Because of its unique shape -- demilune is French for "half moon" -- this sophisticated little table makes a big impression. It can be used in the foyer as a place to drop your mail and keys or serve as an intimate spot for morning coffee. If you can, buy a pair: Let the two flank a fireplace or a doorway to add symmetry to a larger room. Look for well-crafted, solid-wood construction but don?t overlook a great vintage piece that has a minor flaw or two. Since it fits snugly against the wall, a demilune is perfect for a small eat-in kitchen.
