In the grand scheme of interior design, corporate offices don't tend to take the cake.

Loft Living with Mark McKnight

  • Author: Maggie
  • Posted: Friday, October 17, 2014
  • Share:

Storage and style are the most eye-catching elements in Rock/Creek marketing guru and RootsRated founder Mark McKnight's loft, located in the heart of Downtown Chattanooga. Warm tones and modern lines are on display at every turn. Even though Mark's home is impeccably curated, the open-space loft has presented some difficulties. He states "a big, open loft reveals everything at once, which can be a bit overwhelming and chaotic." He has combated this predicament by filling his home with quality pieces rather than cluttering the space with quantity. He organically creates defined sub-spaces by ingeniously using shelves and bookcases as barriers.

Shape up Your Space

I confess: I have a split personality when it comes to furniture. I've always loved the look of tight upholstery and crisp, straight lines. But at the same time I remember flopping into my Grandfather's huge, overstuffed, nap-worthy recliner. It felt good. But it looked terrible. Cringe-worthy. Fugly. Was it even worth all that extra padding if it wasn't worth looking at?

Sectionals and small spaces just don't mix ... right? Wrong. For so long, we have all complied with the design idea that large furniture pieces will just clutter an apartment. But it is time for us to embrace change because sectionals might just become your small space go-to seating arrangement after this blog post.

Top Sleeper Sofas

  • Share:

At Smart Furniture, we're redefining the way you feel about sleeper sofas. We understand that those two words can often cause traumatic flashbacks to childhood vacations when you were duped into believing you'd finally get your own "bed" - when in reality all you got was a thin, creaky mattress that had been kept hidden away from the world by tacky upholstered seat cushions and metal springs that hurt almost as bad as knowing you had been shafted.

Eames Lounge Chair ... in Ebony

The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman is a modern classic. It's never been equaled, never been surpassed from concept to execution. Sure, it's been copied (or, to put it delicately, "knocked off"). But a copy is just that - a shadow of the real thing.
