Smart Furniture

Monday, May 24, 2010

A few weeks ago I wandered into the only Smart Furniture retail outfit in the country, and it is located here in Chattanooga!  If you are not familiar with Smart Furniture, allow me to fill you in!  Smart Furniture is an on-line furniture retailer that specializes in modern furnishings from the most reputable and recognizable manufacturers such as Knoll, Herman Miller, Blu Dot, and Kartell!

This is the obvious interpretation of modern, and I have to admit it is stylish; however, there is a certain magic that happens when modern furnishings are combined with classic, Asian, and even rustic design elements....

Love this rustic meets glam meets modern!

Beyond fabulous! This is Glamorous

Love this Regency style table in white lacquer from Smart Furniture

And this Strut table from Blu Dot through Smart Furniture .  This dining table is also available in pink! 

Hope you find your perfect mix!

Yes, the combination is my favorite look. I couldn't believe the chandelier in the 5th image. My friend has two in her home. She bought them from a store that was closing and selling all their fixtures - she got them both for $100! I hadn't seen them anywhere else until now. Fun.

That's great that Chattanooga has a retailer for liscensed modern furniture. So often all you can find in smaller towns are the knock-offs. Good for them!

I love Blu Dot. Such great design for relatively little money.

Love the image of the Saarinen table surrounded by Thonet chairs. Totally works. All those girly curves and pretty wallpaper too!
Thanks for stopping by to comment on my dilemma - really appreciate it!

Im going to go check out Smart Furniture right now! I love the mix (even thought most of my clients are steeped in traditional !) It's always fun to through something unexpected into a space, and this looks like a great place to get ideas. Thanks for posting!
