Bliss Home expands into new market

Knoxville-based Bliss Home furniture store recently announced that the company is expanding and will open its first location in Louisville, Kentucky in Westport Village. It is the retailer’s first expansion outside of the Tennessee market. Bliss Home is expected to open its doors in Spring of 2017 in the site formerly occupied by Gattiland at 1108 Lyndon Lane in Louisville.

Bliss Home in Westport Village will feature 24,000 square feet of casual contemporary furniture for your living room, bedroom, dining room and office. They will also feature regional products, art and accessories. Bliss Home also has a staff of designers who can go on-site to revamp client homes through their In-Home Design program.

“We absolutely fell in love with Louisville during one of our many visits here. We have been so impressed with the southern hospitality of the tenants at Westport Village. It’s one of the main reasons we chose this location,” said owners and husband and wife team of Scott Schimmel and Lisa Sorensen. “Like our philosophy, Westport Village has a strong focus on a small store feel and a sense of community. This was an easy decision and we knew this was a market where we could build on our success and support our new neighbors at Westport Village.”

The couple opened the first of the Bliss stores in 2003 in Knoxville, Tennessee.
