Use Stools to Keep Things Tidy
This counter dining table with drop leaf comes with 4 stools and a very convenient tidying option. For rooms with limited space, not having to navigate around chairs can be very helpful. Excellent for those who hate clutter.

Gorgeous polished hardwood with a very elegant pedestal – and the detail in the feet is fantastic. The bevelled table top also adds a sophisticated touch.
10inch drop leaves on either side can reduce the width to just 22 inches, making this a very convenient and classy addition to your abode.
