High Impact Home at the Givin House
Revamp your home with beautiful décor pieces large and small
It always seems like when fall rolls around, we get in the mood to nest and maybe even host a dinner party or two. Of course Madison has its share of home décor and furnishings shops, but few carry tabletop and supplies for the perfect dinner party. That’s where The Givin House shines.
“We have carefully selected several high quality lines of dinnerware, serving pieces and gifts to create a shopper’s destination,” says proprietor Paula Jones.
Jones’ four-year-old store also boasts custom furnishings, home accessories and full interior design services. They’ve even got a personal shopper service for those who aren’t crazy about perusing for that perfect piece for their home: “Sometimes people are hesitant to seek the services of a designer for that one special piece, but we love taking on those challenges.”
Check out the store’s several exclusive lines (Juliska, Simon Pearce, Beatriz Ball, French Heritage and Lauren Gray) as well as serveware and furniture that come in the latest colors and patterns. Juliska’s exquisite dinner-ware design (new for fall) is particularly striking; Jones is loving Hancock & Moore’s leather pieces, which come in four hundred different leathers and colors.
So if you need a little home decoration inspiration you might want to stop here: “We rely on our talented staff to continually put a fresh look together.”

QUITE A DISH
“A trend that we’ll continue to address is more brides are choosing not to register for formal china [and] instead select a pattern and brand that is durable enough to be used every day and will be appropriate for a number of occasions,” says Jones, who loves Juliska’s wares for just that reason. $26–$180
These French Heritage stunners are a statement piece for any room. $2,475
Simon Pearce’s glassware is mouthblown and made in the U.S. The sand is even imported from Belgium to formulate remarkably clear glass. $25–$350
This chest of drawers is so unique and modern, it could work in any room from a little girl’s bedroom to a very chic study. $1,564
Mariposa’s serveware, glassware and seasonal items are remarkably affordable and versatile. These one hundred percent recycled sandcast aluminum pieces even have a trademark “stringer pearl” edge that, yep, looks like the same thing. $14–$190
Jones’s showroom is an artful mix of colors, patterns and textures—look for ikat-printed chairs, a harlequin-patterned chest and whimsical throw pillows. $14–$190
