Enhancing the Experience of Living
No window should go undressed!
If that’s not the rallying cry of an entire industry, it’s at least the admonition of one of its top advocates, Wolfgang Schaber, owner, Wolfgang Interiors, Knoxville, TN.
Wolfgang Interiors is a multi-dimensional, full-service interior design firm offering clients the best in interior design consultation, home furnishings, accents, window treatments and more. Its goal is to take clients’ dreams and make them come true; and if the dreams need a little fine-tuning, it’s there offering expertise in design and decorating to assist in every way.
Among the services Wolfgang Interiors provides are:
• Custom window treatments and bedding made in the company’s own in-house drapery workroom. Schaber designs and has all of the custom window treatments and bedding done in-house so there is an assurance of quality in the end product.
• Interior design consultation for new construction or existing homes, including specification of flooring, wall colors, lighting fixtures, furniture placement, etc.
• Design plans and implementation. If a client has a new home, is remodeling or just looking for the right look for that one room; Wolfgang Interiors can help.
Custom-made draperies and bedding are an import part of the work Schaber does. Draperies are able to add texture, color, warmth and comfort to a room, he believes, let alone enhance a room’s focus on a certain design style and theme.
Schaber himself is hands-on with all the fabrications manufactured in his own drapery workroom. He prides himself in the high quality end products that are produced and the constant new drapery and bedding designs.
At Wolfgang Interiors’ showroom clients are shown and can choose from hundreds of different silks in what Schaber calls Knoxville’s only silk gallery (many very reasonably priced), some of which are very exclusive. However, silks are not the only fabrics Schaber carries. The company also offers a very wide variety of trims, rods (wooden, wrought iron and resin), brackets and unique drapery accessories.
Whatever the project, Schaber’s work is all custom. Wolfgang Interiors specializes in custom residential and commercial interior design. One of its primary services is assisting clients with new construction. In particular, this entails reviewing architectural floor plans to maximize functionality, space planning for furniture and drapery placement at a later point during construction, specifying wall colors, floors, cabinet colors and style for kitchen and bathrooms, lighting selection, furniture, accessory and drapery selection as well as placement. Schaber always keeps in mind creating a flow throughout the house and achieving its customer’s vision.
Born and raised in Innsbruck, Austria, Schaber was educated at the University of Innsbruck and is fluent in German and English. He believes that his talent for designing spaces is a creative gift that gives him the opportunity to enhance his clients’ living experience.
Today he is the owner and principal designer of Wolfgang Interiors, which he opened in Knoxville, TN, in 2004.
Schaber also is airing as a host on design/makeover show on the TV Food Network called “Kitchen Accomplished.” He has been a featured designer on the HGTV show Designer's Challenge and has participated in the Symphony Show House and Parade of Homes events. He is a contributing editor for Home and Living magazine and a committee chairman for the Dogwood Home and Garden Show.
If all this isn’t keeping him busy enough, Schaber is also working on his first book, which he aims to be used as a very helpful guide to maximize design details and functionality in new construction and remodeling projects.
