Unique Furniture Finds In Nashville And Nearby

by Jen Bua

Making a home is a multi-step process. You find the area or neighborhood that really speaks to you, then you find the house that feels like you’re meant to be there. (I love helping buyers with both of those pursuits.) 

Once you move in, there’s another big task: turning a blank canvas into something that feels like you, and a place that feels truly like home. Or, more specifically: bringing in the right furniture and accessories.

I love design, so putting the finishing touches on rooms is a big passion for me. And there are a lot of places from Nashville to Franklin that I’ll go to find the perfect pieces. Below are just a few of the places I’ll look for unique furniture finds.

Recreations Furniture 

4319 Sidco Dr., Nashville

The origins of the furniture at Recreations vary greatly — from classic American-made items to European antiques and modern “show pieces.” But the thread that carries through: fine, quality pieces that are meant to be a part of your life for a long time to come.

Preservation Station 

1809 8th Ave. S., Nashville

If you’re fixing up and/or restoring a historic home in the area and you’re looking for period-perfect pieces, Preservation Station on Eighth Avenue South is a must-stop. We’re stretching from furniture to decor, here, but when you need an early 1900s chandelier or an antique bathroom medicine cabinet, this is where you’ll find it.

2 Danes 

73 White Bridge Rd., Nashville

Is contemporary design with European sleekness your aesthetic leaning? It’s hard to go wrong at 2 Danes, which carries modern pieces that range from bold and colorful to clean and unadorned. I’ve found that you can cover a lot of tastes here — designing a bedroom that evokes an upscale hotel, a living room that beams Mad Men cool or a media space that’s youthful and bright.

Pre to Post Modern

2110 8th Ave. S., Nashville

There’s no shortage of great vintage shops in Davidson and Williamson County — that could be a roundup post all its own. But one of the places I think consistently finds really great, unique vintage furniture pieces: Pre to Post Modern on Eighth Avenue South. If you’re hunting for a perfect mid-century piece to tie up a room, there’s a good chance you’ll find it there. Like any busy vintage shop, it’s total luck of the draw, but stopping by to hunt is always fun.

Modern Arks

If you’re drawn to the look of weathered/reclaimed wood and modern design, Whites Creek furniture maker Jamie Bennett of Modern Arks probably has what you’re looking for, or can make it. His work has clean lines paired with the warmth of materials like barn wood and repurposed crates. I really like this Modern-Reclaimed Platform Bed — it has a timeless look and tons of personality at the same time. There isn’t a Modern Arks shop, but you’ll see Jamie’s work at lots of local makers markets and you can order pieces at the Modern Arks website, too.

Are any of these places on your furniture-hunting lists too? Are there other favorites you’d like to share? Love to hear your thoughts.

If you’re still early on in this process — looking for the right area and the right home — I’d love to help you. Just drop me a line
