FOR SALE | Bert King Mid-Century | 4 Kent Place

Com[pTake a look at this cool, Bert King designed home in North Asheville that Kelly and I just listed. This mid-century, contemporary has naturally flowing living spaces on an almost one acre private lot. The relaxed home begins with a 3650 sqft. main home with master on main level and multiple living spaces for your creative endeavors. Over the garage is a luxurious 542 sqft. guest suite or studio with a walk in closet and generous bath. The apartment comes plumbed for a kitchen if desired. The lush wooded lot embraces you with privacy, but could be thinned for year round mountain views to the south and west. If you are looking for both a convenient and peaceful escape come and see this graceful home. In the meantime take the virtual tour. Cheers!

the Asheville House | Opening Night

IMG_5944The mid-century planets aligned this week conjuring up two new furniture stores. Last night Kelly, Chett and I were invited to the Grand Opening of the Asheville House in Black Mountain. With the growing interest in modern, retailers Charlotte and Lincoln Walters decided to launch their mid-century styled new home furnishings store in a beautifully restored carriage house in downtown. They describe the electric mix as representative of Asheville where rustic meets refined and organic meets industrial.

The three of us bumped into Robert from Splurge who provided a few of his visionary light fixtures for the retailer. None of us won the Mies van der Rohe chair they were raffling off with proceeds supporting the Black Mountain Center for the Arts. Still, it was a fun night and gave us the opportunity to catch up with some clients in our sister city to the East. Make sure you go soon. Cheers! Troy

Atomic Furnishings + Design | Grand Opening

IMG_0373I stopped by to visit with Hannah, Megan and Todd yesterday as they put the finishing touches on their new showroom, Atomic Furnishing & Design. Their mid-century furnishings shop will open this Saturday the 16th. The doors open at noon, but the festivities are between 5 and 8pm. Kelly, Chett and myself {the other Mod Squad} will no doubt be crashing it.

Todd and Megan combined forces having both been individual pickers of mid-century modern. Megan is an interior designer and Todd a carpenter and furniture restorer. Hannah, a Doula, brought her caring sense, natural style and handiwork skills in refinishing and upholstery. The trio combined and originally opened a booth in Screen Door, but success led them seeking wider spaces. They are now in Woodfin at 115 Elk Mountain. IMG_0374Stop by this Saturday for their debut and chat them up about their Paul McCobb chairs or their interior design. See you there! Troy
