Given that SB likes to share inside scoop on fabulous local finds, we’re excited to introduce you to a local artisan who’s not only the real deal when it comes to reclaimed* furniture, but someone to watch: we think this guy’s going to go far! Meet Kidd Epps, the founder and creative talent behind Farmhouse & Company Luxury Interiors. Though reclaimed furniture may be trendy, this Clarksville native’s designs are timeless, rooted in the classic elements and superior craftsmanship that elevate everyday necessities to art.
“I like to use my artistic vision to design fixtures and furniture solutions for my clients,” says Kidd. Here are some representative examples of his problem solving. See for yourself how great it is!
The Farmhouse & Company line includes eleven limited edition products at present, and though many of these pieces are wood, Kidd recently ventured beyond to metalwork, too. Kidd also makes one-of-a-kind pieces on commission for his clients. Ranging from headboards and trestle tables, to mantels and cabinets, not to mention lighting, his finished pieces are as varied as the materials he stumbles upon. “I only build what I’d have in my own home,” he says.
He also does installations, like the reclaimed paneled wall pictured below. Gorgeous!
Surely that’s not all, you say? Here’s how you can see more of Kidd’s work:

Kidd has plans in the works for some pop up shows in the area. Like him on Facebook to stay in touch about where and when he will have his products for sale in the coming months. Also, if you plan to attend the Tomato Art Fest on August 10, look for Kidd and Farmhouse & Company there.
*Note: Exercise caution when buying furniture that claims to be “reclaimed.” Sometimes, new wood is styled and aged (aka distressed) to appear old. Bona fide reclaimed furniture is always made with materials repurposed from another structure.
