Drop-Leaf Table:

A drop-leaf table is a table that includes panels, or leafs, on the sides of the main fixed section that can be propped up for use, or let down when not in use.  This type of table is very efficient for small spaces.

Drop-leaf tables provide great function in tight quarters.  As the tiny home movement continues to gain steam, versatile pieces like the drop-leaf table are becoming even more popular.  Fortunately, the design of drop-leaf tables has come a long way.  They can now be purchased in a variety of styles – from traditional to contemporary, there is sure to be one that fits your taste.

Here are a few examples of drop-leaf tables:
