Now earlier in this series we talked about folding chairs, admittedly in a slightly high concept kind of fashion, so here is its partner; the folding table. This is an original old Indian one, which is rather beautiful and would be perfect on my covered deck (see Mad About Outdoor Living Rooms) but in the meantime, a folding table is perfect for taking outside when the weather’s unexpectedly good, for extra guests, Christmas, parties and all that sort of thing.

I don’t have one this big, but I do have a rather useful vintage folding card table, which came from ebay, and which has done sterling work when it comes to board games or as an extra table for children when the adults want to slosh wine about and the kids want to get down and run off. 

This one is very big at 173cm long but given that you could store it under a bed or behind the sofa it’s a good thing to bear in mind, if you come across one.

    This is far more beautiful than anything that comes to mind when I think “folding table”!

      Well yes it is quite special isn’t it. I love that it’s called an event table, which is, I suppose, usually when you need something like this.

    I’d love to have a long folding table like this in my office. At the moment I have a sofa bed which is covered in papers, magazines, press releases and more; a table would be much more suitable but then I’d have no space for guests.

      Well you could have this and then fold it up and tuck it behind the sofa bed when the guests came … or you need to have either the Tre Table or the Cabrio from this post (the first or the last)
