Whether it is a cabinet or candle holder, Tennessee designer Peter Fleming artfully juxtaposes high style with down-to-earth functionality.

Before starting his company (Building #9), Fleming taught courses on the history of furniture and decorative arts at O’More College of Design in Franklin, Tenn.

The company name: As a professor, Fleming’s classes were held in a converted shoe factory, specifically in the factory’s Building #9.
