What are clients saying about Cherry?
“Cherry was funny and charming in addition to being excellent at helping us choose an assortment of furniture for our new home. We worked nearly eight hours to complete three rooms. Cherry never missed a beat, remained cheerful and helpful as we made the usual amateur design gaffes, and gently circled us back to a beautiful combination of furniture styles and fabrics. We look forward to working with Cherry Yount again, and cheerfully place the look of our new home’s interior in her hands.”
~Dr. John Gwin, Chapel Hill, NC

“The huge task before me of choosing furniture for 2 rooms in my home turned into an enjoyable experience as Cherry Yount turned my job into a fun adventure. I really didn’t feel competent in putting together all the components needed to create something beautiful in my home, however, in working with Cherry my worries quickly were eliminated as she provided her expert advise and design knowledge.
It is amazing how much information the design staff at Furnitureland South has to know working in the largest furniture store in the world. But over and above just having information, Cherry used her expertise in combining styles, colors, and the right textures together. She worked tirelessly with me and never stopped until she found just the right combinations that I was happy with.
