First off… We could not be more thrilled about our new space. It finally feels like we are home and we are hitting the ground running!! With all the excitement buzzing around here we wanted to give you a tour, show you our space and just what goes on inside of it.

Fun fact! Our new building used to be known as “The Pepper Patch” which for years sold jams, jellies, and Tennessee Tipsy Cakes. But many longtime Franklin residents can recall when it was The Grassland General Store. It is fun to think about the history in these walls that surround us.

Within our new space we have distinct areas that are unique to what we do here at Interior Anthology.  We invite you to come along and see just what they are!

Design Studio – Our design studio is where the designers find inspiration, design and make our clients dreams come true! We have a few different areas that fall into this space which have a specific role in our daily routine and design process.

Our most prized area (for us designers) is the home to all our design resources… this is our design library  and home base. We had the opportunity to work with Fresh Space to get the library together and in top notch shape. They have organized us from top to bottom and left to right. Every designer dreams to have a space like this to store fabrics, tile, books, wallpaper samples and so much more!! You will find us in this area a lot. We come to this space to find inspiration, materials, and collaborate ideas on a project.

When we are not in the library pulling finishes or collaborating on a project you will find us nestled in our offices working on drawings, selections, specifications and a lot of behind the scenes design work. While designing this area of the design studio, it was important to our principal designer that our offices had ample working space, all while feeling inspirational and motivating.

Our conference room is where we get to communicate all our wonderful ideas to our clients, meet with new vendors and take time to touch base as a team. It is so nice to have a space designated for communication. The daily dose of sunshine this room gets is also a plus!
