Faulkner 100: Cedar Creek has the unique décor you’re after

Posted: July 14, 2014 - 7:15am

If you want to add a unique Western-style feel to the décor of your home, Cedar Creek Log Furniture in Greenbrier is the place to shop.

Cedar Creek Log Furniture started as a log-furniture store and has branched into the Western scene. They have one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture and decorator items that are all handmade by American craftsmen. In addition to merchandise crafted by local vendors, the store offers a variety of pieces from vendors across the country. Furniture pieces made from cedar and aspen log are available, as are unique decorator items made from 200-year-old, reclaimed tobacco barn wood.

A quick look at the store’s décor will give you hundreds of ideas on how to decorate your own home. Log, rustic and Western-style furniture is available for the whole house. Cedar Creek also sells cow-skin pieces, bedding, candles, artwork, lighting, rugs and taxidermy.

Opened in November 2009 by Anita and Tommy White, Cedar Creek Log Furniture is the culmination of a dream the couple had for years. Anita said she and Tommy had retired, but later decided they were too young for all that. They had always loved log homes and decided to get into the business.

“Not a lot of stores in the state have what we have in this quantity or quality,” Anita said. “We have such supportive customers. People will stop in and say they’ve looked all over for these items and are glad we’re here.” The Whites are always looking for unique, one-of-a-kind items, and will bring in a couple of new items each year that they might find at market.

Due to its great success, the Greenbrier store has been expanded to a 10,000-square-foot showroom. A second, smaller store was opened in 2013 in Mountain View. This store even has a complete coffee bar and frozen yogurt bar, perfect for visitors to the attractions in Mountain View.

“People come to Greenbrier from all over the state and surrounding states,” says Anita. “We have regular clients from Mississippi, Oklahoma and Tennessee. We have a lot of local craftsmen pieces, some that include cedar from northwest Arkansas.”

Anita said that if a client is looking for a particular item, she will work to find just what they need. “We have builders all over the country that we buy directly from, and they can do some specialty pieces. If it can be made out of wood, my guys can do it. We want everybody who comes into the store to find something.”

Cedar Creek Log Furnishings is at Highway 65 and Highway 287 at Springhill. It is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. The knowledgeable and friendly staff can help customers with finding the right furniture and accessories to transform any home. Layaway and financing are available, which is particularly nice for folks building a home who can’t take their merchandise right away.
