When parents interested in redecorating a child’s room enter the Oak Factory furniture store in Brannon Crossing, owners Denisa and Mike Cooper say it all starts with the bed.
Customers have told the Coopers that their selection of bedrooms is the largest in town.
With 30 bedrooms set up in their 20,000 square-foot show room, it seems they do know a thing or two about redesigning children’s rooms.
“Almost every child wants a bunk bed. It’s just so exciting,” Denisa said.
“If parents are looking for a twin bed, we recommend they consider a bunk bed, which are great for sleepovers.”
She also suggests that parents consider a bunk-bed arrangement with a full bed on bottom and a twin on top.
This allows room for a parent to read to a child in bed.
If the room can accommodate a queen bed, it may be the last bed parents will buy for a child.
And when the child leaves home, the room can be converted into a guest room.
A popular trend with teenagers is a platform bed with drawers underneath for storage.
This allows for more organization and doesn’t require box springs.
Media chests have become fashionable for children’s rooms because they provide storage and an area for TV sets and Blue Ray players.
Besides children’s rooms, Oak Factory Furniture and Mattress Gallery offers quality oak, cherry, pine and finished wood furniture for every room in the house.
The store also offers upholstery, a Restonic mattress gallery, and dining room, home office and entertainment room furniture.
And for the first time, the Coopers have a baby crib on the showroom floor.
The Coopers have been furnishing area homes since they opened their store 18 years ago in 5,000 square feet on Reynolds Road.
Their two children – Gene, 14, and Samantha, 11 – have been featured in Oak Factory advertisements for years.
“Everywhere we go, people come up and talk to the kids. People even ask for their autographs,” Denisa said.
“We found the Lord when we moved up here from Knoxville. God is our CEO, and we try to run our business as Christ-like as we can. We have fun and enjoy what we do.
Opening the store is the best we’ve ever done.”
