Gallery Furniture makes deliveries happen, no matter how heavy the object, and in this blog a member of the Gallery Furniture Delivery team who worked on setting up the Gallery Furniture Kreiss Showroom assisted with the delivery of a Kreiss Rope Travertine inlay table with bases.
I just wanted to tell you about my first delivery experience taking a Kreiss table and base to a customer in the River Oaks off of Westheimer. I had been at the Gallery Furniture Kreiss store in the Highland Village with my helper Paul assisting the decorators with moving setting Kreiss furniture as well Tempur-Pedic mattress displays when I got the call for delivery.
I was told that we had a delivery of high end Kreiss furniture with Omar and Arturro headed to River Oaks. Specifically, we were delivering a Travertine Rope inlay table that Hamilton and Gil had shot the previous day for a customer request - the Kreiss Travertine Rope Inlay Table had two beautiful bases that had excellent scroll work on them. I was excited that we now carry this beautiful high end Kreiss furniture at Gallery Furniture and even more excited that we can get Kreiss furniture to customers today.
I gotta say Mack, though, that the Kreiss Travertine Rope Inlay table is the single heaviest piece I have ever delivered - and that was with the help of FOUR guys. The table is a work of art and its Roman style construction lent to it a solid form that while very felt silky smooth, an effect that encompassed the entire piece. Along with an antique texture and rope pattern that embedded the near edge of the surface, the Kreiss Travertine Rope inlay table defined style, beauty, and simplicity.
By the way, Mack, did I mention the table top was really, really, HEAVY??
Paul, Steve, and myself from Gallery Furniture grabbed Omar and Arturro to assist with the delivery. When we arrived at the home I was greeted by our wonderful Gallery Furniture customer who showed us exactly where the table needed to go. After moving plants and lamps to clear a safe path we slowly (and may I add, carefully, unloaded the Kreiss Travertine top. Before we did anything else, we first set the two bases inside.
Then came the Kreiss Travertine Rope Inlay Table. I grabbed one end while Omar grabbed the other. Paul, Arturro, and Steve helped balance the middle and we moved the table. Mack, I gotta let you know, it felt like carrying one of those ornate gun safes (i.e., heavy) which as to be close to five-hundred-plus pounds. Luckily, our wonderful Gallery Furniture customer had French Doors - and your Gallery Furniture delivery team LOVES French Doors) and we set up her table and with her assistance centered it in relation to her crystal chandelier and she was very, very happy with the result!
