Founder, Owner, and Principal Designer

Haskell R. Matheny is the driving force behind Haskell Interiors. Haskell has that special and rare combination of education, training, and raw talent that elevates Haskell Interiors to a level above the competition.  Haskell explains his design philosophy this way: “I am driven and motivated by architecture, I look at each space as a blank canvas and my goal is to make the space beautiful and visually interesting.  I believe the space itself should have its own character and evoke a feeling before the first piece of furniture is placed in to it.”  Haskell has a BA in Psychology from Rhodes College in Memphis, TN as well as a BS in Interior Design from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.  With over 20 years as an interior designer, Haskell is an active member in a number of industry organizations and the recipient of countless design industry awards.
