Our Story

… is really a fairy tale!!

Kimberly and Charles lived and worked in New York City but always dreamed of owning their own business.

So in 1998, Kim and Charles decided to open Once Upon A Table in historic Chester amongst the backdrop of some of New Jersey’s most beautiful countryside.  Originally conceived as a gourmet bistro surrounded by an eclectic assortment of home accessories and furniture, Kim and Charles’ creativity for buying unique pieces of furniture and home accessories transformed Once Upon A Table into a home furnishings business.  Customer requests for Kim’s interior design services resulted in the creation of the Interior Design Studio at Once Upon A Table in the Spring of 2000.

Today, Once Upon A Table is a full-service home furnishings and interior design store occupying a 5,000 square foot former 19th Century general store.

From the Old World charm and romantic grandeur drawn from eras past to today’s sophisticated transitional style, Once Upon A Table’s eclectic mix of furniture and accessories will enhance the serenity and intimacy of your home with treasures you will cherish for a lifetime.

Weave your own story of enchanting warmth and elegance . . . a story that could only begin with Once Upon A Table.
