Lamontagne’s Home Furniture and Accessories opened May 6 with longtime Pleasant View businessman Brad Lamontagne as its owner.

Located across Main Street from The Livery Stables, the store offers a variety of items that range in price from $5 to $1,900.

“I noticed the town needed something like this, so they don’t have to travel to Nashville or Clarksville,” said Lamontagne, who grew up in Hendersonville and moved to the area when Triton opened around 1996.

He said he believes there is a tremendous need for household décor, citing the several subdivisions under development to accommodate many from Nashville looking for a quieter lifestyle in the country.

A lot of the pieces, including accent pieces like cabinets and end table, reflect a popular rustic, country style.

Lamontagne has worked at Triton Boating in Ashland City, as well as Stratus on Old Hickory. He also served as an assistant football coach at Sycamore High School for several years. Brad and his wife, Lara, have three kids — all graduates of Sycamore — and two grandkids. 

Lamontagne said he has been a little frustrated with getting the store open under coronavirus guidelines.

“I really wanted something different, but I couldn’t go to many shows for furniture and related items because they were cancelled due to the virus, with Las Vegas as well as Tupelo in Mississippi among them,” he said.

Lamontagne said he is committed to having local artists and artisans bring in their work down the road.

“I’m looking into how I can logistically help out local artists,” he said.  “I could showcase a featured artist on a Saturday.”

He also wants to honor the building that has a long history on Main Street, having previously housed for many years the Blue Springs Gift Shop and the candy store known as Sweet On Main.

“This building has a history,” he said. “The front room was built in 1890. People traveled by horse and buggy and stopped at The Livery Stables across the street.”

He said he is looking into obtaining kitchen sets and table sets, napkins, runners and chargers (underplates). 

“We’ll have a table so people can set things up to see how it will look,” Lamontagne said. “Even with the growth I see coming, I still sense we’ll have a sense like a country setting with a small-town feel.”
