Dinner tables, coffee tables and even side tables can be seen in pretty much every house nowadays. Did you know there are many, many different types of tables that you can decorate your house or apartment with? Here’s a few for you to consider:
Flip-top table—This is a table that has two leaves, and the leaves are one on top of the other.
Pie-crust table—This is a small, round table having a top with its edge carved or molded in scallops. This type of table is common in 18th-century English furniture.
Gate-leg table—A gate-leg table is a type of table that was first introduced in England in the 16th century. The table top has a fixed section and one or two hinged leaves on the sides. This type of table also has two legs that swing out to hold the leaves up. When the leaves are not in use, the legs fold in and the leaves fold down below the fixed section and hang vertically.
This is just a small sampling of what’s out there. What kinds of tables have you run across or have used?
