If you love the versatility of a drop-leaf table, the Lin Dining Table by Hellman-Chang will make your jaw drop. This ingenious piece is perfect if you’re the hostess for the holidays or entertain lots of guests.

Originally commissioned by a Hellman-Chang customer who wanted a table that could grow from 10 feet to 18 feet, the table slides out gracefully. As a bonus, the interwoven base system’s lines create unique looks when expanded to different lengths (although I think it looks just as stylish at its smallest size). Can’t you just imagine a Thanksgiving buffet spread out on the Lin? The only downside is that it’s so eye-catching, it could upstage the bird entirely.

    This design made my spouse drool. Very, very cool. We're into furniture design that features elements that can expand and contract in size and shape.

    Ah Brilliant idea. I follow you. Indeed why not three sections. I'll mull
    this one over. I could have 4 12 or 18 inch sections perhaps — or whatever
    combination works. Basically it saves having to spread the whole distance at
    one go.

    My jaw! Has dropped! I love this. Last Thanksgiving we had 18 people and 2 kids at our house, and my huge 10-seater Heywood Wakefield table was NOT complimented by the 8-seater plastic folding table next to it.
