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.”
