We had a wonderful experience working with Henry in purchasing furniture for our new home at Furnitureland South. Henry was extremely helpful in showing us the store and providing direction to areas where we had interest. He provided us background and pertinent information about the pieces we had interest in and the many manufacturers represented at Furnitureland.
We felt as though Henry was working for us..... and he was!
Our entire experience from choosing our items to purchase, type of payment, and explaining the delivery process was enjoyable. We never felt any pressure throughout the process. Whenever we had a question, Henry was professional and responsive. Henry took care of everything. That is real service! We were lucky to have worked with him during our Furnitureland South shopping experience, and we look forward to working with Henry in the near future. Bill and Regina M.

Henry Lum Varela, our designer, was absolutely out of this world! He was patient, knowledgeable, resourceful and talented. Henry had a marvelous way of genuinely listening to ideas and adding his expertise and thoughts without making us like he just took over our project.
The amount of time and effort that Henry gave us was beyond anything we've ever experienced. He followed up by email, text and phone frequently and in a timely manner.
I asked Henry for his cards because I would highly recommend him, and, as a result of him, Furnitureland South to any friends looking to purchase furniture! Anonymous
