Check out the many selection of drop leaf table with storage in our Storage Ideas for Small Spaces Store.
A drop leaf table with storage would also make sense, as would folding or stacking chairs for small space. Not all halls are small. Some have actually got the space to double as an extra room. In the picture on for instance a large hall doubles as a dining room, with the help of floor-to-ceiling storage which keeps hats and coats out of sight as well as accommodating china and table linen etc. But even a smaller hall could double for dining if you teamed a narrow table with benches that could tuck under the table when not in use.
In small apartments drop leaf kitchen table and chair sets can be a real lifesaver. If you get models with a side drop leaf, you can scoot the table right up against the wall and only pull it out when you need additional seating. You can also get models that have a storage space below that holds two matching folding chairs – the perfect space saving
