HER Home Makeover

The Sentinel-Record - HER - Hot Springs - - Contents -

When Chris Dunk le and Jen­nifer made the de­ci­sion to up­date the liv­ing spa­ces in their Red Oak Ridge home, they paid a visit to Arkansas Fur­ni­ture and im­me­di­ately be­gan work­ing on a con­cept with de­signer Christo­pher Koch. Arkansas Fur­ni­ture opened in Hot Springs in 1986 as a small fam­ily-owned and op­er­ated store. Thirty years and three ac­tive gen­er­a­tions of grow th and changes have pro­duced one of Arkansas’ most in­ter­est­ing hom e fur­nish­ing des­ti­na­tions. Dur­ing the process, Dunk le was on the look­out for a chair and otto man for the home, and Jen­nifer had al­ways wanted a tufted sofa. Or­ange, cream, blue and green emerged as the color pal­let and Koch put to­gether as eat­ing ar­range­ment fea­tur­ing a sofa by Nor walk, along with chairs from Mayo and Bern­hardt Fur­ni­ture.

With the ad­di­tion of a mix of new ac­ces­sory pieces in­clud­ing art­work, cus­tom flo­rals, lamps, and an area rug, the project was com­plete.

The home­own­ers “love the new look and thank all for help­ing them color their hom e beau­ti­ful.”

Dunk le and Jen­nifer have been serv­ing Hot Springs and its sur­round­ing com m unity in dif­fer­ent ca­pac­i­ties through­out their lives. D un­kle is the owner of Stubby’s BBQ, and Jen­nifer is an RN at Ge­n­e­sis Can­cer Cen­ter. For 12 years she has been help­ing pa­tients with treat­ment and med­i­ca­tions

while they are un­der the care of the cen­ter’ s five doc­tors.

“It be­comes a re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence be­cause of the lives that you touch ,” she said .“You re­ally get to know them as you be­come part of the fam­ily .”
