Our apartment is very small, and we'd love one of the big drop-leaf tables you occasionally see in old, dusty houses. These tables have enormous leaves that fall almost to the floor, and, when closed, are only six inches to a foot wide. They seat six comfortably with both leaves up, but, because the leaves are rectangular, they seat two very nicely with only one leaf up. Josh
The type of drop leaf table Josh is looking for is an excellent solution for small apartments, and we have seen them only as antiques or as the less attractive modern versions at Gothic Cabinet Craft. Josh also mentions this one at Koo de Kir, which is similar.
We don't have a silver bullet here, but would Google among the Vermont furniture mafia ("vermont furniture") as well as "shaker furniture" and surf eBay to start. We would also image Google "drop leaf tables" to see where that leads.
If you have any ideas, please comment below.... (Thanks, Josh!) MGR
