Oasis Concepts
Folding Kitchen Islands

This entire table folds to just 5 inches wide for storage, and is one of the best home products we’ve seen this year. No matter how big or small or a space one lives in, when it’s time to entertain, you always need more space—to carve, to set up a bar or beverage cart, for a dessert station, or as more counter space for food prep. These high-quality tables come with different fittings, including a wine rack, and can be used indoors or outside. It stows away neatly when it isn’t needed, or it can be part of your permanent fixturing.
