Introducing James Freeman Interiors & Gifts

By Barrie Fisher

James Freeman Interiors26 Gifts copyLike so many, I was blessed with a true life mentor in my grandmother Dean.  As a young child, she shared her passion for fabrics, colors, sewing, and design.  I started my career in interior design by sewing custom draperies on Dean’s sewing machine, which I now display in the store as a reminder of how she inspired me.  After acquiring considerable experience working from North Carolina to Florida during the last 25 years, I have gained the support and encouragement to launch James Freeman Interiors & Gifts located at 108 S. Gay Street in downtown Knoxville.

At James Freeman, you’ll discover a treasure trove of lovely accessories and art for your home, as well as a wonderful selection of gifts for the holidays or any occasion that you’ll not likely find elsewhere.  I have shopped markets throughout the U.S. to bring you truly creative and inspired giftware that will be cherished for many years to come. In store you’ll find exquisite yet affordable glassware and pottery, seasonal-inspired candles, preserved botanicals and floral arrangements, as well as fabrics, rugs, drapery panels, custom furnishings, an array of lamps, and much more.

In addition, James Freeman is home to our interior design services, where we begin the unique process of discovering each individual’s design tastes and preferences, from the consultation and the floor plans to the finishes and furniture.  At James Freeman, we take an integrated approach to each design project.  We take the confusion out of interior design and listen carefully to help you achieve your vision. It is a privilege for me to mentor two very special and talented in-house designers, Ethan York Adams and Jen Kenley, whose unique talents I look forward to introducing our clients to.  Our team approach to interior design will transform your home into a sanctuary.

All of us would like to personally invite you to visit us in historic downtown Knoxville to discover all that James Freeman Interiors & Gifts has to offer.  We’re just minutes from where you live, and there’s plenty of on-street and nearby parking.  For more information, including directions, visit or give us a call at 865-522-3230.
