If you have been thinking of buying some TV Tray tables and are starting to get excited that the days of watching television, while balancing a dinner plate on one knee – are potentially over, then you’ve come to the right place! These handy little, foldable tables will make your relaxing time a lot easier and more enjoyable. They are great for serving dinner or snacks, but also convenient when you need extra space for large family gatherings on holidays or big events. Also, a student’s favorite for setting up their laptop and working on that research paper in between commercial breaks. Not only is it multifunctional, but always a perfect birthday, graduation, or holiday gift for that “hard to shop” for person in your life.
A TV tray table, a TV dinner tray table, or a laptop table can all be relatively similar in that they are all usually some type of smaller, collapsible furniture that functions as an easily portable table.
TV tray tables first became popular in the early 1950s during the times when “TV dinners” became an iconic term and families watched shows together like “American Bandstand” or “I Love Lucy.” National advertising for TV tray tables first appeared in 1952, a full year before Swanson introduced the TV dinner in October 1953.
The actual inventor of TV tray tables is unknown. The original, popular model of TV tables consisted of two pieces: a metal tray with grips mounted on its underside, and a set of tubular metal legs with rubberized tips at the bottom. As times changed, so did construction techniques and design.
Fast forward to today, take a look at our rectangular folding TV tray table. It can be considered a “modern” design, but it has been a customer favorite of over thirty years. It is crafted from sustainable Northeast hardwood at our mill in the Adirondack foothills of New York and built to last for generations. This piece comes in a set of four so no one in the family is left out and we offer a variety of different finishes to be sure to match any type of décor that fits your taste. Our finishes come in golden oak, chestnut, espresso, driftwood grey, and rustic whitewash! For more information on this particular piece, or to purchase, you can visit it here
