Southern Vintage: Where Modern and Rustic Meet

Our Broker/ Owner, Dave Parks and John Allgeier, CEO of Southern Vintage recently joined WAVE 3 Listens Live to discuss unique ways to take design, update and beautify your home. 

Southern Vintage uses rustic reclaimed wood from 100 year old barns to create unique furniture, flooring and sidings. They do this to create an unexpected combination of styles, textures, and elements recreated into something new, beautiful and timeless.

"We want to allow customers to have an experience that is not normal in our industry, and that excites us. We're passionate about it." - John Allgeier

That passion carries over into the unique design and styles that Southern Vintage offers. Some of the more unique and beautiful things that the company creates are live edge furniture pieces. Live edge furniture delivers practicality, beauty, warmth and nature all at once. Southern Vintage carefully selects their timber to ensure they can preserve the character of each piece. The rough edges of our furniture are left to be what they were in nature, but we plane the pieces to reveal rich wood grain inside.

"This not only brings value but also brings history, it brings something timeless and it allows people to actually come in and add an essence to a room you cannot get unless it is reclaimed." - John Allgeier 

With Louisville continuing to grow in popularity and homes becoming more and more desirable, there are some unique ways...

Homearama is one of the more popular and heavily attended home design, landscaping and home builders convention in the Louisville metro area. Unforutnately, they have decided to cancel the in-person event in the midset of the COVID-19 health pandemic.

Executive Vice President, Juva Barber explained the virtual event in the press release. “While Homearama won’t be in person this year, you’ll still be able to see the hard work of our members and the latest design trends by taking the virtual tours of each of these nine beautiful homes at beginning July 20, 2020.”

The event is perfect for new and upcoming home buyers and sellers to get an idea of what is important and trendy in the market. These virtual tours will allow the various vendors to show their product in real time and should be even more informative than normal. Bentley Homes, Caliber Homes, Castlebuilt Homes, Joe Kroll Builders, Mason Construction, Mastercraft Homes, Ramage Company and Leo Thieneman & Sons are the builders that have prepared a home for this years event. 


For those people in the Norton Commons area that were looking forward to this event have...

This year Ball Homes rolled out a new series of homes aimed to retain the building integrity, range of features, and warranty coverage buyers have come to expect, but at a lower price point.

Parkside is a conservation subdivision offering lots of open space and a great location next door to McNeeley Lake Park and Quail Chase Golf Course. This beautiful neighborhood design includes a pond and wooded areas in the open spaces. This Mount Washington location is convenient to the Gene Snyder and I-65.

Smart design makes these floor plans versatile and affordable.  Carefully selected contemporary products and designer finishes make them beautiful.
