The Hall House

It's not often that we install window treatments to almost the whole of an entire house, but here you can see we did just that! These drapes were designed by Whitley and Co. Interior Design and hand-sewn by our wonderful seamstresses at Kings Interiors.

Thankfully, we were able to put the finishing touches on this simple breakfast room! There's just something about a set of drapes that offers a room completion and comfort!

We were, and are still, in LOVE with these living room drapes! It's wonderful to see how much life they brought to this room!

We're fairly convinced that chevron will NEVER go out of style. And Mrs. Hall, the happy homeowner, completely and boldly agrees! This chevron pattern adds a modern, playful vibe to this dining room, and we believe it was definitely the right choice!

 

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we're thankful for clients like Whitley and Co! We're proud to partner with them in offering their wonderful residential clients top-notch, custom window treatments. We couldn't be more happy with how these particular window treatments turned out and thankfully, the homeowner agrees!

Honoring Our Veterans Today and Everyday

tonyandkenneth.jpg

It seems to be the norm for veterans to respectfully decline a detailed description of their experience in the service. But we're glad to have heard even a portion of the stories of our very own Kenneth and Tony! 

Kenneth (left) honorably served in the Navy and comes from a family of 6 boys, all veterans, all returned home safely. They fought in wars from WW2 to Korea to Vietnam. He was stationed in the 7th Fleet on the USS Windham County in 1960. We are so thankful for Kenneth at Kings not only for his flawless upholstery work, but for his dutiful willingness to serve our country with the Navy. We find it invaluably important to recognize Kenneth's achievements in the Navy today and everyday!

Tony (right) served the US in Vietnam for 2 dedicated years. He told us that he was reluctant to be drafted into the Army at first, but in hindsight, he is very glad to have served our country, and takes pride in having done so. He was 19 when he was drafted and had never been out of Middle Tennessee in his life. He "didn't know nothin' about nothin'!" Needless to say, he definitely experienced some sort of culture shock in Vietnam. He revealed to us that 2 of his best school buddies passed away while in Vietnam, and we find it important to honor them, their willingness to serve, and their memories today as well. 

We couldn't be more humbled by, thankful for, and proud of our veterans here at Kings. Today, we honor the men and women who give and have given their time, energy, and lives to serve the United States of America so boldly and willingly.

The Exceptionally Rare, Emotion Evoking Sofa

50scouch.jpg

It's not often that we receive pieces of furniture from time periods where furniture makers refused to skimp on the foundation of their products. In the 50's and 60's, furniture makers took their time investing in the proper, most effective techniques of furniture construction.  Since then, companies have found quicker, more efficient ways to construct pieces of furniture. Though it may initially reduce the cost of home decor on your bank statement, it in turn reduces the lifespan of each piece of furniture, inevitably leading to the necessity of a replacement. ($$$$)

In between updating our Facebook page, shooting photos of our current projects, and flitting around the office as our resident social butterfly, I frequently find myself spending time within our workrooms just admiring the way in which our expert craftsmen operate on a day to day basis. I watch and revel as they take immense pride in their expertise, begging for the opportunity to instill some sort of upholstery-related knowledge into my head - just so I'll be able to comprehend the magnitude of their abilities. I watch as my boss oversees his employees producing the quality of work that lines up with his specific ideals. It is not unlike the captain of a family owned deep sea fishing company watching his son manning the helm successfully for the first time during a violent, raging storm. That emotion- pride, humility, joy- translates well for the way in which our founder, Tony, watches over his hired craftsmen, simply because the quality of their work has earned his undivided, unwavering respect. 

The parallel of respect can be drawn in that Tony allows his men to restore epically important personal projects for him, such as the couch we are currently speaking of. It is a sofa that has maintained its integrity through the years simply because of its strong foundation. It is a rarity that boasts its worth to restore and pay a potential premium for said restoration, rather than purchasing a cheaper equivalent. 

When this piece came to us, we could tell that at some point along the line, someone had recovered it and replaced the back cushions with ill-fitting, stiff replacements. This couch, originally, was intended to cause an inevitable snooze by its cushioned, comfortable bottom and back cushions. You can see in the photo above that whoever restored this sofa before it landed in our workroom constructed the cushions in such a way that they failed to span the entire length of the sofa . Thankfully, though, our craftsmen constructed new cushions and replaced the fabric, offering this sofa a chance to beautify any sitting room once again. 

We, clearly, are a fan of great, thorough construction. And we favor pieces that evoke the passion that reminds us of why we entered this business in the first place. Though this couch may not look like the home decor goddess that we're accusing her of being, to us - she is a beacon of importance.

Residential Spotlight: Lindsay Powell

Lindsay Powell came to us at Kings armed with a couple questions, a few yards of fabric and 2 chairs. Her questions: Can you do this? Would this work?

Our answer? ABSOLUTELY!

Lindsay and her husband previously dwelled in a small condo and were unable to decorate as freely as they would have liked to. Now that they've upgraded to a house here in Nashville, they've seized the opportunity to decorate as boldly as they see fit! To compliment their newly decorated space, Lindsay decided that statement pieces were needed to see their living room come together as their minds had imagined. She chose 2 contrasting fabrics that create an edgy, eclectic feel and will no doubt make the statement she was searching for!

This is what we love about our residential clients. Every idea they bring to our door stems from a creative thought and we get the opportunity bring that idea to life! Our in-house fabric studio harbors the potential for thousands of unique, one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture or window treatments just waiting to spice up your home. We're so glad that Lindsay entrusted us with her fantastic creative idea!

New Building, New Employees, New Business!

New Building, New Employees, New Business!

Well, BIG THINGS are happening at Kings Interiors this week! Over the weekend while most people were relaxing, watching football, and stuffing their faces with nachos, we were moving! We recently acquired a brand new building (well, brand new to us) directly behind our existing location. We couldn't be more excited about the idea of 3x the space! 3x the space means an incredible opportunity to grow and meet customer needs more efficiently and effectively. 

One of the benefits of gaining this exceptional amount of space is the ability to introduce the idea of a SHOW ROOM to Kings Interiors! The most frequently asked question regarding our business is "Do you guys have a show room?" We now have the option to respond with "We're working on it!" instead of a disappointed "Nope." We're excited about this new adventure, but the showroom is a long way away from being complete. It is currently housing rolls upon rolls of fabric, just longing to be made beautiful!  Thankfully, we've come armed with vision and design ideas to impress and thrill the masses! 

In other news, we're thrilled to introduce the newest additions to our team! Rachel came on board as our Operations Coordinator and has been revamping production here at Kings Interiors since day one! Sammy joined our team as the Marketing Coordinator and is responsible for all of those silly Facebook Posts you've been seeing recently, along with coordinating all marketing/advertising efforts! (Don't be surprised that she's shamelessly asking you to like our facebook page!)   

Stay tuned for upcoming happenings here at Kings Interiors!
