We were clued in
to the existence of Xiaoping Design's gorgeous lacquered demi-lune tables by reader City Dwelling Chilanga Mama
We like the Moon Table's Minimalist/Chinese look and the lovely lacquer finish. But the reason we're blogging it is actually because of the shape. As kristian pointed out, the half-moon top makes this table perfect for flexible use: either against a wall as a console, or flush with another moon table to make a circular dining table. (You'd need storage space for the other half however; so if you're a small space dweller this might not be the fold-up dining room you've been looking for.)
All the pieces in Xiaoping Design's Red collection
come in a an array of luscious lacquer finishes - so you can go for the classic red or opt for black, natural, apricot, dark espresso, ivory, olive green, or mahogany.
The Moon Table is viewable here and can be ordered by phone from Xiaoping's showroom in NY: 877.xaoping for $795.
