Maxie Home is a home furnishings and accessories design showroom in Shreveport, Louisiana, founded by Interior Designer Cole Baker. As with its owner, who clients know as a very versatile designer, Maxie Home features an eclectic mix of old and new furniture, accent pieces, and unique gift items.
When Cole decided to open a retail business, which would also serve as a home base for his design services, he dug deep into his roots for its structure. Maxie Home is named for Cole’s beloved grandmother (Nana). The store's logo is her signature, captured via cards and letters. A portrait of the shop's namesake, painted by Laura Mitchell Core, a longtime family friend and local artist, is the centerpiece of Maxie Home. After spending a dozen years in Baton Rouge, Cole is happy to be back home in Shreveport and to offer the area an opportunity to visit his new store and learn more about his design services and eye for the aesthetic.
