Featured Nashville Home Store of the Week:

D. Luxe Home at Marathon Village

Everyone and their mother (at least in Nashville) loves Marathon Village, the one-time derelict factory that has since been seriously spruced up and repurposed into some of the best-looking retail spaces in town.  

One of the stand-outs among those retail spaces is D. Luxe Home, which stocks furniture, lighting, salvage finds, gift, and art, along with one-of-a-kind treasures and oddities. 

The shop is owned by the same people behind residential design group Bynum Design and was initially conceived of as a staging showroom but quickly became a full-on retail destination when it opened almost 13 months ago. Because of its close proximity to Antique Archaeology, it's mostly a stop-off for tourists in search of antiques and Nashville mementos, but this needs to change. Hey, locals: you'll love this shop, too! If only you knew about it... That's what I'm here for. 
One of the cool things about this shop is the way they juxtapose rustic accessories (think chipping paint candlesticks and rusty toy trucks) with glamorous accessories (think crystal candlesticks and chandeliers). There are also lots of nods to architecture with salvaged corbels, pilasters, rails, and other bits and bobs that I don't know the technical name for.

The shop has developed a surprising niche for all things bovine. Besides carrying a line of fine cowhide rugs by Saddlemans', D. Luxe also stocks a number of cow paintings--both originals and prints--and has a number of other cow-themed accessories. 

Here are just a few of the Saddleman's of Santa Fe rug samples available for you to choose from:

I guess what we're trying to say here is: D. Luxe Home is a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll. Tell the tourists to stop hogging the joint and get down to Marathon Village to experience it for yourself.
