I’m forever on the lookout for places to buy vintage furniture in Nashville. I’m also forever on the lookout for places to buy unique, handmade home decor.

So, when Dashwood Vintage & Flora opened in September 2018, over in the Donelson area near Opryland, my interest was certainly piqued.

The kind of stuff the Dashwood Vintage & Flora folks are stocking: vintage furniture from the midcentury, Art Deco and Hollywood Regency eras; globally sourced newer furniture with “an eclectic, modern meets vintage vibe”; and vintage decor and art from the 1950s through ’70s.

If you’re a Nashvillian with a heart for home decor, all those terms probably ticked the right boxes.

Another added plus: They restore vintage pieces too, a definite benefit for Nashville homeowners and renters who don’t have the time or inclination to fix up vintage finds that have been a bit well-worn.

And the Flora part: Dashwood’s also carrying a mix of houseplants, with a focus on spanning skill levels, from leafy friends that need a steady hand to desert plants that even the most plant-inept among us can probably keep healthy.

Just over the past few weeks, I’ve seen them dig up a heart-stopping five-piece Kent-Coffey bedroom set, including headboard (a serious prize among midcentury furniture hounds); a pitch-perfect 1970s Peacock chair; eye-grabbing velvet Art Deco chairs; plus great vintage rugs, macrame wall hangings and tons more.

This business is an addition to the Nashville vintage home shopping landscape that I almost want to keep to myself (their recent Broyhill Brasilia dresser find went too fast). But, I live to serve Nashville homeowners and househunters.
