Dwellings | Inspired Home

I visited with Chris at Dwellings over the weekend to see what modern and eclectic furnishings he had in his current warehouse showroom. One of the items I discovered was a cool, sleeper sofa shown in bottom left photo. I know many folks, including myself, struggle to find one that is modern, comfortable and affordable. This one looks good. There is still an assortment of items that combine mid-century elements with rustic finishes — perfect for Asheville. Chris says he has new containers coming next month so be sure to stop by this winter. For hours and location click here.Dwellings Comp

Roger and I were on a mission this past Saturday to find a craftsman to fabricate a modern daybed for our office. Chris McMillan’s latest adaptation of his showroom, Dwellings, offers a variety of home furnishing vendors within one store that specialize in eclectic, modern and industrial style furnishings. Not expecting to walk in and find exactly what we wanted, we stopped by to see if there was someone who could make us something custom to fit our specific needs. Two hours later a rental truck was following us home with our new industrial daybed. Cool!


As always, I was impressed with the well curated collection assembled by Chris and others. Its a shopping experience that offers a sense of discovery, an inspiration for good design and great values. (Don’t miss the lamp shades!) If I don’t leave having purchased something I always leave with a smile on my face given my experience as a customer. Haven’t been? Click here for details.
