Demi-Lune

Definition: Demi-Lune

undefined

We can thank the French for much of our decor vocabulary. The word "demi-lune" means "half moon" en Français. It's used to described the hemisphere-shaped tables you've come to know as "console" tables, which are designed to stand against a wall. Of course, consoles come in all shapes and sizes; a demi-lune is just a particular breed. Its feminine curves give it a more formal look, but really it's suitable for any home. And, since its tabletop has a smaller surface area than a rectangular console table, it's ideal for small spaces. Do you have a demi-lune?

i do! we've always had a bunch of antique "demi-lunes" (didn't know they were called that, but I love it!) floating around our family. Mine is at the end of my hall under my great-grandmother's mirror that my nana handpainted. Love it.

No, we don't have a console table of any kind right now. Working on that for the new place... about 6 weeks to go until we move!God I love that table. There is no way in hell my husband will let me get away with that though.
