A Mid-Century Modern Mission
After 20 years of living in their 4,000-square-foot home at the foot of Signal Mountain, Rick and Susie Thompson began looking to downsize. The beautiful craftsman-style home, which was the first home the duo had ever built and designed together, had certainly been a labor of love, but the upkeep that came with the acreage and pool was beginning to take its toll. After purchasing two lots in North Chattanooga from Rick’s business partners, the couple got to work on what would be a yearlong design project that ultimately produced their mid-century modern dream.

“I grew up in a ranch-style home,” says Rick. “In the 60s, that was just the prevailing style, and I’ve always liked that linear look.” Rick took what was familiar from his childhood and married it with the mid-century style of one of his biggest inspirations, Frank Lloyd Wright, to create a one-of-a-kind place to call home.
