South End Gems

Here in Charlotte we are extremely lucky in the number of fabulous design and decor resources that we have!  Whether you are looking to do an extensive remodel, or simply refresh the look of your home or office, there are many different stores available to satisfy your needs.

More specifically, the South End area of Charlotte is a hub for interior design, decor, and furnishing!  As a designer here in town, I have learned to love and value this area of Charlotte.  When designing new spaces for clients, I know that South End can provide anything from kitchen and bath hardware, to simple accents for the final finishing touches.

Over the years I have found myself returning to some of the same stores time and time again.  Here is a quick look at a few of my favorites:

The Bird showroom in Charlotte is located in a beautiful industrial style building.  They offer a wonderful selection of hardware and bath products.

Ferguson is another great place for bath and kitchen hardware, but also carries a variety of brand name kitchen appliances and bath collections. Their showroom displays these kitchen appliances in a way that really allows for the visualization of the final product.
