The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Find Design Inspiration in Louisville


4. Insider’s Tip

Bittners offers Old World craftsmanship in custom designs.  

If you’re serious about finding unique furnishings but keep coming up empty-handed elsewhere, take your search to the next level with the experts at 150-year-old, full-service interior design firm Bittners. Started by a German immigrant as a one-man cabinetmaker, the in-house custom wood-working shop now turns out one-of-a-kind dining tables in their showroom. Don’t see something you fancy? Create it yourself—they specialize in custom-made orders like a 45-foot reclaimed-wood banquet table made for a nearby horse farm. (Ask for a behind-the-scenes peek to see chairs and tables being sawed, carved, and crafted.) Or go all the way and hire one of the twenty interior designers for a full home redesign—they’ll jet around the country sourcing reclaimed wood, egg chairs, and whatever else your style calls for.
