Though our first home on Main Street in downtown Evansville will always hold a special place in our hearts, we have so much excitement ahead as we make plans for our new store, or as we like to call it, our “Enchanted Home,” in Newburgh. As we embark on a substantial renovation of the 180 year old building, we couldn’t imagine not taking you along with us for the ride.
History at 10388 IN-662 in Newburgh
After acquiring the space from Bill Fortson and John Clements, we learned so much about the history of the former BJ’s Accents property and how their business came to life. BJs was once home to a frame shop, located on the top floor, and a floral shop, located on the lower level before it evolved into a furniture, home accents and interior design business.
And when the historic home was to be demolished, Bill and John had other plans. The two had become friends and worked together at a bank for years, allowing them the opportunity to learn about the property.
Creating a Vision for our new store, our “Enchanted Home”
“To say that we have an exact design in mind… No, we really don’t plan to stay confined to one look,” Tammy reveals. “But, we have so many ideas, hopes and dreams for what the space will become. We plan to appeal to many different aesthetics in our space. We do like a southern living vibe to match the architecture of the building, it has a very Georgian style charm!” We are excited about creating more room for retail space and filling every square inch with the best brands and merchandise. As we take down walls and make the space our own, we’ll also be creating an incredible design center for our team, as well as a place for our team to consult with other designers and clients.
“We have this vision of making Enjole more than just a store… We see it becoming a destination,” shares Tammy. Imagine french doors at the back of the building opening up to an outdoor living space that will be an extension of the store and a place to easily pick up purchased items.
We want our new space to become a hub for designers in surrounding cities to collaborate with us, whether they’re from Louisville, Nashville or beyond.
