I moved into a small apartment with my girlfriend. Our kitchen features a counter bar with room for four stools. This is where we eat our meals but we want to be able to have larger parties over for dinner around a real table. Given the limited space in the apartment and availability of a dining counter, it's not practical to have a such a large chunk of our floorspace dedicated to a dining table that will seldom be used. Something like this would be perfect, but it's quite expensive. http://www.flipfurniture.com/the_flip_table.html Thanks.
