NASHVILLE RECYCLES LUXURY, JUNE 8, 2021

Textures Flooring. Couture & Construction Podcast
On May 20th we had the pleasure of being invited to Nashville for the Couture and Construction podcast produced by Textures Flooring. Since 2004, Textures Nashville has established a solid reputation as the South’s premier supplier of wide-plank hardwood flooring, custom area rugs, and much more. Special thanks to Sarah Robertson at Studio Dearborn for mentioning and tagging Renovation Angel on her Instagram (90K+ followers), that got their attention!
Hosted by owner Andrew Denny, we talked about our founding story and the ultimate goal to recycle all 100,000 luxury kitchens being thrown out annually. We discussed our donors – ranging from Forbes 400 billionaires and high-net-worth homeowners, to sports and entertainment families, and how they find us through their architects or designers.
As Andrew and I spoke about the sustainability partnerships, he became very interested in making Textures our latest green partner. Listen to the Couture and Construction Podcast (also available on Spotify).
Nashville Design Collective
Textures’ Nashville showroom is centered in the new Nashville Design Collective, a gorgeous multi-showroom building created by Matthew Quinn and Anne Puricelli. Both Matthew and Anne have been supporters of Renovation Angel for several years.
The Nashville Design Collective, which opened in January 2021 with 15 showrooms in a 45,000 sq. ft. space, offers discerning homeowners and trade professionals access to the finest collection of premium brands.
“There has been a huge surge in Nashville’s population growth and there has never been a destination for design sourcing,” says Anne Puricelli, a co-owner of the collective. But as the collective grows, Puricelli hopes she will be able to fill that void.
The “stars aligned” as our podcast and the NDC’s Spring Fling Cocktail Party grand opening was the same day. There was great food and company, and we got to see many old design friends and Renovation Angel partners.
Design Galleria Kitchen and Bath Studio
Matthew Quinn, the leading luxury kitchen designer in the United States, opened a second stunning Design Galleria showroom (the first one is in Atlanta, GA). Design Galleria has been working with Renovation Angel since 2013 on projects ranging from the Kips Bay Showhouse in New York, to showroom remodels and client-donor projects.
When we met with Richard Anuskiewicz, award-winning kitchen designer at Design Galleria’s Nashville showroom at NDC, we got a nice surprise – the opportunity to recycle Richard’s personal kitchen!
Our first Nashville tour was “out of this world.” We can't wait to get back!
