From the moment visitors walk into Crescent House Furniture, the Austin vibe is apparent. Melissa Grant and her husband, Stacy Grant, have infused this unique store with their passion and love. Melissa Grant’s background is in sales, marketing and management, and she’s worked with companies such as Pottery Barn, Arhaus and Urban Outfitters. After Melissa Grant spent a year collaborating with Stacy Grant on design and product for Crescent House, they fell in love, and she left Kentucky for a new adventure in Austin, where she joined her husband at Crescent House. From her love of one-of-a-kind pieces to the history of the items she hand-selects to showcase in Crescent House, Melissa Grant’s touch can be seen throughout the store. She brings her talent in team building, motivation and culture development to their home and their ever-growing furniture business. The couple now lives a very exciting life with their three teenagers, and Melissa devotes much time to projects near and dear to her heart, including volunteering for Austin Smiles, mentoring young adults and helping empower and encourage other women.
