New Space, New Hours
We've moved! But don't worry: we're still in Marathon Village, and we made damn sure to maintain our eclectic and welcoming vibe. This is just a very exciting and natural part of the evolution of D. Luxe Home. Did we mention how exciting this is? Because, in spite of how busy we've been the past month, we've been on Cloud Nine to see this dream grow so big. How big? About three times the size, from 600 square feet to 1,800 square feet.
Just a few months shy of two years in business, we've moved down the hall to Suite 30, a space that we happily redesigned prior to moving in. The new space is also still home to co-owner Dee Bynum's Bynum Residential Design. Click through this quick slideshow to see how our new space evolved over the course of about 10 days. And please come visit us just as soon as you can! Our new hours are as follows:
monday & tuesday: 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.
wednesday - saturday: 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
select sundays: 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
The evolution of D. Luxe Home thus far has been such a surprise. When we signed our first lease at Marathon Village, we moved here just to get Bynum Design out of the house and to have a proper office. When the building owners asked us if we would do some retail, which we hadn’t planned on, we thought, well, Larry (Wilkes, our co-owner) has been in retail all his life, so let's give it a go. We put furniture in here, and all the tourists from Antique Archaeology started coming through. And then they never stopped, so we put all of our furniture in storage and filled the shop with gift items and reclaimed goods and weird stuff. In the meantime, the walls started closing in on us, especially with regards to the Bynum Design side of the business, which simply needed more space to accommodate more employees and more opportunities. At D. Luxe Home, we worked on constantly tweaking our inventory to suit our clientele while always staying true to our tastes. It became a thing. Today, it's a bigger thing--our local clientele is developing right along with the influx of tourists, and our Bynum Design clients are increasingly let us furnish their homes and not just build and design them. For this we are lucky, blessed, and highly favored, and grateful to all of you who have helped see us through this hectic and happy time.
We were beyond thrilled to be included in the October 2014 issue of design: retail magazine.
The pub featured Nashville in an article titled "Music City Metamorphosis," and had this to say about our shop: "Filled with unique gifts, art and lighting fixtures, this tiny trove is tucked away inside historic Marathon Village, formerly the home of the late-19th-century Marathon Motor Works. D. Luxe Home also operates as the office for Nashville-based Bynum Design, which explains why what might be a salvaged hodgepodge elsewhere works beautifully here. Between the hand-scraped hardwoods and the high ceiling beams lie many treasures for anyone looking for something interesting to infuse a little life into their space."
