Décor Dictionary: Demilune

A pretty contemporary 3-leg demilune table on the left and on the right a 4-leg demilune with a drop-leaf top. The drop-leaf rests on top of its half-moon counterpart and flips open to rest on hidden or swing-out legs to form a full circle table.

Demilune:   (or demi-lune) is a French term (meaning “half-moon”) referring to a semi-circular wall table in the console family. A typical demilune table has three to four legs. Some traditional demilune tables have a drop-leaf top and pull out legs that open the tabletop into a full circle – these are often used as card tables.
