Blair's Home Furnishings.

Blair's Home Furnishings is nestled in the Southside of Chattanooga at the corner of Main and Chestnut.

Owners Jim and Justin Blair also own and operate Blair's Antiques which specializes in personal property appraisals and estate sales.  Through this business they have become specialists in the furniture and home decor arena. 

Jim and Justin opened the second business, Blair's Home Furnishings, on June 15. Their goal with the new storefront was to offer customers a wide variety of home furnishings, decor, local art and more. The store offers handpicked merchandise, including antiques, lighting, industrial decor, collectibles, traditional and mid-century accents, re-purposed goods, locally crafted art, home office, and outdoor/patio furnishings. Unlike retail stores, Blair's offers these gently used items, of the same quality, for a fraction of the price, officials said. 

Current inventory and more information can be found at www.blairshomefurnishings.com
