WoodKnott Brings Custom Furniture and Housewares to Federal Hill

| February 2, 2017 | 0 Comments

South Baltimore resident Eric Knott and business partner Meagan Kelly have opened WoodKnott at 912 S. Charles St. in Federal Hill at the former home of Federal Restorations, which recently relocated to 838 Leadenhall St. Knott, who has been a contractor since 2002, is now focusing on creating custom furniture and cabinets that will be sold at the new store. Knott also worked in the furniture industry earlier in his career.

The 1,900 sq. ft. space will feature a first-floor showroom, where WoodKnott will keep about 10 pieces that will serve as an illustration of Knott’s work, and a workshop in the basement. Customers can buy pieces and houseware off the showroom floor, but most items will be custom-made after consulting with Knott. He told SouthBMore.com the pieces will be “rowhome-centric” to help with the space limitations of city living, and prices would be affordable and comparable to many other furniture stores. Pieces can be made from both new and reclaimed materials.

Knott completely renovated the space. He restored the wood floors, created an accent wall from wood deconstructed during the renovation, created another accent wall from barn wood, and updated all the mechanical elements and electric in the space. WoodKnott also features exposed brick and beams, and the walls are filled with custom-made designs. Knott also updated the basement to fit the needs of his workshop.

The showroom currently features a custom-made bed with a headboard, a coffee table with chairs, a rolling kitchen table, and a Maryland flag mirror crafted from wood. Knott will be adding more pieces to the space.

In the future, Knott will be renovating an upstairs space so WoodKnott can host events and craft nights.

Knott told SouthBMore.com he is excited to be part of Federal Hill Main Street and talked about the great relationship he has already established with neighboring businesses.

WoodKnott will be open Wednesday through Saturday from 10am to 7pm and Sundays from 12pm to 5pm. WoodKnott will have a team of four to five people.
