Frequently Asked Questions

What is a drop leaf dining table and how does it work?

Derived from the classic gateleg table design, drop leaf tables have one fixed table top section and typically one or two hinged surfaces. When lifted into place, these hinged sections extend the table top; a drop leaf dining room table will typically have a square or rectangular top shape. If the leaves are supported by brackets, it is simply a drop-leaf table. If the leaves are supported by a set of legs that swing out, it would be called a gate leg table.
