Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! It’s our favorite time of the year! Temperatures are dropping (well, sort of), the grocery stores are buzzing and everyone is busy getting their dining tables ready for a feast! It’s that special time before year’s end to spend with family and friends, to give thanks, to raise our glasses together in a toast, and share some fantastic meals – but it’s also the perfect time to have some fun with your home decor! Whether you’re going for a rustic, traditional, or contemporary look, inspiration for holiday decorating can come from all over, but the basis for every great holiday gathering is most certainly a beautiful table.

Country French Table de Fete – photo by Gilles Trillard.

The raw look of a beautiful farm table is a great way to bring a rustic feel to the holidays with lots of room to play with centerpieces.

French 19th Century Walnut Farm Table



This marvelous farm showcases a gorgeous solid walnut top in deep brown with honey tones all over. A handsomely hand painted cherry wood provides a strong, sturdy base.


Antique Solid Oak “Versailles” Parquet Top Farm Table



The hard, raw look of this table is hard to come by and absolutely to die for. A classic, 18th Century pattern on top of saw horse style legs.



Having a small gathering? Consider a round table. A smaller gathering space will create a more intimate setting for you and your guests. 

Art Deco Period Walnut Center Table from France


Simple, elegant, clean, and sophisticated. This beautiful Art Deco table needs so little dressing up. Dinner for 4 is a quick fix with a neat little centerpiece and some traditional holiday fixings.



Rare Modernist Travertine Dining Table from Italy



 Going a bit more on the modern side, a hexagonal travertine table is sure to impress any holiday visitors. With room enough to seat a small  party, pull up some chairs, and dinner is served with a side of style.

So whether you’re serving up a feast, or just having a couple of friends over for the holidays, have fun with your dinner decor! Visit us for more holiday pieces and decorating ideas.

Flower Power: Murano Glass Chandelier by Cenedese



Murano Glass Chandelier by Cenedese

This piece serves as a testament to why Cenedese is historically one of the most important and highly respected Murano glass makers in Italy. With a reflective main structure, this chandelier is a sphere covered in hand blown glass flowers on every surface. Each meticulously made flower is a masterpiece on its own. Put together, they create a charming and exquisite fixture. A true work of art.
