Local Farrow & Ball Store Opened its Doors on January 25th, Kicking Off The Knoxville Design Collective Era



The eagerly anticipated Farrow & Ball Stocking Store opened its doors on January 25th, marking the first of many luxury brands to become part of the Knoxville Design Collective. The Farrow & Ball stocking store is owned by the dynamic partnership of Diana Warner Tennessee and Lyon Brands, LLC, this exquisite store promises to redefine the local shopping experience for designers and public alike when it comes to paint and wallpaper.

The Knoxville Design Collective, slated to introduce new brands throughout 2024 and achieve full occupancy by 2025, is envisioned as a haven for designers, builders, and architects. Providing a sophisticated workroom filled with luxury brands, it offers a space where professionals can meet clients, conduct meetings, place orders, and network with likeminded peers. The Collective is poised to be a hub for educational events, lunch and learns, cocktail parties, and much more.

Membership applications are currently open for both trade and displaying members, with endless perks awaiting both categories. Leading the board of directors is Sheryl Linck of The Trust Company, whose love for the design world and exceptional leadership skills are expected to steer the Knoxville Design Collective and its members to great heights.

Excitement abounds as the Farrow & Ball Stockist claims its spot as the first store to open. Previously available at Diana Warner Knoxville, this sought-after paint now has its own home. Diana Warner shared, “Location was everything. We wanted to be in the midst of builders and design firms, yet accessible. Away from downtown Knoxville, this location allows us to receive large deliveries without a challenge. We are thrilled to grow with the Knoxville Design Collective.” The Knoxville Design Collective is located at 320 Nancy Lynn Lane, suite 1, 37919.

When asked about venturing into paint, Diana expressed her artistic lineage, stating, “I come from a long line of artists, and my mother, a partner at Diana Warner Tennessee, is a fantastic painter. Farrow & Ball paint provides quality beyond any on the market, and it’s healthier to work with and live amongst.”

Looking ahead, Diana envisions showcasing not only paint but also the handcrafted wall coverings they provide. The goal is to create a space where designers and artists can collaborate on new projects. Additionally, the team has aspirations to become employers of special needs adults in the future.
