When stylized, the clear shape of a circle is preserved, even though the edges can be clouded with foliage, twists and other constructions. A typical demilune console table has 3-4 legs depending on the design. Depending on the design, a demilune table can also include storage space, in the form of drawers, shelves, or both and.

When choosing a demilune console table, think about how it will work with your interior. You should also carefully examine the table to ensure that it is stable and securely built. Look for strong joints that are reinforced with studs or screws, and try to avoid tables that are just glued together, as the glue may fail. You may also want to examine the back of the demilune table, as veneer and particle board are often used as trim in areas that furniture companies think consumers will not see.
