About

Welcome to the Custom Home Furniture Galleries blog!

As you may know from our website we are the Gray brothers – Kevin and John. Custom Home Furnishings, LLC, was started in November of 1995 out of necessity. Necessity for us because we no longer wanted to work for other people and we saw a need for a store where everyone was treated fairly and honestly. Our first location opened on Market Street in Wilmington, N.C. As the next 8 years went by we continued to grow.

Then a unique opportunity presented itself. The high-end store in town, Murrow Furniture Galleries, was ready to sell out. Again we quickly jumped on the opportunity. This was an opportunity to expand our lines, expand on the sheer numbers of our products and give us a chance to increase our product categories. This seemed like the answer to our prayers. May 1, 2008, we opened Custom Home Furniture Galleries. It is a 50,000 sq ft furniture store offering coastal to traditional looks with price points to meet any budget.

As we continue to grow and meet the needs of our customers, we find ourselves entering the wide world of the web on a grander scale. Beyond simply offering a place to shop and buy our quality furniture, we would like the opportunity to get to know you more on a personal level. To walk alongside you during the journey of transforming the house that you own, into home that welcomes you and your family each day.

Our blog is actually something new in the world of consumer and wholesaler. It is a creative venue where we will be able to share ideas on design. Local interior designers and our sales staff will be sharing their expertise, along with answering common questions that arise during most renovating projects. We will be highlighting some of our manufactures and the process that they have when it comes to creating the furniture that you are purchasing. Of course we will be showcasing some of our favorite pieces as well.

Over the years our philosophy of treating our customers like family has always helped many of our customers become our dear friends. We look forward to the same happening through our blog.

Welcome to a small part of our home, we can’t wait to get to know you better across the coffee table.

Kevin & John Gray

Great meeting you both the other day. Shirley was so helpful with all our furniture needs. Steve and I had a fun day shopping and love your store. (had shopped previously when it was Murrow) We also enjoyed seeing that you carry many American made brands. Thanks again for a wonderful shopping experience. We look forward to seeing our new pieces in our home.

Hi, Looking to purchase a couple of pieces from yutz woodworking but am having difficulty locating a retailer that would ship to CA. By any chance do you have that capability? Many thanks. Rhys
