About Us

Hester & Cook started in the home basement of husband and wife team Robbie and Angie Hester Cook. What began as Robbie’s inspired idea of crafting a vintage doorknob into a bottle stopper soon became the company’s first product, KnobStoppers. Within months, Angie and Robbie introduced the product to the wholesale market.

From there, Hester & Cook rapidly grew into offering everything from hand-crafted chandeliers to #2 pencils. Today we are best known for our paper placemat pads and table runners. Assortments of our products can be found at over 3000 stores worldwide, but the full collection is only available on this website as well as our three Nashville, TN area retail locations; our White Bridge and Hillsboro Village Stores, and our signature location in Franklin, TN.

In addition to Hester & Cook’s own products, we also carry a wide variety of brands that fit both our ethos and our aesthetic. From curated dinnerware to festive decor, we have hand-selected thoughtful items for every occasion.
