of contemporary, timeless, and farmhouse furnishings, along with  home décor, gifts, artwork, hand-made jewelry, apparel & accessories, and much more!

 

Our

Aesthetic

Our showroom floor,

which was originally the historic Banner Elk Glove Factory,  

offers customers a wide range of fine gifts along with a mix of furniture and home décor pieces. 

 

Our style is timeless, authentic, inspired, unexpected and fresh. The shop also offers one of a kind objects from local artisans along with a selection of organic soaps & hand poured candles.

Creative Director

John Michael Rhem, Creative Director for the new Great Train Robbery, has always believed in a simple, yet timeless aesthetic. His passion is creating functional spaces while remaining contemporary and inspired. 

 

With a strong background in interior design and after working in Miami's design center, John Michael returned to the mountains of North Carolina as a graduate of Appalachian State University to bring the High Country a fresh concept on modern farmhouse design.

John Michael is responsible for designing our ever-changing showroom, sourcing new products, and working one-on-one with clients to create their own inspired spaces.
