Putting “Design” into “Consign”ment

When my spouse and co-owner, David, and I first launched Consign To Design almost three years ago, we were confident that East Tennesseans would respond favorably to the opportunity to purchase quality, gently used, brand-name furniture, art, and home décor items at prices of up to 75% off retail. What we did not anticipate, however, was that owners of $500,000+ homes and estates would look to Consign To Design to help them sell entire households of furniture resulting from downsizing, relocations, or estate sales.

Here’s an example. We recently sold an entire one-and-a-half year old Henredon living room suite for a couple that was relocating to another couple who had just purchased a waterfront home in Rarity Bay. The savings was 60%.

But selling gently used furniture, art, and home décor items is not without its challenges. One of our principle objectives at Consign To Design is to assist our customers in visualizing just how an individual furniture piece or an entire living room or dining room suite might appear in their home. That’s why we create individual vignettes throughout our 10,000 square foot showroom.

To help provide the best service to our customers, we have added Sher Hutchins, a local interior designer, to our staff. Sher, owner of Cent$ible Interiors, has nearly two decades of home interior design experience in addition to her visual merchandise experience from one of the nation’s leading department stores.

Sher is a great asset for us and is a wonderful resource for our customers. Not only does she help create tasteful vignettes throughout our showroom, but she is available in-store on Thursday and Friday afternoons. She is always happy to offer her expertise to our clients and is available to assist you with any questions you may have.

For larger projects, Sher is available independently for in-home consultations, including interior design, color consultations, window treatment design and fabrication, recycling and repurposing, and as a personal shopper. Her contact number is 865-607-0488. Sher is just one more example of how we have put the “design” into “consign”ment.

Consign To Design… where brand spanking used means savings of up to 75% on quality, gently used, brand-name furniture, art, and home décor items.
