Tom’s Fine Furniture and Collectables, in conjunction with the historic Arizona Inn, is selling an exclusive and limited number of chairs from the original dining room of the Inn to raise money for our local Veteran’s Hospital. CLICK HERE for more information!
Starting in 1981 inside a modest little storefront at Alvernon and Speedway, local entrepreneur Tom Ward began selling quality second hand furniture, lamps and decorative items. Tom’s eye for quality and his passion for home furnishings became his recipe for success, and it didn’t take long for word to get around and for Tom’s business to catch on. Shoppers in Tucson began flocking to Tom’s Fine Furniture and Collectables to find all sorts of wonderful things to beautify their homes inside and out.
Within a few years Tom’s outgrew this first store and Tom moved his operation to a larger building at 3402 E. Grant Road (the former home of Tia Elena Mexican Restaurant). Business continued to boom and it didn’t take long for Tom’s to outgrow the Grant Road store. In 2000 Tom’s Fine Furniture and Collectables expanded again, this time into the 16,000 square foot former Food Giant supermarket located in the Londontown shopping center at 5454 E. Pima Street. Business at both stores continued to increase, but the recession of 2008 caused a slowdown for retailers everywhere, and for a while Tom closed down the Grant Road store. However, in December of 2015, Tom’s reopened their beautiful Grant Road location to the delight of our customers.
Tom’s company motto is “When New Isn’t Good Enough,” because we know that the furniture that our parents and grandparents owned was crafted from better materials than most of the furniture you can buy new today, and it was made to last for generations. You’ll find details of quality construction, such as real wood (not wood pulp), dovetailing (not butt-joinery), 8-way hand-tied springs, and screws or pegs (instead of staples) on most of our furniture. These are a few of the details Tom looks for when selecting quality inventory for his stores.
TWO UNIQUE STORES
Our Pima Street and Grant Road stores carry the same high quality, gently used and one-of-a-kind furnishings, however there are a few differences between the two locations.
The Pima Street store is our Superstore, and in addition to furniture, lamps, framed artwork, mirrors, large rugs, and other decorative items you can find jewelry, vintage clothing, silverware sets, china sets, clocks, and a ton of vintage smalls that appeal to collectors of every stripe.
The Grant Road store is our Boutique store, and it is here that you’ll find our selection of outdoor furniture, a big selection of brand new lamp shades and finials, and vintage audio electronics, in addition to smaller rugs and furniture of all styles and periods. Plus, customers really enjoy our music!!!
NEWS: Summer/Fall of 2018 brings our Grant Road store expansion. We’ve completed phase 1 by opening up our West room. Phase II should be complete by the end of September!
VARIETY KNOWN FROM COAST TO COAST
Our selection of furniture always changes. Customers love our vast selection ranging from 18th Century antiques and primitives to classic European pieces and 20th Century styles including Mission, Art Deco, Southwest, 1980’s & 1990’s Postmodern, Contemporary, and Mid Century. If you’re looking for it, we have it. And if we don’t have it today we might just have it next week.
