Our Story

Palette and Parlor Showroom Interior

At Palette & Parlor we believe Danish and Modern furniture blends beautifully in a variety of interiors. We are entrepreneurs and North Carolina natives. We built our business to pair authentic modern design with southern sensibility and a distinctive point of view, and we are here to offer you beautiful, well-made furniture, art, lighting, and accessories.

We are proud to be an authorized dealer for some of the best American and European furniture makers that have stood the test of time, including Knoll, Fritz Hansen, Carl Hansen & Son, Kartell, and Vitra, and to offer local NC-made selections from Precedent Furniture, Enkle Designs, and Haand ceramic porcelain.  We also seek out unique products from newer design talent, like hand-blown glass bubble chandeliers from Brooklyn-based Pelle, and handmade wire outdoor furniture from Los Angeles-based Bend.

We will share where and how each thoughtfully-selected piece is made so you can write your own design story.

We enjoy working with the Trade, and welcome architects and interior designers to our showroom.

We believe in giving back, and will donate a percentage of our profits to Habitat for Humanity to help families build homes.

Join our community of design enthusiasts, interior designers, and architects online, or come by our showroom and studio.

We look forward to meeting you!
