Johnson Furniture may not be the first to create expanding tables, but they most certainly refined the idea. George was inspired by the work of Robert Jupe, who made the first expanding circular dining tables some time during the 1830’s. He’s created a table where the expansion leaves are stored within the body of the table, and rise up automatically as it rotates. Read more for a video of one of them in-action.
The tables feature a unique unfolding star shape that allows for a compact mechanism with a large range of table sizes. How much do they cost? Well, if you want a 6-8 person expanding table, it will cost you anywhere between $12,400 – $14,300 and that’s before any shipping or applicable taxes.
