Modern Interior Design

Wilder is a showroom and design shop located in Nashville, TN.  Our first location opened its doors in November 2014, in the historical Germantown neighborhood.  Our second concept location, Wilder Etudes, launched in May 2017 in Nashville's Edgehill Village on Music Row.  After some experimentation, we decided to merge the Etudes concept with our main showroom— all the Wilder experiences under one roof.

We feature a constantly rotating edit showcasing the world's leading and emerging contemporary designers-- in categories ranging from furniture & lighting to fragrance & apparel.  We celebrate modern design in all its articulations, and are frequently conspiring with new collaborators on exclusive products, innovative residencies and some really fun parties.

Over time, Wilder has evolved into a diverse design resource and creative programming studio. In January 2020 Wilder's HQ moved into a three story townhome a few blocks from its original flagship.  The move has allowed us to fully expand our curatorial practice, and the Wilder Gallery was born. 

Wilder now serves as a platform, exploring a range of related design and fine art practices: showroom, gallery, interior design, experiential programming. We are unified by what moves us.

Ivy & Josh relocated to Nashville from NYC to open Wilder, where they both resided for the prior two decades.  Their backgrounds are in dance, film, theater and art.  They were once A Rockette and A Blue Man. They are most lit up by shaping space and creating dynamic environments.
