Flip Up Table For Sale on 1stDibs

At 1stDibs, there are many versions of the ideal flip up table for your home. A flip up table — often made from wood, metal and hardwood — can elevate any home. If you’re shopping for a flip up table, we have 380 options in-stock, while there are 12 modern editions to choose from as well. Your living room may not be complete without a flip up table — find older editions for sale from the 18th Century and newer versions made as recently as the 21st Century. A flip up table, designed in the mid-century modern, Scandinavian Modern or Victorian style, is generally a popular piece of furniture. You’ll likely find more than one flip up table that is appealing in its simplicity, but Peter Løvig Nielsen, Jens Harald Quistgaard and Dyrlund produced versions that are worth a look.

Finding the Right tables for You

The right vintage, new or antique tables can help make any space in your home stand out.

Over the years, the variety of tables available to us, as well as our specific needs for said tables, has broadened. Today, with all manner of these must-have furnishings differing in shape, material and style, any dining room table can shine just as brightly as the guests who gather around it.

Remember, when shopping for a dining table, it must fit your dining area, and you need to account for space around the table too — think outside the box, as an oval dining table may work for tighter spaces. Alternatively, if you’ve got the room, a Regency-style dining table can elevate any formal occasion at mealtime.

Innovative furniture makers and designers have also redefined what a table can be. Whether it’s an unconventional Ping-Pong table, a brass side table to display your treasured collectibles or a Louis Vuitton steamer trunk to add an air of nostalgia to your loft, your table can say a lot about you.

The visionary work of French designer Xavier Lavergne, for example, includes tables that draw on the forms of celestial bodies as often as they do aquatic creatures or fossils. Elsewhere, Italian architect Gae Aulenti, who looked to Roman architecture in crafting her stately Jumbo coffee table, created clever glass-topped mobile coffee tables that move on bicycle tires or sculpted wood wheels for Fontana Arte

Coffee and cocktail tables can serve as a room’s centerpiece with attention-grabbing details and colors. Glass varieties will keep your hardwood flooring and dazzling area rugs on display, while a marble or stone coffee table in a modern interior can showcase your prized art books and decorative objects. A unique vintage desk or writing table can bring sophistication and even a bit of spice to your work life. 

No matter your desired form or function, a quality table for your living space is a sound investment. On 1stDibs, browse a collection of vintage, new and antique bedside tables, mid-century end tables and more .

  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 31, 2023
