Sergeant Dining Table by Scout Design

Scout Design is a design showroom that sells everything from furniture to pop art to life-size zebra sculptures – and their brand is as bold as their pieces.

On their website, you’ll find phrases like, “We’re not for everyone. Neither are you,” “Brassy and sassy,” and, “Blanche is back. Here for a good time, not a long time.”

Scout Design launched in 2012 by Flann Harris and Tiffany Taylor, the design duo entered the marketplace with a keen eye for vintage pieces and a vision to rework and recreate those very pieces.

Today, Scout is one of the established go-tos for designers and consumers alike and they’ve expanded considerably.

Every inch of their 15,000-square-foot showroom in the Design District is filled with unique, bold, brash pieces. And yes, they still sell vintage, but now those vintage pieces sit right alongside their limited edition, exclusive Scout Label furniture, and home accessories.

If a home is not being renovated, it’s being razed. Builders are everywhere, and the range of price points is dizzying. When I heard about this Midway Hollow contemporary, I could not wait to share it because it’s just a cut above what you typically find anywhere. And that’s because Carolyn Isler, owner of Isler Homes, took it down to the foundation and rebuilt it.
