Texas born, California raised, and reinvented in the South, furniture designer Heather Daily has seen her adopted hometown of Nashville, TN grow into a vibrant, modern city in the 30 years she's lived there.
“I’m inspired by the rejuvenation and the revival of style found throughout the southern United States,” she says. “I’ve used that as inspiration in designing a line of home furnishings that encompass the redefinition of elegant comfort.”
The Jarrett Bay Home Collection
From the very start of our partnership with Jarrett Bay Home, Charleston Forge’s commitment has been to develop a line of furniture with a coastal aesthetic, whose designs are inspired by the beauty of Jarrett Bay Boats, and the lifestyle they represent. We achieve this by designing furniture inspired by maritime elements and features found on Jarrett Bay Boats. These range from subtle interpretations of the Carolina Flare bow's elegant curve, to the silhouette of the Tuna Tower, and the sculptural beauty of the humble boat cleat and propeller.
The Greenbrier Lifestyle Collection
Nestled in the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia, The Greenbrier is a world-renowned resort and National Historic Landmark that has been welcoming guests from around the world since 1778. The natural mineral springs that drew the first guests more than 235 years ago continue to lure visitors to the 11,000-acre luxury retreat. Charleston Forge is proud to be partnering with The Greenbrier to create home furnishings that reflect the beauty, quality, and appreciation of the finer things in life that this beautiful locale represents.
