In a March post, we talked about what amazing animals elephants are and how they can even paint. And I promised that I’d explain why an outdoor décor site like ours is spotlighting elephants.

Drum roll please….

It’s been a little over 18 months since we began developing the Bombay Outdoors collection of original and distinctive outdoor décor. From the very beginning our goal was to design a new line of outdoor furniture and accessories that integrates timeless style, unexpected details, and global inspiration with comfort and affordability.

Now all the hard work has paid off and we’re excited to show you the Jaipur Elephant Side table, one of the eight items from our 2015 collection that will be available online starting this Memorial Day weekend.

Here it is, our new Bombay® Jaipur Elephant Table, which comes with the metal accessory. You can hang a plant on the hook, put a candle in the candle holder, or both.

Brooks, the designer of this piece, says he was inspired by the ceremonial rituals that underpinned the workings of the royal courts of India.

“As part of a royal procession, the elephant was adorned with textiles, a ‘howdah’ (the seat), and elephant jewelry belonging to the Maharaja or Maharani (king or queen).”

Brooks further explained that although the Jaipur table is monochromatic, there is delicate ornamentation on his dressing. “It was more about bringing out the shapes and posture of the elephant, rather than all the colors.”

We are especially proud of Brook’s Bombay Outdoors Jaipur Elephant Table, but we also like the two elephant tables below.

This Bali Elephant table (from our partner company, Bombay Furniture) blends warm colors of antique gold and silver. A foot tall, it’s back tray is perfect for books, beverages, or a small cushion.
