Bringing Southern Charm Home

by Shannon Pennell 

I love to travel in the South. Southerners have the best accents, the yummiest food, and offer the most gracious hospitality. I’ve recently spent time in Franklin, Tennessee and I have fallen in love with the architecture and design of the area. There’s just something warm and inviting about old brick buildings, worn wood beams and arched windows. Whether it’s the beautiful neighborhoods or the antique shops on Main Street, the entire area has a relaxed traditional feel that makes you want to stay just a bit longer. 

The good news is that you don’t have to move to Franklin, Tennessee to create a comfortable casual look in your home. Universal Furniture’s Curated Collection gives you an eclectic mix of old and new. Described as “a collection of thought wrapped in comfortable chaos”, the Curated Collection has all the elements needed to create a well-loved, relaxed home. Universal offers beautiful upholstered pieces in soft velvets and rich Belgian linens. The case pieces are in a variety of woods and metals, many with washed finishes and warm patina. The unexpected touches will give your home an inviting, collected look. Create the home of your dreams with Universal’s Curated Collection.
