Platt Home Opens in Brevard
Issue: Whats News
Just in time for home decorating projects big and small, Platt Home opens an expansive showroom at 214 Broad Street in downtown Brevard.
If the last year of Covid-restrictions and home-quarantining to just this side of madness has left you considering, really considering, your house and its problems and possibilities, then the opening of Platt Home in Brevard is a welcome dose of Spring-time Good News.
The 2,500-square-foot showroom is the natural extension of PLATT, a leading architecture, construction, and interior design firm and is located at 214 South Broad Street in downtown Brevard.
Platt Home will feature a thoughtfully curated collection of furniture, lighting, rugs, pillows, antiques, accessories, and more. The showroom will offer custom upholstered furniture from Lee, Lancaster, La Lune, Verellen, and Four Hands, as well as Platt Home’s own private label collection.
The showroom will be supported by an online store to be launched later this year. You can sign-up for updates and news atplatthome.us.
Platt Home President Parker Platt has long understood the connection between the physical structure of a home and what’s contained within it.
“My dad is a gifted architect, and my mom, Cindy Platt, had a great eye and really knew how to bring spaces to life,” he says. “So, I grew up in a household where art and design were always connected in a meaningful way.”
Working alongside his father and PLATT founder, Al Platt, Parker internalized many of the principles the elder Platt brought to his designs.
“Our work at PLATT has always centered on creating homes that make people feel comfortable – on creating spaces that nurture a sense of belonging, that connect people to the environment and to the materials that surround them” said Platt. “If you fill a home up with things that don’t have a connection or meaning, you can lose what it is you’re looking for. It’s hard for good architecture to overcome a bad interior. But a good interior can really improve average architecture.”
Platt Home is a natural outgrowth of PLATT’s interior design division, which was created in 2016 to serve the needs of its architectural clients.
The experience of realizing both the building and its interior design was rewarding and successful for the firm and led to the creation of its interior design division. Today, many of PLATT’s architectural clients use the firm’s interior design services, led by Interior Director Katie P. Jackson.
“Interior design clients really need to be able to see, feel, and experience products and textures firsthand,” said Platt. “Previously, that involved having to make trips to showrooms in Atlanta or Charlotte. We decided that with a little investment, we could do it right here on a small scale instead. It’s more convenient for our clients and provides local shoppers something new and different.”
