Well, obviously alot of what you can buy depends on your budget. Part of your decision should be related to what you use the space for. If the only things happening in that space are meals and other "table" sort of functions, then portability for cleaning the floor is really all you need. If you use that space for other functions like excersize or dance you may want more complete portability to move tables completely out of the way. In this scenario folding legs on tables might be nice. In general I have heard, but not experienced that narrower tables make for more intimate settings. With a standard sized folding table you may be closer to the person behind you than across from you. We bought 40 stacking metal chairs with vinyl padded seats farily inexpensively. The seats on about half a dozen have broken and we seem to have no one interested or able to recover them, although one did get recovered with fabric and is very nice. The metal parts seem to be holding up very well and they do come apart easily for recovering, a nice feature. Stacking chairs are very handy to transport and get out of the way to mop the floor, something we do a couple times a week. ---------- From: cohousing-l [at] freedom.mtn.org on behalf of patty m gourley Sent: Wednesday, July 23, 1997 2:53 PM Subject: common house furniture We are assembling information on tables, chairs, furniture, etc for our common house and need any input you all might have regarding: 1. vendors for tables- folding, stacking, handsome, inexpensive... 2. maybe we should use "collectables" - tables and chairs that we could bring to the dining area. Of course we couldn't fold these up and recover the space for other purposes. Any thoughts on these two sides of the same issue? Groundbreaking is in about 30 days (?) and the common house will be built first. So, we need to start this process and the first part is information gathering.
