A drop leaf coffee table is a handy way to expand the use of your living room or even a hallway space. They come in all sorts of designs from a polished rustic number resembling frontier rude benches to sleek English classic tea tables. The shapes are varied as well. While the folded shape will almost always be a long rectangle, when the sides are unfolded, the table might become a wide rectangle or even oval. In all cases, you can be sure of a style that will charm and display your excellent taste.
