A folding trestle table is so handy to own. Once you do, you'll wonder how you ever coped without one. So, what exactly can you do with your trestle table? Here are a few ideas.
When your room has one sofa included, one sofa table is an idea accessory. There are nowadays, however, the L shaped sofas which allow for two such tables to be strategically paced behind the two legs of the L shape. When it comes to size, make sure that you get the same length as your own sofa, so you need to first measure your couch carefully. If it's too long, it will stick out and look out of place, whereas if it is too short, the place look like when something is missing from there, not to mention that it's easy to have small accidents due to people not seeing it in the first place!
Large wicker picnic hampers can also work in this way too, although they do not provide a very uniform top surface. They do though look stylish, particularly when aged.
The first step in creating anything new is deciding on a style. I wanted something with a lot of open space that could be viewed from all angles, including the top. Inspiration comes from industrial style building elements and bridge truss structures. My interest is in the structure behind the facade. In many cases that structure looks very interesting but is seldom seen.
Instead of one of these tables, you could use a rectangular or square table for the same purpose. This will give you more table space, but will also extend some sharp points into the room, and will reduce the amount of remaining space in the room.
Probably the best place to put a small table is an entryway or foyer. Half moon tables in these locations provide the maximum amount of maneuverability while still providing significant space to put items on.
