Oh, finally! Autumn has arrived! We are seeing cooler temperatures (at night at least!), giving us plenty of opportunity for the splendid outdoor life- that Tucsonans love-and reminding us of the festive gathering season ahead in November and December. Nothing makes me happier than to listen to great conversation and the fun underway around our family’s dinner table. I just love a beautifully set table and a dining room full of family and friends. And I know I am lucky to be allowed such proximity to my human companions. What can I say? I’m a special dog, perhaps?!
I’ve discovered that this is also the season that many people begin to look at their homes critically, to see how they can make improvements, in terms of comfort and beauty, in anticipation of the multitudes of warm gatherings ahead. Contents Interiors can help our customers plan ahead and has a great number of gorgeous dining tables in stock and ready to go, as well as ones that can be ordered now for delivery before mid-December.
When you walk into our showroom, if you love glamorous tables like I do, you will not be able to walk by the impressive “Glam Trav” table in our Desert Italia apartment without a good long look. This table, by Italian manufacturer Stone, is a showstopper and will likely, very soon, find its place in one of Tucson’s most elegant homes. Exploring Stone’s collection of table surfaces, in the form of samples of marble, onyx, wood and travertine, is an awe-inspiring experience itself. Make an appointment with us to look and discuss options, or just come in and have a peek of these gem-like samples. At the same time, you can peruse the array of Stone’s table bases in metal, stone and wood.
Fortunately, there are many tables in stock in our showroom and in our warehouse. One recent arrival is a table called “Diablo”, from the Modern Mountain Collection by the in demand furniture maker Jason Scott. Known for his exotic heirloom pieces of furniture, The Jason Scott Collection, made from reclaimed teak by craftsmen in Java, Jason has created his Modern Mountain Collection as a reflection of inspiration he has found living here in Arizona. The live edge of this table and natural grain of the teak wood give this table incredible earthy sensuality. The table seems to embody the essence of Javanese romance, with a distinctly Organic Contemporary look. It is 98-inches long and could easily and comfortably fit 3 chairs on each side, or 4 smaller chairs for your larger gatherings. Jason Scott’s designs are one of a kind and, as mentioned, are in high demand, so when this one goes it may be some time before we acquire another similar dining room table. Please come in soon to look at this one!
Two more tables, both Contemporary, are also very exciting to contemplate. The Crystalceramica table by Italian company Midj is a super sleek looking table that has an unique surface, made from a technical process that reduces wear and tear and gives it high resistance to stress, strains, abrasions, and even frost and fire. You can eat or do projects on it with your most energetic children or grandchildren with no worries whatsoever. You can even iron on this table-and chop your veggies-if you feel like it! Now that’s thinking smart! Thanks Midj! The other contemporary table you might like to sneak a peek at is the 84-inch reclaimed Peroba wood table. It has an antique brass clad pedestal, giving it an Organic Contemporary feel and ample space for 6-8 people.
There are numerous round tables in stock too. The Rosa Morada 66-inch has studs around its edge, giving it a western look. And the 72-inch Mesquite table is both beautiful and indigenous to our area. Super nice! The Loren 46-inch bistro table is made of rustic wood and can be paired with the super comfortable and very cool leather and metal chairs that we have displayed around it.
There are so many more dining table options to make your upcoming festive season both comfortable and perfectly beautiful! So please do come in and have a good browse around soon! I look forward to seeing you! And just one other special tidbit! Our pre-walk Raffle and Fundraising Party on September 28th in preparation for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society‘s ‘Light the Night’ walk on October 21st, was a wonderful way to acknowledge the life and good works of our friend Danilo Lopez, husband of Contents Interiors Designer Julia Lopez, who, sadly, lost his life to Lymphoma. It seems we are all touched by the lives of those whose experience the challenge of cancer. Some from the team at Contents Interiors will be walking at 5pm on October 21st, at Park Place, to help raise funds for the Society’s research toward a cure. Please do join them at the walk, if you can, or, if you feel the urge to help, please sponsor them via the Leukemia and Lymphoma’s Society’s website.
Many warm thoughts to you and your family,
