To facilitate storage, some bases are available with flip top mechanisms to allow the top to fold down (taking less room) and often the base plate design, allows the tables to nest together neatly like shown. Often the bases are for outdoor use, allowing tables to be stored in
- Stone tops should not be used with
fliptop, stacking or folding bases, as they are delicate and heavy to more
- Bases with small folding mechanisms should not be paired with heavy tops, as they require greater fixing surface to keep the 2 parts together.
Insteadchoose a base with a large spider mechanism such as the Avangard or Equix above. Learn more about heavy tops and flip top table bases here.
Some four-legged tables will also stack taking less room, like the below examples.
