September is a busy, yet exciting month! It’s a time when we begin transitioning from summer to fall, start the new football season and discover the latest trends in fashion! And for us, it’s an especially exciting month as we not only introduce Calligaris, the celebrated contemporary furniture brand to all Cantoni stores but also officially open the Calligaris Studio at our Flagship, Dallas store! The 1,600 square foot shop-in-shop features sleek furnishings for the office, living, dining, and sleeping spaces as well as accessories and lighting from the iconic Italian line.
Over the past few months, Cantoni’s talented Visual’s Team have been hard at work arranging sofas, beds, tables, and chairs in unique spaces as well as stylishly decorating with rugs, lighting, storage systems, and accessories within the Calligaris Studio to help you, our customers, envision how pieces could live in your very own home! In fact, last week, on September 17th, we hosted the kickoff party for Dallas based non-profit Dwell with Dignity‘s bi-annual fundraiser, Thrift Studio. As part of the event, Dallas design heavies and supporters received a first look at the gorgeous Calligaris Studio (see pics below).

Calligaris Studio at Cantoni Dallas
From multi-functional units to chic extendable tables, Calligaris offers a number of space saving solutions waiting to be discovered! Browse a few of our favorites below and discover how to incorporate these pieces into your space to fit your personal home decor!
Inbox Hanging Cabinet
This functional vertical unit is suitable for both the living area (as seen above) or the kitchen! Measuring at approximately 47 inches high, this hanging cabinet features a left or right-hand door opening and 2 sleek glass shelves. Customize your wall by combining various inbox cabinets and finishes or choose from our selection of compositions!
The Division Bookcase is not just a simple white unit…it’s a multi-functional unit whose base is fitted with height-adjustable feet to ensure perfect stability. With a variety of configurations and compartments waiting to be filled with practical and colorful aluminum dividing containers (optional), the Division offers an ideal and stylish storage solution. Anchor a tall unit to a wall (as pictured above) in your living room or office space or create a room divider with the double-sided free-standing version, a great option for loft and studio layouts.
Acacia Dining Table
Measuring at approximately 47 inches in diameter, the stylish Acacia Table is a great option for a space-challenged dining room. Its round top seats all guests comfortably, even when they are in odd numbers! Another feature we personally love about this dining table is its matte optic white base. Resembling the branches of a tree, the seemingly lightweight look is anything but delicate in structure. It is the long curved “branches” that create a sturdy metal base to support the sleek glass top.
Orbital Dining Table
Extendible dining tables are the perfect example of form and function combining to create beautifully useful pieces that work for any space. The Orbital combines cutting-edge design and technology to create an ingenious automatic opening mechanism. When fully extended, the eye-catching table can comfortably seat up to 10 people.
Amelie Side Chair
Add a pop of color to your space with the fun, yet sophisticated Amelie Side Chairs! Not only is this modern and upholstered chair super comfortable, thanks to the wrap around backrest and elastic belts to support the seat, but it is also extremely versatile and can be used in your living, meeting, or dining room.
