Modern with Manners

"Modernism means freedom—freedom to mix, to choose, to change, to embrace the new
but to hold fast to what is good."
                                -Edward Wormley (1907 –1995)

At E.T. Burk we strive to do the same.

The 5000 sq. ft. gallery focuses on the best vintage and contemporary design from mid-twentieth century to today. The designers all have something in common. They knew/know a simple truth: Furniture is useless if people don’t want to live with it.

We wouldn’t either.

We proudly feature the work of the purveyors and innovators of the modern Furniture movement. Edward Wormley, T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, Tommi Parzinger, George Nakashima, Finn Juhl, Hugh Acton, Milo Baughman, Paul Frankl and others. Their work is both stubbornly traditional and visionary at the same time. It is humbled by the work of the past and confident enough to take it forward. Their creations have a traditional soul with salt on them.

E.T. Burk offers a nod to those visionaries and presents them to Nashville . What we don’t present is retro, fifties or kitschy. That's some other stores job. We are furniture for those of discerning taste in all budgets.

At E.T. Burk we do modern with manners. We are grateful for the opportunity to work around it everyday.

We hope you will find the same living with it.
