As the temperatures are getting (slightly) cooler, we’re starting to experience some relief from the infamous Charleston heat. We’re flipping through the latest Charleston Home and Design magazine (look for our Ad here) and taking in inspiration and starting to get excited. Whether you’re ready or not, the 2018 holiday season is getting closer and closer. It seems like just yesterday we were gathered around the table eating far too much scrumptious food and arguing with that certain relative about something trivial.
At Steven Shell Living, we hope we can help alleviate some of the stress this holiday season by continuing to provide you with the best products and services available. Our 25,000 square foot showroom and staff are revving up for the bustling holiday season. We’re clearing out space to make way for all of our classic pieces that our customers have come to know and love as well as some new additions along with a nice selection of adorable holiday accessories.
If you haven’t heard the news yet, recently we launched our in-home design service in an effort to help you create the space of your dreams. From the tiniest of accessories to the biggest upholstery and wood furniture, let us help you create a space unique to your exact taste. Let us handle the heavy lifting as we invite to use your newly acquired time to spend more time cooking, baking and creating treasured moments with loved ones.
As we have mentioned before, we know it can get a little overwhelming especially when we offer seemingly limitless customization options. In an effort to help expedite this process we’ve put together a little cheat sheet to help inspire not only you but your future holiday guests (even the pesky ones.)
First and foremost we’re going to need a place to gather around and we’ve got plenty of options.
Serving a large number of people? Many of our tables including our popular Riverwalk Dining Table come in sizes ranging from 6 feet all the way up to 10 feet.
Keep in mind when shopping for dining tables, the standard height for most of our dining tables is 30 inches. As a rule of thumb, shop for chairs (don’t worry, we’ve got plenty of those too) that leave about 12 inches from seat to table giving you and your guests a comfortable amount of room at the table.
If you’re looking for something that offers a bit more flexibility, our Eton dining table is a sophisticated option in the event that unexpected guests arrive. This elegant table offers a classic look and extends out from five feet to seven feet.
You can also go the roundtable route. Great for smaller areas in your home, Steven Shell Living offers plenty of options. Appreciate the unique? Check out our five foot Pompadour Dining Table. The Pompadour table is traditional with a twist offering curved legs reminiscent of an era gone by.
As we’ve mentioned, we have something for everyone. Our Little Tykes table complete with chalkboard top (available in four colors) is the perfect addition to keep your little ones happy and busy at their own table.
We also offer many great options for secondary counter height tables.
Our exquisite St. James Pub set puts the fun in functionality. Keep your guests fed and entertained at the same time as this counter height table comes complete with a matching chess and backgammon gaming pieces. The triangular shaped chairs nest under the table when not in use for optimal space saving.
Our customer favorite Goucho Table is also a great option for those looking for something a little bit larger. This no-nonsense design is a staple here at Steven Shell Living offering ample space at 39 inches by 39 inches.
This is only a small selection of what we have to offer you. Keep in mind that each of these can be customized in many different ways by changing color, stain and distress levels.
Also don’t forget, Steven Shell Living offers an eclectic mix of tabletop goods suited to help entertain and serve even the largest of groups including elegant china and sturdy melamine products.
We hope that we're able to help you bring joy and memories to your family for this holiday season and many more to come. Stop by our Charleston or Raleigh store today for all of this and so much more.
