Based on a traditional type of Dutch table from the 1700s, HAY’s Tilt Top Table transcends generations by bringing this classic design right up to date.
Due to tight living space, the table was originally designed to fold together to create extra space when packed away. In the same way, the Tilt Top Table functions as a dining table or working area, and can be folded completely flat against the wall when not in use. Ideal for compact space or as a convenient spare table that can easily be stored away.
