Dining Tables. Friday , September 29th , 2017 - 07:10:41 AM
These come in round, square, rectangle, and oval shapes. This makes it easier to find the perfect fit for your space. A large room can easily accommodate a large rectangle table with six to eight chairs. However, if you live in an apartment or town house with a small area your best choice might be a drop leaf dining table. The benefit of this table is that with the leaf out or turned down you have more space for walking around the table. One style that works well for those with a serious space issue is a wall mounted drop leaf table. When this is not in use it only extends a few inches from the wall.
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.
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.
