Hard To Find In Nashville – A Shopping Guide

Nashville has some amazing home decor retailers, but they may be a bit hard to find. Follow along to see what we’ve stumbled upon….

IKEA in Nashville!

No, not really…but the next best thing! If you are one of thousands of Nashvillians that ask, “When are we getting an IKEA?”, it may be a while. Until then, you can still get your IKEA fix at ModerNash.
Founded in 2007, ModerNash has become the go-to-guys for those must have items. Anything you can find in the catalog or website, can be purchased, assembled and delivered by our favorite Nashville find. They even stock some of IKEA’s most popular items in store.
ModerNash offers a user-friendly website with fees clearly posted. ModerNash also offers assembly of other box store furnishings such as Pottery Barn, West Elm and many more. (Click photo to view ModerNash website)

“Custom” Hardwood Floors

The Providential Collection is a collection of made-to-order hardwood flooring. I recently had the pleasure of meeting with the owner of Providential Products. Steve Smith is a California native, but now calls Nashville home. He has brought with him 30 years experience working with colors, pigments, glazes, dyes, milling and lumber expertise combined with a “furniture quality” approach that makes the “Providential Collection” unlike any other hardwood flooring available in the country.
These floors are “custom” and require 6-8 weeks for delivery. The price ranges from $11-$20 a square foot for this amazing product. Please contact Steve Smith of Providential Products at 714-585-4445 or visit the website by clicking the image. View the Product Gallery…my favorite…European Oak.
