Suburban Furniture is pleased to offer an in home consultation from our designer. And it can end up being absolutely FREE to you. Our Design Consultants bring years of experience into their work.

How does it work? Our in-store designer and your sales associate will come out to your home and spend up to an hour per room exploring your current space. They will note colors, layout and special pieces you may want to decorate around. They will come to understand what you want to achieve. They may bring samples or suggestions based on any previous in store conversations. They will then return to the store and within one to two weeks, invite you into the store to present their suggestions to you. This includes suggestions for one, some or all of furniture, accessories, area rugs, general paint colors, and room layouts to help you achieve your goals.

How much does it cost? We thought you said it was FREE! There is a $350 consultation fee that is collected before the in-home visit. When you purchase $3,500 of merchandise or more we apply the $350 towards your purchase.
