Designer Barbi Rushing’s countryside estate just outside of Little Rock is filled with beautiful antiques. From the moment you walk through the front door, you’ll realize every piece is not only beautiful, but meaningful as well. The home was built to encompass a set of antique French trumeau doors that lead into the dining room. The bronze doré chandelier hanging over the table belonged to Barbi’s grandmother. And, the center tablecloth was made specifically for luncheons her mother hosted.
