Kristen Perkins studied psychology in college - knowledge that has strengthened her interior design skills enormously, as she says connecting with people personally allows her to create a home that perfectly suits their wants and needs. Born in Maine, Kristen now claims North Carolina has her heart and is thrilled to be a part of the Furnitureland South family. “Interior designing has become such a passion of mine, and I feel so blessed to be here,” she said. “I want my customers to have a world class experience that they won’t get anywhere else, a friend in a salesperson and a happy place we create together.” Having travelled to every state on the east coast, Kristen is well-acquainted with coastal, farmhouse, mountainous, modern and rustic styles and is able to help her clients tell a story throughout their homes. Her favorite part of the design process is revealing the final product to her clients and seeing their faces light up when they realize they have created something truly unique. When Kristen is not creating masterpieces at Furnitureland South, she enjoys visiting museums, painting, cooking, long boarding in the park, hiking with her dogs and enjoying local restaurants with good company.
