Autumn brings us together, with crisp weather drawing us inside to share meals and great conversation. Fall is the perfect time to refresh a dining room with perfect furniture 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.”
As Watson’s has expanded, creating a 40,000 square foot indoor furniture section of their new 100,000 square foot showroom in Evendale, Lin and the indoor buying team spent months searching for the best artisan vendors to offer quality in dining.
“Cincinnati deserves the nation’s best selection of customizable choices,” Lin said.
The cornerstone of the collection is a customizable dining room table and chairs experience called the Design Your Own. With many options to choose from, shoppers pick everything from the wood and finish to the size and shape, to create a dining set that perfectly fits their needs.
“You’ll end up with handcrafted, one-of-a-kind pieces made in the U.S. or Canada to your exact specifications,” explains Lin. “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 side boards, servers and buffet tables as well.
“After things are passed around, most people want to set them down out of the way, and not everything you’re serving can fit in the center of the table,” Lin says. “So a side board, server or buffet is the perfect place to set your wine, your glasses or extra food offerings.”
No matter what your dining room needs, the ability to customize your choices with artisan, unique touches means that you’ll be excited to gather together this season.
