If you drove through Newnan, did you notice the red chair? If not, let us bring your attention to the red chair and who’s sitting in it…Mark Knox! Mark has been one of Brown Nelms client for years, and we were so proud to read the featured article in Newnan Coweta Magazine. He is a Newnan local, and owner of Knox Furniture.

The article highlights the devastation of the tornadoes that ripped through downtown Newnan on March 26, 2021. Unfortunately, Knox Furniture was one on the several businesses torn apart (literally) by the tornado. It ripped off the roof, dumped water into the showroom, and left piles of debris. Months after, Mark is still recovering and trying to rebuild his furniture store who’s been a staple in the community since 1955.

So the editors of the Newnan Coweta Magazine thought of a perfect idea…feature Mark in the red chair for the front cover. If you’d like to view the article electronically, please see here. If you’re out and about in Coweta County, make sure you pick up a copy!
