Chattanooga's Warehouse Row has refashioned itself since the 19th century as a Civil War fort, later as a textile warehouse district, and still later as an outlet mall. But we think its latest iteration, an industrial-chic cluster of boutiques, is a keeper.

Here are some of the stores that make this street the best.

  • Amanda Pinson Jewelry
  • Amanda has impeccable taste, a lifelong love of jewelry, and a stunning knack for matchmaking her loyal followers to the collections from Pomellato, Irene Neuwerth, Temple St. Clair, and others in her ethereally white atelier—a sparkly departure from the industrial character of the building.
  • Revival Uncommon Goods
  • Co-owner Rodney Simmons has three rules for curating the showroom: 1) Never be formulaic, 2) Select products from around the world with "an editorial eye," 3) Combine the goods in perfect vignettes. The result? A delightful mash-up of antiques, modern upholstery, and luxury gifts.
  • Embellish
  • As a consultant for Carlisle, a line of women's apparel, Embellish owner Terri Holley discovered she couldn't find the right shoes for her clients, so she opened up a shoe store of her own. This jewel box boutique showcases fashion-forward labels like Cordani, Diane von Furstenberg, Tory Burch, and Robert Clergerie.
  • Drew Lewis
  • Hip Atlanta menswear purveyor Drew Lewis makes shopping feel like an afternoon in a British gentlemen's club: modern clean lines, dark hardwood floors, vintage barstools, and stacks of books. Browse the racks of Billy Reid, Jack Spade, and Rag & Bone clothing with your gin-gin mule in hand. Yes, they serve cocktails.
