The folddown table shown here is 8 feet long and 4 feet wide. Of course, it may be made longer if you have more wall space available. The handy part is - once you're through playing -the shelf may be folded up against the wall where it's out of the way.

On the decking she has placed a bed with a headboard of gray steel - the only thing in the room - so that it overlooks the 40-foot deck right outside the windows. "The grayed look is a wonderful contrast to the bright colors that are normally used in Florida," she says. People are no longer interested in having a lot of meaningless rooms with expensive furnishings that are carbon copies of what everyone else has, she says. They can have a total environment in decorating by using structural means. Any money left over can be used for paintings, sculptures and plants. Young people, especially, welcome the idea, but older people "who are with it" also like the structural theme. In her two-bedroom, two-bath rental apartment she tore out a wall with the landlord's permission, because "our family was not accustomed to living in such close quarters." Without that wall she can have a large area when she wants to entertain, and it can be closed off with the storage units when she doesn't need to use it. She uses platform seating covered with sisal, which she also uses on the walls, and there are a lot of mirrors. The whole concept is to focus on the windows with the special view of the city from the 37th floor. She completely renovated a 100-year-old home "in terms of architecture" for the well-traveled owners, who are collectors. The addition of wood, fabrics and handicrafts turned each room into a showcase of a country to accommodate their treasurers. A library was done in Tudor, a dining room resembled one in a French chateau, a pool room was a London import. "The house now looks like a travelog of the owners' lives. It has more meaning than if they had just purchased furniture of the period," she maintains. AP Newsfeatures Writer In an effort to find alternatives to expensive furniture for her clients by resorting to cabinetry and built-in furniture, interior designer Yvette Gervey of New York has developed a number of structural ploys. Some could even be do-it-yourself projects. She raises floors, adds storage walls, conceals beds in walls and builds in sofas and chairs to provide a look of individuality. What's more, it has been done within the framework of "you can take it with you" when you move. People have often been reluctant to go the built-in route because the investment would be a financial loss if the home is rented or if it is to be sold eventually. "Originally, I designed moveable storage wall units for my own rented apartment. They are shelves set within frames that can be used individually or hinged together to make a complete wall to lengthen an L-shaped room or to be placed in front of a wall," she says. She uses such units as music centers (they are deep enough for television) or for storage, covering the plywood frames with suede cloth. She has hung graphics in front of the open shelves. Although Mrs. .Gervey doesn't have a background in architecture, she works with architects on her ideas and is involved with a cabinet shop that builds various objects to her specifications. In one guest room she put a standard Murphy bed into an alcove, building the wall out on either side slightly, making her own structure by covering plywood with canvas. The bed is lowered by pressing a button which reveals bookcases within the alcove. It, too, can be easily moved to another home. At the moment, Mrs. Gervey is working on a condominium bedroom in Florida, where she has placed modules of redwood decking, which has been weathered gray, over the We think its a shame that so many people who can afford the monthly payments on a home of their own, are prevented from buying one by down payments the size of Mount Everest. That's why at The Forest, we've gotten the down payment really down. To a size that even newly-marrieds and young families can handle. This means that with just 5rc down as little as $1,765 you can buy one of the most beautiful homes on the market. A 2 or 3 bedroom home priced from as low as $26,000 but designed with the architectural excitement of a much more expensive home. From the outside, die homes of The Forest look like California-style mansions. Inside, they're actually four completely separate condominium villas, with a choice of single-level, townhouse or penthouse styles. everything you need for luxury living: Wall to wall carpeting, central air and heating, frost-free refrigeratorfreezer, garbage disposal to mention just a sampling.
