The Design Gallery sources locally and sells globally. The new interior design firm in downtown Hendersonville was launched by Dawn Driskill and Betsy Edwards, who, combined, claim 50 years’ experience in interior and architectural design. Their backgrounds span residential, hospitality, and commercial projects in multiple countries. The business opened in time to ride the wave of the housing market boom, offering multiple opportunities with new properties and renovations. Current jobs include various local residential projects and work in Lake Tahoe, Nevada and Delray Beach, Florida. While the designers offer full-service interior design, their showroom is open for shopping. Driskill and Edwards aim to foster a culture where small businesses support each other, capitalizing on local talent. Through a partnership with The Gallery of Flat Rock, they satisfy a personal desire to support the arts by getting local talent to furnish accent decor, whether it’s a floral arrangement or a kudzu sculpture by Matt Tommey. Inasmuch as possible, they locally-source custom furniture and cabinetry. They are well-connected with industry specialists across the country. For example, they’re an authorized dealer of Hunter Douglas window treatments.
