Clean lines, an open floor plan and continuity between indoors and out are some of the aesthetic qualities Vince Signorelli, president of Tanner's Team Sports Inc., values in his living space. So, when it came time to freshen up his living and dining rooms, he looked to the design team at Arkansas Furniture.
“It was important to me to sit down with them and give them a good idea of who I am,” he said. “We walked around the space and really got to know each other and from that they designed a space that really reflects my sensibility.”
Designer Quinn Jones said Signorelli's home is heavily influenced by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and includes “simple geometry with horizontal lines” in an open plan.
“Vince's style is more of a transitional flair,” she said. “Windows whenever possible are long and low, allowing a connection between the interior and nature.”
Jones said Signorelli was looking to freshen up the spaces so they would better match his personality and the style of his home. The team at Arkansas Furniture — a 50,000-square-foot, family owned store, with unique furniture and accessories and professional in-home or in-store services — took the city-living-meets-nature approach to the space.
“Vince, being a bubbly, one-of-a-kind guy who has traveled the world, wanted his home to capture his personality along with his personal style,” she said. “I gave him new, transitional colors and style with a classy eloquence,” adding that he only asked for one statement to be made when seeing the new look: “Wow, Vince would do this.” “I'm still amazed and impressed at the finished product,” he said. “Just from that one conversation, they really grasped my personality and what I wanted and needed out of the space. It's an interesting space that I wanted my family to enjoy and it's very clean. But the clean lines really make the colors and art Quinn and her team brought in come to life. It's fun and whimsical, yet classic.”
