Robert Beukema grew up in the furniture business. His dad was the west coast representative for Baker Furniture starting with the company in his native Grand Rapids, Michigan. Robert logged many hours on Saturdays and Sundays at the Los Angeles showroom wandering in and out of room displays while his dad worked. Needless to say, Robert’s childhood home was filled with great American-made furniture, and he honed his eye toward importance of quality.
Graduating with a degree in business and a minor in art history, Robert worked in education, and saw first hand the importance of lessons learned not just in school, but around the family table at mealtime. During this time, he also apprenticed with some of Los Angeles’ and New York’s premiere event planners and florists including the venerable David Jones and the innovative Emily Thompson, and further sharpened his eye with regards to all things tabletop. Adding to this first-hand education, Robert traveled with some of California’s most innovative retailers and was introduced to the trade shows and antique markets of Europe.
Settling in Arizona, Robert has opened his own tabletop shop, For Your Tabletop, which specializes in new and thoughtfully curated vintage products for the table sourced both locally, and from abroad. Robert has also had a presence on the web, first with his blog, which then was folded into his shop’s website, foryourtabletop.com, where many of his products can also be purchased.
Robert has given talks to groups about the importance of gathering around the table and the benefits it brings to people of all ages, decorated the East Room of the White House for Christmas, and has added his voice to the growing chorus of those in the know that it’s at the table where we learn who we are as a family, hear our stories being shared, and find out what our history is and what is most important to us. Robert believes in the importance of gathering, sharing, and learning around the table, and that each home should tell that family’s unique story- because Home is Your History.™
