Mitchell Hill opens Charleston’s first design center in old Chase Furniture location

Doubling down on design


Mitchell Hill, a Charleston-based “design house,” is celebrating their 10 year anniversary by expanding. This fall, Mitchell Hill opens what they’re calling Charleston’s “first-ever design center” in the former location of Chase Furniture.

In a press release, the folks at Mitchell Hill say that they want to bring back a design community to upper King Street: “Where showrooms like Waterworks, SieMatic, and Morris Sokol have all closed their doors — Mitchell Hill aims to serve as a resource for both design connoisseurs and to-the-trade industry professionals.”

The first floor of the design center will carry the latest in furnishings, paint, flooring, and original works of art (similar to some of what you’ll find in the OG Mitchell Hill location).

The center will also double as an event space where owners Michael Mitchell and Tyler Hill will host events with local design and media partners.
In addition to their existing vendors, including Style Library, Pearson, DXV, Chaddock, and more, Mitchell Hill introduces new vendors like Farrow & Ball, Artitalia Flooring, and CB2 Paint. Mitchell Hill will also unveil a curated selection of contemporary art and collaborative works during the opening of the center.

Michael Mitchell says, “We’ve seen Charleston grow into a design hub, and with the influx of interior designers, furniture makers, and design aficionados, we saw a hole in the market. The same way many of the designers gravitate towards High Point Market, Atlanta, and New York, we want to be seen as a design resource in your backyard.”
