The style-savvy staff at Red Tree helps homeowners to embellish abodes with distinct, antique-style décor, solid mahogany furniture, and other regularly changing inventory items imported from around the globe.

Eight showrooms residing on two floors allow shoppers to peruse kitchen, office, and bedroom furniture, mirrors, bookcases, and knick-knacks.

A monthly fixture on WBKI’s Louisville LIVE, D & W Silks outfits under-landscaped homes with silk floral arrangements, silk trees, and aesthetically ascendant interior accessories. Silk bloom bouquets ($9.99–$149) bear an uncanny resemblance to their water-guzzling counterparts but don’t require plant food or regular conversation. Silk trees ($49–$499) are equally self-sufficient, offering to enliven staid, leafless sitting areas for nothing in return except an introduction to the sultry lava lamp. Throughout D & W’s 20,000-square-foot showroom, feng shui neophytes can pick up accessories ($9.99–$199) such as mirrors, pictures, lamps, clocks, and candles, all of which are perfectly smashable items for bored, defeated poltergeists. A friendly, knowledgeable staff is on hand to answer silk-centered questions and help pair patrons with appropriate arrangements.
In-house interior designers guide patrons through the more than 130 glass pendant lights that gleam through a massive array of lighting fixtures at Scorpio Interiors. Barstools and other home furnishings beg to enliven drab rooms, and a mouth-blown glass pendant light ($175) can drench vaulted ceilings in an auburn glow while patrons utilize a Sticks floor lamp ($125) to pole-vault over exposed rafters. The 17-inch Abeni ceramic sculpture ($63) and water-drop bud vase ($24) are tasteful accents to an art collector’s living room, and the alabaster pebbles and manageable flame of a bio-ethanol tabletop fireplace ($269) create an ideal venue for campfire sing-alongs free of Smokey the Bear's off-key howlings. Clients solicit the help of the staff to sift through the 100 barstools, available in 17 metal finishes and 80 fabrics, that freckle the display floor.
