Meet Our Designers

Here at Norwood Furniture in Gilbert, Arizona we pride ourselves in design, not just selling home furnishings, but also creating a space where our clients will truly feel at home. Our complimentary interior design program allows our 12 interior designers to get a sense of your design and home furnishing needs, visit your home to plan out the space, and choose each piece of furniture, art, and accessory to perfectly compliment what you already have in your room (within a budget of course).

You read the decorating magazines, peruse the drool-worthy homes on Pinterest, and watch all the HGTV shows. You see many different room settings you love but are struggling on deciding how and where to start. Between purchasing furniture, choosing paint colors, deciding on a layout, choosing lighting and accessories for the space, achieving the look and feel you want for your home can be a daunting and time consuming endeavor.

This is where Norwood Furniture can help, our skilled and experienced interior designers will assist you in creating the home you have always dreaming of.

Our Home Plan Interior Design is an efficient process that helps you develop, formulate and refine your ideas into a beautiful, realistic plan within an agreed upon budget. This service has helped a countless number of our clients avoid costly mistakes and achieve the room and home that they and their families have always wanted!
