The iconic `tini IIz . . .

As we approach the anniversary of our launch last August at the New York International Gift Fair, we have to think back to what attracted all that attention. It certainly wasn't us! If we really were to select the one BIG HIT of the show, it would probably be our `tini IIz.

Of course the fact that they come in all our 16 fabulous colors makes them a show-stopper on their own. But add that fabulous chocolate zigzag surface and you have a table that will stop traffic!
Oscar loves his!

The Southport Coffee Table . . .

Southport is another beautiful town in Connecticut that inspired one of our most popular glass coffee tables. Again, it's a coastal town with a history and close enough for us to frequent. Southport's earliest recorded event was "the Great Swamp Fight" of 1637 an episode of the Pequot War where English colonials vanquished a band of about 100 Pequot Indians that had fled from Mystic. 
A swamp fight is the last thing that comes to mind when you stroll the picturesque streets of this pristine Connecticut Village! It looks like a movie set - every house is charming and their gardens are second to none. 
That is how it became the namesake for our gorgeous glass coffee table! The oomph Southport is reminiscent of a garden gate leading to a secret garden on your Grandmother's estate. The secret here is that it's a modern glass coffee table that screams sophistication in any of our 16 high lacquer colors. But it screams it quietly, for as any well-bred aristocrat knows - understated is understood. The oomph Southport glass coffee table is perfection on your own country estate or in your downtown pied-à-terre.

Dimensions: 36 L x 36 W x 19 H
Available in any of our 16 highly lacquered colors.
Top: Clear Glass, Optional: Starfire Glass $250 additional.
Custom Color available at additional cost. Please call 203-216-9848

Golftini . . .

Now everybody is in on the (martini) act. Being golfers, (or at least two out of the three of us) and martini drinkers - (that would be us all) - GOLFTINI was discovered. Golftini is a fun, fairly new line of skorts and tops for the golf course and beyond. We loved the name first - but upon further viewing - we thought it was all pretty adorable.
And like all good friends, we thought we would share our find with you! We particularly liked her birth announcement - "After a few shaken and stirred experiments, the first Golftini skorts were born and gained popularity wherever she golfed."

The Essex Coffee Table . . .

Essex, Connecticut is yet another oomph favorite town. So of course it too became a namesake for a contemporary coffee table. This one was an obvious choice for our handsome architectural beauty, the oomph Essex Table.
Essex is a beautiful old shipbuilding town on the Connecticut River. It was the target of a British attack during the War of 1812 and one of the few American towns ever to be attacked by a foreign power. The British rowed up the river six miles from their war ships anchored in Long Island Sound and burned all the ships. It was a devastating blow and largest economic loss to the country during the entire war.
Essex has many a beautiful home and a famous old Tavern called the Griswold Inn in the heart of the village. Not unlike the town, the oomph Essex has beautiful architecture as well.  The oomph Essex is a contemporary wood coffee table that has a classic look. In a bright color, it can instantly revitalize a room. In a neutral, it could be right at home in any of the gorgeous old homes on Main Street updating a room with it's clean yet classic lines.

The Essex table appears to be a small coffee table because of itʼs airy appearance but is a BIG statement on style. This contemporary wood coffee table flatters any setting; from your SOHO loft to your home on the harbor. Make it the focus of your nest in one of our beautiful 16 colors. 
Dimensions: 36 L x 36 W x 19 H
Available in any of our 16 highly lacquered colors.
Top: Clear Glass, 
Optional: Starfire Glass $250 additional.
Custom Color available at additional cost. Please call 203-216-9848.
