With both a Bachelor’s and a Master's degree in Interior Design, Kate Joy’s passions lie in historic preservation and sustainable design. After graduating from Illinois State University she worked for a residential design firm based in Chicago where she specialized in kitchen and bath design. Her love for historic architecture brought her to North Carolina to pursue her graduate degree, and she has since fallen in love with the climate and southern hospitality.
In her free time, Kate relishes time outdoors with her husband and two shelties. She also enjoys taking photographs, refinishing furniture, and baking.
Working with Kate Joy, Designer, was truly a JOY! I made a special purchase for an organization and Kate researched options and offered advice that helped our team make the perfect selection for our needs. I am most grateful for the excellent customer service. Thank you, Kate! - Tina S.

My wife & I are first-time FLS customers, and we wanted to express our appreciation for Kate Joy's excellent service, diligence, advice, patience & attention to detail, which epitomizes excellent customer service.
With the expert assistance of Kate, we were able to purchase a house-full of beautiful furniture! Kate demonstrated great command of the products offered at FLS, multiple manufacturers & product quality. She provided us with great insights under extremely challenging circumstances; our house floor plans & dimensions were approximate at best, and over two days in which my wife was ill, whereby Kate therefore could only communicate with my wife by phone.
My wife & I are very selective & particular with our furniture needs & quite proud of the homes we’ve furnished in the past. With Kate Joy’s incredible knowledge, patience & guidance, we very much look forward to the day we receive our furniture & each day thereafter.
In this regard, we would like to applaud & recognize Kate Joy for her excellent customer service & professionalism. Thank you for everything, Kate. - Eric & Lena Y.
