Architectural Digest Home Design Show “Sneak Peek”: Tuscan Hills, LLC

Suzanne and Greg Evans, owners of Tuscan Hills, were first inspired by Italian design while touring through Italy in 1980. With admiration for the Italian culture, the serene and beautiful countryside, fine craftsmanship, and enchanting villas located upon the rolling hills of Italy, they decided to start a new business venture. Bringing Italian ideas and concepts to the United States, the Evans have created a wonderful niche in the American market. Specializing in two areas, home furnishings and real estate, Tuscan Hills has the ability to imitate the Italian lifestyle.
Tuscan Hills will be exhibiting at the New York Architectural Digest Home Design Show this month. Among the pieces the company will be showcasing is the Piero della Francesca table top. Handmade exclusively in Italy and being imported and distributed in the U.S. by Tuscan Hills, the Piero della Francesca table top is ideal for outdoor landscape designs.

The table top measures 84’’ long and 42’’ wide and is named after Piero della Francesca, an Italian painter whose artwork is most known for the use of geometric forms and perspectives. He passed away on October 12th, 1492, the same day Christopher Columbus discovered America. The travertine stone used for the table is quarried, cut and carved in Umbria, Italy by the Corneli family, whose workshop is not far from where Piero della Francesca was born. Notably, the table is inlayed with handmade terracotta and designed in a geometric pattern on the table’s perimeter.
