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

In 2016, Carter Fowler became the president of The Furniture Shoppe and The Patio Shop, now in its fifth generation. In 2020, The Furniture Shoppe and The Patio Shop rebranded back to its roots as Fowler Brothers Co. to highlight the company’s rich history of providing quality furniture to the Chattanooga area for over 135 years. The Fowler Brothers’ commitment to always providing exceptional craftsmanship and service has led to strong customer loyalty that has held steadfast for generations.

The Fowler Brothers Company proudly celebrates over 135 years of providing the Chattanooga community and beyond with the highest quality furniture. Now in its fifth generation, Fowler Brothers Co. 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. Fowler Brothers Co. has a curated collection of high quality home and patio furniture guaranteed to last and hold up for generations. This same principle is something that we offer for our design services. We want our clients to have honest, sturdy, timeless furniture that they can pass for generations.
