When we were approached by Franklin Bank & Trust for their new location on Lover's Lane in Bowling Green, Kentucky, we knew it was going to be a gorgeous project with many fun surprises throughout the building.
For inspiration, Amber Fry, of Franklin Bank & Trust, said they wanted their offices to be "super functional for our staff but we also wanted them to look nice; not super crazy but modern and still traditional. So that is kind of the inspiration starting off here."
Clarissa Smith opted for more traditional frames for seating but updated the look with more contemporary, and sometimes funky, fabric and patterns. To tie the looks together, a mix of contemporary console tables are throughout the building, while keeping a more traditional, but updated, look for the desks in the offices. The furnishings play off the contemporary lighting that can be found throughout the building, as well as some of the accent walls.
While Ford's Furniture provided all of the lamps, rugs, and accessories, it was important to Franklin Bank & Trust to pay homage to the local community and the local arts; they did so by having a local photographer photograph well known and recognized parts of Warren and Simpson county. "we kept them black and white so they would really tie in no matter what furniture and what pieces we brought in. But we wanted them to still be bold which is why they are blown up so much and our design staff had the idea to put them on the major canvases so that they really pop and bring the space together and show how we want to keep it local," Amber added.
Ford's Furniture is proud to have partnered with Franklin Bank & Trust to make their new location come to life.
