Andrea's Gateleg Demilunes



Honduras mahogany, purpleheart; 42" l x 21" w x 29 1/2" h (folded); 42" round x 29 1/2" h (unfolded)

Andrea–for whom I'd built a dining table and set of chairs twenty-five years before – called me to say she needed more dining space for holidays and other large but occasional soirees. She envisioned two demilunes that could sit against a wall in quiet times, then brought out and unfolded into round tables when the masses descended. I used the same mahogany and purpleheart combination, and other design cues, as I had in her original dining room set.
