletop. Clear off the table when we were done, drop the side, and the dining room would have a clear passageway again.
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.
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.
Selection of the ideal dining table design for your home depends on the decorating ideas implemented in your home and the space available. For example if you have less space, then drop leaf or folding dining table can be a perfect fit. With folding tables you have the added advantage of folding them and keeping them aside in a store or anywhere else to increase the empty space in the room where the table is usually placed. Similarly, drop leaf table also reduces the space covered by the table, hence, offering you an easy way to increase the space after meals.
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.
