Autumn brings us together—the crisp weather drawing us inside to share meals and conversation. Naturally, fall is the perfect time to refresh any dining room with captivating new pieces.
“It’s where families gather,” says Lin Bertoncini, senior buyer for Dining, Media & Accessories at Watson’s. “Sharing a meal is one of the biggest social events that families have—and you do that around a dining room table.”
When Watson’s expanded, creating a 40,000-square-foot indoor furniture section within their new 100,000-square-foot showroom in Evendale, Lin and the indoor buying team spent months searching for the best artisan vendors to bring both quality and style to the dining room.
The cornerstone of the new collection is Design Your Own Way, a fully customizable dining-table-and-chairs experience. With so many options to choose from, shoppers can select everything from the wood and finish to the size and shape, creating a set that perfectly fits their style—and their needs.
“You’ll end up with handcrafted, one-of-a-kind pieces made in the U.S. or Canada, all built to your exact specifications,” Lin says. “No one else will have anything that looks exactly like it.”
Also available is the stately selection from Ohio’s Amish Country and the new Trisha Yearwood collection, which offers a rustic-chic farmhouse table that comes with extension leaves.
“Our customers want to customize their room to fit exactly how many people they’re entertaining,” Lin says. “Family of four around the table? Hosting a party for 12? No problem.”
The collection contains well-matched sideboards, servers and buffet tables as well.
“After things are passed around, most people want to set it down out of the way—not everything you’re serving can fit in the center of the table,” Lin says. “So a sideboard, server or buffet is the perfect place to set your wine, your glasses or extra plates.”
No matter what your dining room needs, the ability to customize your choices with artisan, unique touches means you’ll be eager, excited and most of all ready to gather together this season.
