Roost
Interior Design and Home Furnishings Store
109 E. BROADWAY AVE., MARYVILLE, TN

Longing to work in the town that raised her, Paula Osborn took the plunge and opened her own business. After spending most of her professional career working in Knoxville, Osborn was just far enough away from her hometown that she missed out on events that were important to her, such as volunteering at school events.

“My vision for ROOST started with the name and definition,” Osborn explained. “ROOST is a verb meaning ‘to become comfortably established in one’s residence or lifestyle.’ It just seemed to fit.”

“The name serves a dual purpose,” she said. “Not only does it describe the design sensibility of the products offered, but it also defines my need to work in the town I grew up in. The tag line of the store is, ‘Come HOME to ROOST,’ which is exactly what I did.”

“Every interior design project we do is different,” she continued. “Some clients need our help from the ground up, while some clients need something as simple as new draperies. I love being home and helping people in Maryville. This is my ultimate dream job.”

“In addition to design services, we have spent lots of time ‘cherry picking’ furniture, lamps, rugs, art and accessory lines to develop a store that offers both a price point and a level of quality and uniqueness that I am proud of,” Osborn said. “I am also honored to represent many fine local and regional artists. Good handmade craft is such a passion of mine.”
