From sofas to bedroom furniture, cocktail tables, and consoles, you can furnish your entire home in one visit.

GDC Home furniture design center

Convenient Design Center

It’s a nuisance to have to order swatches to your home to consider what upholstery fabrics you prefer. You’re limited to what you can order and have to wait to see if you like what arrives. When you come into our design center, we have hundreds of fabric swatches to look at, feel, and consider for your project. You can even check fabric samples out of our library to see how they work with your existing furniture and paint colors . From performance fabrics like Crypton to outdoor fabrics, we only show the best in our fabric library because we want your spaces to feel as soft and look as serene as you imagine. Sometimes all it takes to refresh a space is adding colorful new cushions.
