About the Business
When you walk into Backroads Market & Designs you are greeted with the sweet smell of coffee, fresh flowers, music like Frank Sinatra playing in the background, as well as visually stimulating Modern/Farmhouse décor and unique pieces to make your house a home. You can also find gifts and accessories for all occasions as well as a full-service coffee bar. Nowhere else will you find a coffee shop in the midst of a furniture and home décor store. One of Kerry's (owner) dreams was to create a space for community...for relationships to develop and grow. What some people don't realize about Backroads Market & Designs is that there is over 4000 square feet of retail space as well as another 1000 square feet devoted to their coffee shop where they serve Vienna Coffee locally roasted out of Maryville, TN. At the coffee bar you will find a menu full of regular and specialty coffee drinks as well as toasts and spreads. Owners Craig and Kerry didn't want Backroads Market to just be about shopping and coffee but about the feel and experience from time you walk through the doors. So make your way over to their space and experience this magical combination of furniture, coffee, and home décor.
Backroads coffee shop is a full-service coffee bar with regular and specialty coffees. They also provide toast and spreads. You can also utilize their space to do work away from home or gather with a group of friends and chat. There is plenty of space for you to sip, sit and stay.
AND DID YOU KNOW?! Backroads Market & Designs has custom furniture. If you don’t see what you want in the store be sure to check out the design center to let them help you custom order sofas, chairs and ottomans. There are over a hundred fabric swatches as well several styles and frames to choose from. They chose an upholstered company to represent Backroads Market & Designs that doesn’t disappoint and has been in business for over 100 years.
About the Owners
Kerry (pictured right) and husband Craig Myers realized their passion for creating cozy spaces when they blended their lives together in 2013. Craig Myers is an ObGyn by trade but when he is not delivering babies he is dreaming up spaces with his wife, Kerry. They blended their families as well as their gifts and talents...hospitality and an eye for home design and décor. They started dreaming up a "Fixer Upper" kind a place where people could shop for modern/farmhouse furniture and décor while sipping on a cup of coffee. Soon Backroads Market & Designs was born and the doors were opened in July 2016.
When Kerry and Craig are not at the store they enjoy spending time with their three boys, traveling, and sitting with friends over a meal to catch up. On any given day you can find them sitting in cozy spaces in their home with a good cup of coffee or a glass of wine just talking about life and dreaming up more creative ideas.
