Drop Leaf Tables

Drop leaf tables come in very handy for people with limited space in their home. For many of us, the experience of hosting large groups only happens infrequently and so handing over space to an 8 or 10-seater dining table is nonsensical for the majority of the year. Whether you want to conserve space in your kitchen–diner or even in a dedicated dining room, a drop leaf table could be the perfect solution. Drop leaf tables come in different shapes and sizes – ranging from side extensions to gate leg tables with multiple formats, where you can fold them in half or attach to interlocking tables.

Why buy drop leaf tables

Drop leaf tables, also known as gate leg tables, first emerged into the market in the 18th century. The first drop leaf tables were made from mahogany and had either one long drawer or two short drawers. The tables had tapered or turned legs. The drop leaf table came in handy for people with limited space in those early days, just as they do now. Indeed, in modern apartments where space is at a premium, the drop leaf table is particularly possible – be it as the centrepiece of a kitchen–diner or up against a wall for casual eating. Often drop leaf tables also double us as side tables, drinks tables and even work spaces – particularly in houses or apartments where you might wish to work remotely from time to time but can’t justify a home office with a dedicated desk. Drop leaf tables come in different sizes, shapes and makes. Today they serve even more purposes than they did in the past. They make great end tables, and flanks for sofas. They are great for intimate dinners too.
