The 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
