What is Nest Knoxville?


We hand pick Designer Furniture Market Samples and bring them to you at a fraction of the price!

I have been lucky enough to furnish my home (and several of my girlfriends homes!) with designer furniture at a fraction of the price by shopping samples. Couches, love seats, tables, chairs, lamps – you name it. With the support of my family and friends I have opened Nest Knoxville to pass on these great deals to you! If sample furniture is new to you – let me tell you, it’s a secret among many of those in the know. Famous furniture manufacturers make samples of each piece to send to the High Point Market twice a year. The “market” which is held in High Point, NC is the largest home furnishings industry trade show in the world! These samples that are showcased there have all the bells and whistles and many swear the samples are even better quality than that of a custom piece ordered from the exact same manufacturer! Remember this is the piece buyers from all over the world will see when selecting what and how many to stock in their stores, so outfitting a piece with the best materials and all the upgrades available is super important. But, most importantly it is how you get such a great deal by shopping with us!

Who am I?


Growing up in the family furniture business…

Nest Knoxville truly is a dream come true for myself and my husband, Marshall Stair. I was born in Hickory, NC – what is commonly referred to as the “furniture capital of the world”. I have always been so proud to be from an area so widely known for it’s quality and craftsmanship. My parents own and operate a business that provides swatches to the industry and my grandfather also had a similar business, so pairing my love for business and furniture comes very naturally. I moved to Knoxville in 2002 to attend The University of Tennessee. After graduating with a degree in Accounting and Finance and moving along in the corporate world for 10 years, I never lost my love of furniture. It was a dream that I always talked about, but truthfully never had the guts to do until I met Marshall (sappy, I know). Marshall comes from a long line of Knoxvillians. His great-grandfather worked for White Lily Flour, his grandfather worked for Standard Knitting Mills and his mother and father have been active in the community for decades. Marshall works as an attorney for Lewis Thomason by day and serves as on the Knoxville City Council by night. After getting married in December 2015, we decided it was time to stop talking and start doing and we began looking for a storefront. Marshall has a deep commitment to the city and has always believed in the importance of a thriving downtown. So, when we found the perfect space on the most iconic block in Knoxville, we knew we couldn’t pass it up. We opened a few short months later and haven’t look back! We are very excited to be a part of all the exciting things that are happening downtown and hope that you will come see us!

See you soon,
