Contemporary Furniture + Interior Design

Nouveau Classics was founded by Interior Designer Paula Clancy in 1989. The showroom features Modern and Contemporary furniture and carries many unique, quality lines from Europe that are exclusive to Nouveau Classics.


Decorating is not just about function, it is also about fashion. Clancy works with clients to design a home or an office that is not only beautiful, but comfortable, energizing and stylish. She works with you from the beginning to the end of the project.

For over 32 years, Paula Clancy has designed well over 100 homes and businesses. From Florida to New York, Portland and back, Paula has created spaces that are both sought after and well recognized.

"I sell a complete package….whether the client is buying one piece or a whole room,  I am there from beginning to end. Listening to my clients, helping them achieve the look they are after, originality and customer service are key elements to a successful end result. The ability to cater to the needs and desires of your client is an essential discipline for any good designer.” A sharp awareness of new trends around the world has kept Paula a step ahead of the competition.

The Dogwood Arts House & Garden Show is presented by ORNL Federal Credit Union.
