Pop up coffee table became especially popular in the last century due to the same type of high-rise buildings — apartments in these houses do not have enough space for the free placement of the furniture, that’s why you need to save it. However, the feast is often arranged on holidays, and a folding dining table is just necessary for owners.
There are various designs of folding tables. Pop up coffee table assumes a stationary tabletop (which is a base table, steady frame, and place for shelves and so on). Also there are two movable retractable legs, that are mounted on the usual loops laid out and either propped up, or fixed in one position of special mechanisms.
Not always, however, the pop up coffee table is a stationary tabletop and technical team with shelves or drawers: in case the space in the apartment is very small, and the table is stored for more headroom furniture, you can buy a model in which there are only two countertops, and folded thickness thereof is 9 cm.
Pop up coffee table suggests that in the unfolded state «wings» rest against the table legs. There may be two or four legs (mounted at an angle and sliding in a circle), they can be flat timber, with or without webs. Usually there is a lock on the inside of the rising tops — wooden «step» or pin that locks the foot in the same position.
The main advantage of this type of furniture is its versatility: in a closed form, it can act as an additional horizontal surface, side tables, coffee tables, and in the open — the dining table, the cutting of fabric, drafting work.
Also it’s not necessary to open the table completely — only one «wing» can be opened. As such, it becomes a comfortable desk — a place on the drop down enough tabletop hobby or homework.
A variety of design of pop up coffee tables allows not just to fold it and push for a cabinet or put on the balcony, but also to place some things on them.
