Susan Gilbreth


My name is Susan Gilbreth and I have more than 35 years of experience in Design and Furniture Sales. I have assisted clients from around the world and have worked in furniture stores from New York to Florida.

High Point is my home and were I went do design school. I have clients that have worked with me for more than 25 years, and keep coming back with new projects. I love assisting everyone with large or small projects to make a house, a home. I would love to meet you and develop a unique look and style for your home.

To contact Susan, call 866.436.8056 ext. 2693.

What are clients saying about Susan?

”Susan Gilbreth is a wonderful consultant and person to work with. Her experience and knowledge about furnishings, colors and fabrics enabled us to make a good design and choices for a sofa, coffee table, chair, end table, lamp, and area rug for our newly completed Florida room. The room has a special feel, but its look is coordinated with adjoining areas of our home.” ~Richard & Sally, Rehoboth Beach, DE

“Susan, you are a talented designer and a hard worker who clearly cares about others in a way that goes far beyond what could be expected based on a business relationship. At every step of the way you have given us good input. You were endlessly patient and you were never condescending. If you were frustrated it never showed. You were kind and fun to work with and reinforced my view that the nicest people in the world come from North Carolina. I will do all that I can to send you more customers.” ~Gideon, Chicago, IL
