Worlds Apart offers décor and furnishings at outlet prices
By Leslie Thompson
Worlds Apart opened for business at 2159 Central Avenue in mid-December. The shop is the second to be offered by Bob Berry and Lucy Woodson, who also own Downtown’s Worlds Away. While the company has been designing home accessories and furniture for wholesale all over the country for almost two decades, they have also been selling their designs to the public in their Downtown outlet at discounts normally reserved for retailer clients. The new outlet is located in the old Central Liquors space and is near the Cooper and Central intersection, which attracts shoppers from all over Memphis with its longstanding antique malls and galleries. The Central location provides convenience for old customers and new, who might find getting to the downtown headquarters difficult. The store offers an ever-changing selection of furniture, drapery, lamps, and decorative items that are available in a wide variety of styles ranging from classic to eclectic.
