[June] Are you ready to be swept away into the breathtakingly beautiful world of linens? Not just any linens... I'm happy to introduce you to La Tavola Linens!
When did La Tavola open in Napa/Sonoma? We opened our doors in April of 2008. We then opened our Beverly Hills office, soon after San Francisco, Santa Barbara & Newport Beach and we are opening a Sacramento showroom in July.
Was there a missing niche in the market? Yes, definitely. La Tavola started with the intention of offering specialty fabrics with extremely high quality at affordable prices. With that in mind, we have found that brides and planners alike are flocking to the product because it is one-of-a-kind in that respect. It helps that our price point is affordable for almost all budgets.
What rentals are you most known for? Our New York – sequined linens along with our Tuscano (natural linen) line are very popular!
What rentals do you offer that are less known? We carry a lot of chair covers that are hard to showcase in our linen swatch books. We also have throw pillows and bean bags that are fun accent pieces.
Can you share some trends that you're seeing for 2011/2012? Every year event specialists create the most amazing and unique looks, there is much to be inspired by. Because we are in so many areas now we see trends specific to each area. Santa Barbara, Napa & Sonoma are loving the vintage inspired look. Our Milano collection is very popular there...think burlap, natural linens, table runners on rustic farm tables. Beverly Hills and Newport Beach have been loving our Monique & Issabella linens. These are a little more formal, lots of texture & bold colors.
Any other fun tidbits or facts to share? Our linens are selected from all over the world! Betsy and Herb travel yearly to discover the latest linen releases and trends to make sure we have the very best for our clients!
Is the showroom open to the public, even if a couple doesn't have a coordinator? Yes, we are open to the public! We do encourage the public to make appointments if they need help selecting linens. We are open M-F 9-4
Thank you La Tavola!
