Paul and Janis Curtin
Please share a bit about your background:
We are both artistically inspired. Both have worked with designing, textures and fibers for flooring and upholstery for the home. My husband and son have been in the flooring business for over 30 years (CarpetsPlus COLORTILE) and this was actually the inspiration for The Furniture Store.
What was the inspiration for your business?
Our customers at CarpetsPlus COLORTILE kept asking “When are you going to offer furniture to go with this beautiful flooring?” So you could say we started because of customer requests.
What (is/are) your most popular item(s)?
We specialize in unique furnishing that you aren’t going to see in other furniture stores. We are also big supporters of “Made in America.”
Do you have a little-known specialty?
We have no “rules!” Whether in the store or at customers’ homes, we assist the them with fitting the furniture to their lifestyles. Our customers are phenomenal – 75 to 80% of our business is repeat or referrals. Our primary specialty is the relationships we have with our customers.
Can you share a sneak peek to your future plans?
We will be opening an art gallery on the third floor on July 19. We will be showing work from lots of new, fresh, young artists. The artwork will change out periodically so you will have to keep stopping in to see what’s on display.
