Our Favorite Fall Things in Nashville

Each season, we like to put together a little travel guide of our favorite things in and around Nashville. There are so many visitors coming into town for a weekend stay, transplants putting down roots (much like we did five years ago), and road-trippers passing through on some type of journey throughout the South.

Nashville is a place that feels very different from season to season, so if you’ve been here in the summer, it might feel like a totally different place than when you come in the fall or winter. Here are a few of our favorite spots to visit when the weather cools down.

  • Natchez Trace Bridge. One of the most scenic spots in the Nashville area (and the country) is the Natchez Trace bridge, a double-arched bridge over Natchez Trace Parkway in Williamson County. We like to go out there when the leaves are changing colors because it offers some pretty incredible views of the Tennessee wilderness from the bridge’s center — and if you’re interested in design, there’s a lot of inspiration behind the bridge’s construction.

  • Pilgrimage Music & Culture Festival. This is a fairly new music festival, but it draws huge names from Nashville and beyond. This year’s fest takes place September 22 & September 23, with headliners like Jack White, Lionel Richie, Hozier, Counting Crows, Chris Sapleton and Dave Matthews.

  • Seasonal cocktails at The Fox. Have we mentioned how much we love The Fox Bar & Cocktail Club? All jokes aside, the bar that we designed in East Nashville recently unveiled their list of fall and winter cocktails, and that thing is no joke.

  • Old Hickory Village. Some people (ahem — investors) are saying that Old Hickory could become the “new East Nashville.” We don’t know about all that, but we do think it’s a pretty special in its own right. This area just outside of the city is the home of the 1767 studio, and if you haven’t explored it yet, we’d recommend getting out there this fall to check out the lake, the historic homes and, of course, our home base.

  • Nashville Flea Market. We’re always talking about how much we love the flea market at the Nashville Fairgrounds, but anyone who knows the flea will tell you that fall is the best time to go. Nashville gets hot in the summertime, so once the weather cools down, it’s much more comfortable to wander the grounds and shop for treasures.

  • Chattanooga. Okay, not much of a Nashville activity, but if you’ve lived in Nashville for a while and you’re looking for a seriously easy (and inspiring) fall road trip, we’d suggest hitting the road for Chattanooga. We recently made the trek and stayed with Treetop Hideaways, but we also loved The Dwell Hotel, Collective Clothing and the beautiful Hunter Museum of American Art.

1767 Showroom Opening Party Recap

We're finally recovering from the super fun, super surreal time we had with all of you at our Showroom Opening Party on Saturday. We can't thank everyone enough for coming, and we couldn't think of a better way to ring in this new chapter for our business! 

In case you missed it, the party was a celebration of the brand new showroom and co-working space that we recently opened just outside of Nashville in Old Hickory, TN. We enlisted our friends at The Gambling Stick BBQ for some tasty eats, Jackalope Brewing Co. and The Fox Bar & Cocktail Club to host the bar, and Robby Day and Lonely Benson for the tunes. Since we'll be sharing the co-working portion of the showroom with fellow Nashville makers Lockeland Leatherworks and Sweet Farm, they were also on site slinging their incredible wares.

We say it all the time, but we couldn't do what we do without all of you, and we're so happy to finally have a physical space where we can meet you in person. Whether you live in Nashville or you're just in town for the weekend, come out and visit us at our new space!

Three Big Events (And an Even Bigger Apartment)

When it comes to announcements, we like to get right down to business. Here are a few big events coming up for 1767, plus an exciting project that we just couldn't wait to tell you about.

  • M Street Chef Week With Kayne Prime. From April 24 through April 30, Nashville's M Street restaurant group is hosting its annual Chef Week, which features private dinners pairing some of the city's best chefs with area artists. We were chosen to work with Kayne Prime's Steven Chandler to create custom serving trays to use as the backdrop for his stunning culinary creations. 
  • The Sunday Market. On Sunday, May 14 we'll be heading to Franklin, TN for this makers' market. The market is held in the Shed at Southeast side of The Factory at Franklin, and you can listen to some live music, grab food from Nashville's best food trucks and do some good for local non-profits while you shop.
  • Porter Flea. We always look forward to Porter Flea's huge summer show, and we're already gearing up for this year's market on June 16 and 17. 
  • The Olmsted. We're excited to announce that we're working on some custom installations and furniture designs in the Olmsted, a new apartment complex in Nashville's SoBro neighborhood. The 328-unit building will feature work from a few Nashville artists, so we'll be in very good company. Stay tuned for more!
