Emerson James Rental was created to bring new tabletop elements to the special event industry, so that you can create meaningful spaces that invite your guests in.
Our experience and service set us apart from all other rental companies. Our carefully selected items are chosen for their unique elements to create a table for your event that is one-of-a-kind.
Our design space is created so that you can visit to create a table that is perfect for your event. Our skillset is a huge value add, as we can help advise on every step of the process. Not able to visit in person? We can easily create a design for you based on your inspiration and send sample images for you to review.
We look forward to connecting with you as you plan your event and being a part of the memorable space you create.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use rental items for a styled shoot?
Absolutely! We loved partnering with other creatives on photoshoots. We offer a styled shoot package for $250 plus any shipping costs. It includes sets of 8 place settings.
I’m planning an event outside of Virginia. Do you service other areas?
We do! Depending on your order size and specifications, we can plan to hand deliver items by truck or ship items directly to your venue.
I’m interested in a few different items and would love to see how they look together. How can I do that?
If you’ll be in Charlottesville, we’d love to have you come by our space and see our items in person, or we can drop items off at your venue if you’ll be doing a mockup for your event. If you aren’t local, we’re happy to pull your selections together and send you some photos.
I’ve been looking everywhere for a certain look / style / item and can’t seem to find it. Can you help?
Yes! We love to hear from clients about what you’re looking for to see if we can source it or custom-make something for you.
How does the booking process work?
Once we have your information (contact, date, delivery location), we will send you a quote and a contract. After you’ve approved the quote, we require a 50% deposit and security deposit (returned to you after the event once we have received all inventory in tact) in order to reserve your items for your event date.
How does the post-event process work? Do I have to wash the dishes?
We take care of all the post-event work for you. We will pick up the items from your venue and wash everything!
I’d love to rent some place settings for my family gathering. Do you have a minimum requirement?
We cater to events of all sizes. Inquire with us for more information!
Can I rent linens with you?
Yes! We offer the full line of La Tavola Linens. To see samples currently available at our location, click here. When you book linens with us, we take care of the delivery and pickup of your linen order in addition to your Emerson James tabletop items as well!
