Knoxville Interior Designers

Making exceptional design a part of everyday life.

Our goal at DESIGN AF is to make the design process as smooth as possible for our clients.  From new construction projects being led by a builder or contractor, to furniture outfitting projects led by us, we want you to have fun.  Creating a new cohesive vision or helping bring yours to life is what we do.

Bring Life & Value to Your Space.

DESIGN AF’s team has been in the construction industry collectively for over a decade.  We want to use our relationships with local and global vendors to help you become fully immersed in the process.  We are experts in interior architecture, project management, and product specification and will guide you from start to finish.

Design AF creates functional, timeless spaces.

DESIGN AF does not have one specific style.  We are constantly doing market research to find new ways to bring a space to life while paying homage to historic architectural styles.  We are passionate about design and love what we do.

Interior Design Services

Kitchen Design

 We create beautifully functional kitchens by designing custom cabinets and countertops, make appliance and plumbing specifications, and make all details specific to you.  We show these designs in both 2D and 3D.

furniture selection

We take extra care in styling a home with finishing details.  We create a spreadsheet of recommended furnishings accompanied by mood boards to help you make selections.

luxury rentals

We specialize in creating a turn-key rental for you as an investment.  This can range from renovation of an existing property to design and construction of a new home.  We then furnish and fully outfit this rental to managed by you or a third party company.

project management

We have a unique understanding of the construction industry at DESIGN AF.  We enjoy working with real estate developers and property owners to help them budget and manage their construction projects.

Space Planning

We use state of the art 2D programs to map out floor plans, elevations, and reflected ceiling plans of your space and give you a visual representation of what it could look like.  These plans can then be used to further the design.

Bathroom Design

By taking on site measurements we can create plans for your dream bathroom.  We will make all selections of tile, plumbing, and lighting to create a cohesive space for you.

custom homes

If you’re working with a custom home builder and haven’t hired an interior designer, give us a call!  We are here to guide you and be your advocate throughout each step of the way.  We will assist with all of the selections that need to be made while keeping an eye out for key times


Decorating may not be all we do, but we sure love to do it!  We can assist staging just one room, or an entire home, and accent completely with artwork and decor. This can be for personal use, or staging for a real estate photo shoot.



We use state of the art 3D modeling programs to map out your space with materials and details to show you what your space would look like in real life.  We can even build multiple iterations to show you what kind of options you have.

Residential Renovation

Whether you have a contractor or need us to provide the labor, we can renovate anything.  Let us draft out plans, show you renderings, and make all of the necessary selections.

Commercial Design

Whether your space just needs an update or you are rebranding your business, DESIGN AF can help.  We take on commercial projects of all shapes and sizes. We can assist with anything from offices, healthcare, multi-family apartments, and retail.

custom casework

We work with both local and national vendors to create custom casework that fits your needs.  This could be as small as a few built in shelves, designing custom kitchen cabinets, or custom closets and shelving systems.
