About Us

Calise Design Studios was born as a creative outlet aside from our day to day work in hopes to, one day, make it our focus. That day has arrived. Our name is plural since our creative outlets are far beyond one and it has been our goal to create a different studio that describes what we do under one name. Our journey started with the Furniture Studio. Since then we have created several other smaller studios such as Soap Making and Accessories, Logo Design for small businesses, and Stationery Studio. Nevertheless, our main focus continues to be the Furniture Studio, Architectural design and Drafting Studio and Digital Art Studio.

Lead by Mirelys Calise, the Architectural Design and Drafting Studio concentrates in architectural design, space planning and visualization of our client's future space in the residential and commercial area. Kitchen design and renovation, residential additions, interior design, and 3-D modeling and architectural renderings.  This studio gives us the opportunity and privilege to collaborate with other architectural and design firms, residential plan and elevation designs for builders, and developers.
Furniture Design
Lead by Richard Calise, the Furniture Studio specializes in designing and building furniture combining new and reclaimed wood. All our furniture are designed and made by us. We use local materials and the best reclaimed wood to give our furniture that unique and signature look. Our furniture line is inspired by Modern Style with clean lines and low profiles. Unlike mass produced items, every one of our pieces is unique and we are proud to offer the best quality handmade furniture. Lead time is between 6 to 10 weeks and it depends on the type of furniture ordered. Our work is made-to-order at our Furniture Studio in Knoxville TN.
