Dwellings is an eclectic home furnishings store in Biltmore Station, along the river’s edge of Biltmore Village. Owner, Chris McMillan, has been growing and nurturing his business for six years, having spent 20 years employed in the furniture business. He expresses the style of his shop as “Soft Modern”.
When Dwellings first opened it featured smaller gift products. After Chris started importing display pieces from India, the shop quickly evolved into a one-of-a-kind furniture showroom displaying upholstered furniture, modern lamps, industrial finds, large-scale graphic art and the original, hand-made display pieces manufactured in India.
It is apparent upon entering Dwellings that Chris has an eye for creating rooms that are both modern and fresh, yet reflect history and warmth. The space feels more like a home than a retail shop with pieces that Chris has meticulously collected for the past several years. Whether it is a simple sectional to anchor a living space, a 100 year-old industrial cart for coffee service, art books or your Doc Martin boots, it is a experience of discovery. So, when you want to add comfort and a timeless quality to your new, modern condominium or a clean modern style to your craftsman home…his selection works.
Offerings and Services: design services, free-local delivery, friendly customer service, great shopping environment and complete mix of products including custom upholstery.
What make Dwellings unique: one-of-a-kind pieces – both new and old, custom designed and hand-made furnishings from India. (text and photos by Troy Winterrowd)
