The Fowler Brothers Company proudly celebrates 134 years of providing the Chattanooga community and beyond with the highest quality furniture. Now in its fifth generation, The Furniture Shoppe and The Patio Shop is lead by Carter Fowler. With great dedication and care, Carter Fowler has personally hand-selected each furniture piece to ensure only the very best selection of inventory.

That same devoted mindset and quality focus has held steadfast over the generations. “Each of our stores has a curated collection,” Carter says of The Furniture Shoppe and The Patio Shop. “We know we can guarantee that quality to hold up. My ancestors would use words that were related to the craftsmanship and the construction, such as ‘honest’ furniture or ‘sturdy’ furniture.”

A true focus on quality craftsmanship has lead to customer loyalty and trust over many decades. Developing personal relationships with customers and providing knowledgeable, excellent service is of central importance to the Fowler Brothers. “We’re in a world where you can click and buy things online; I get it,” says Carter. “But it’s not just our products, it’s also the people that make up our company who are focused on having the knowledge to give customers good, honest advice.”

The Fowler Brothers strive to improve the community around them by creating an ideal living experience. “We’re in a world of many disposable goods, but we know the products we offer will stand the test of time. They will be tomorrow’s antiques. We’re literally giving people something that can change the way they use their space to enhance their life.”


Fowler Brothers Company began in 1885 by James G Sterchi. He started selling goods door to door out of a horse drawn buggy. He and is brother, John Calvin Sterchi, and his son in law, John O Fowler, opened Sterchi Brothers and Fowler, located in downtown Chattanooga, in 1911. In 1930, Fowler Brothers Company was incorporated in Chattanooga and Knoxville. The first Chattanooga store was located next to the Tivoli Theatre at Seventh and Broad Streets. Currently, Fowler Brothers Company operates as The Furniture Shoppe and The Patio Shop off I-24 at Fourth Avenue in Chattanooga. This is the only location operated by family members of the original Fowler Brothers Company.
