Form and Function

photo 1Demi-lune tables have been a functional and decorative solution for centuries.  They are perfect for places where you want a table to anchor a limited space or set things on but have to turn a corner.  In the UK and Europe they were often used in small places for their chic decorative value and for their functional value to pull out and play games or even dine on.  As a pair they provide symmetry and can be pulled to get her as a center table when needed.
