"Our first encounter with Julie was when We purchased an unfurnished condo that needed everything. It usually takes days deciding on furnishings but Julie was phenomenal and it only took us 2 hours to pick out all furniture, drapes, paint colors and accessories. Not only did it turn out fabulous she was wonderful to work with! We have since purchased 2 more condos that Julie furnished and I get so many compliments. We have worked with a lot of designers and she is absolutely the best!"

From the moment I entered the store and received a warm welcome from Tammy, I knew I had come to the right store. Tammy provided phenomenal customer service and took the time to look things up online to show me different options. I will definitely be recommending Tammy and Furniture South to others. Thanks Tammy for making my experience enjoyable!

We cannot say enough great things about this location to purchase furniture! My husband and I had searched high and low from Fort Walton to Destin to Panama City going into many different furniture stores until we finally decided to walk into Furniture South in Santa Rosa Beach. As we walked in, we were instantly greeted by a lovely woman named Shirley. She asked us how we were and if we needed help with anything. We told her we were just looking and wanted to browse to look for some furniture items to go in our new house. She allowed us to look around and was not pushy but also came and helped us when need be. She took the time to look at our pictures of our new house and suggest options of what furniture items would look good in various rooms. We walked away that day and did not purchase, but we ended up coming back two days later and purchasing everything we needed from her because she was so knowledgeable, kind and helpful. The prices are great and the quality is high. We will definitely be back to shop with Shirley and Furniture South. Thank you, Brittany & Brandon Sigler

Have nothing but positive things to say about our experience with this company. The products are all amazing quality. Tammy is a rock star who not only put up with us but decorated our condo in a modern, updated style without breaking the bank. So easy to work with and wouldn't hesitate to do so again.

Tammy is the best thing to happen to us when we had to furnish a new home in Blue Mountain. She was so respectful of our budget and concerns and kept us informed and sometimes calm when things were delayed. I love her sense of style and merged my taste with her recommendations. I highly recommend Tammy and Furniture South and I will use them for future needs.

Tammy is AMAZING! We are 6 hours away from our beach house. She took our vision from an email and phone call and made it a reality. Trustworthy, honest, dependable, responsive, and a joy to work with! We walked into our beach house for the first time and it was totally ready to go! So easy!!!! I really wish I could put into words how wonderful our experience was!

- Josie Hardaway Jenkins

Outstanding place with outstanding customer service. Bridget is detail oriented and has a way about her that makes you very comfortable in her presence and Southern personality!

Furniture South is the best in Walton County! Tammy is THE girl you want to go to for any and all furniture/design needs!

- Lexi Davis

Tammy from Furniture South is amazing! She totally re-decorated our 2 condos, including installation, in about 2 weeks. Tammy went SO far above and beyond - checking on all of our vendors, offering loaner pieces of furniture and more. I couldn't be more thrilled & our first renter said the units were "gorgeous!"

- Lisa Wilcox

Bridget at Furniture South was a God-send for us when renovating our condo! She is now on speed dial - I'll call her every time we need furniture or design help in Sandestin!!!!

We used Tammy for our entire home in Sandestin. She's amazing at putting rooms together and so fun and easy to work with. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!

"Tammy at Furniture South was beyond amazing to work with. We recently purchased a house in FL, but live out of state. After I gave her the general direction I was wanting to go design wise, she ran with it! She is fast, has great taste, and won't rest until the client is completely happy. She stayed in close communication with me so I always knew exactly what was going on. AND BONUS we got our mattresses and TVs at Furniture South as well. Two less things to worry about! I would highly recommend Furniture South and Tammy as a designer. Our house looks so current and tasteful. Thank you Tammy for making a huge project stress free(when was the last time you thought of furniture design as stress free?!) and our house so beautiful!!"   -Anne McCoy Stella

"Julie and her team at Furniture South do a fabulous job! They helped us furnish our Model Home at Forest Lakes and we get lots of positive feedback on how beautifully the furnishings pull everything together for that WOW factor. They are easy to work with and have lots of talent. We would highly recommend Furniture South for your beach home furnishings!"

"As new home builders, we were directed to Furniture South for our furniture needs. Our experience was excellent from beginning to end.  Our designer, Tammy Mathews, provided excellent guidance as we made selections that would flow smoothly from room to room. Our discussions were open and easy whether on site or long distance.  Tammy's thoroughness, organization, and timing were on target and delivery and set up were completed ahead of time in our absence.  We walked in to a completed home!"

Dear Julie,

Last week Sue and I had our first chance to vacation at our Sandestin condo (no renovation work) and enjoyed all of the improvements, furniture, drapes, floors and granite that you were so instrumental in executing for us.  I even had some new rain shower heads installed. We just wanted to let you know what a fantastic job you did for us and how much we enjoyed working with and getting to know you a little.  We very much appreciate your great taste, sound advice and conscientiousness.  Thank you so much, and we hope to get to see you again in the future.

"I love it!  Thank you so much for sending me the picture...You probably notice that we could use some other new items, like a chair especially!  We will definitely be back to shop with you, and I have already told some friends who own at Gulf Place about your store and how nice you were to us.  The pillows look good with the picture above the couch!"

Dear Frank,

I just wanted to let you know that I have been working with one of your store employees, Becky, on a new bedroom set.  I finally talked the husband into some updates! Anyway, I just wanted to pass along how wonderful she was to work with. We loved everything that Becky came up with and purchased our set today!


Loved your store and all the fun things you have! Thank you for turning me onto it.

Kindest Regards,


It was such a blessing to walk in Furniture South & be greeted by Bridget, with her big smile & Southern personality! We are from Memphis & I was down there to select all of our furniture for our new beach home. I felt such a big responsibility to select everything by myself! Bridget made me feel so comfortable. There was no pressure, she let me take my time & was never pushy like so many in sales do. Instead, she let me think things over. Worked with me in the store but also from a distance if I were back in Memphis. She would send me updates, pictures of new things that might work. She even went out to our house as it was being built to send me pictures of how things were going, measure areas for furniture, or contact me with a sweet hello. I was assured any furniture I ordered they would store for me till our house was finished. The builders took much longer than we were first told but she always made me feel it wasn’t a problem. Bridget puts her customers first. She spends a lot of personal time & herself in her work. By the way, our home is awesome! Thanks again, Bridget!

"We had a great experience recently at Furniture South. We had some communication with Bridget Sexton on a prior visit and she followed up and has been very helpful. When we recently went to the store, she was out of town and we worked with Shirley Pitner. Shirley was great. We found several pieces that were in stock (yay!) and delivered to our condo within a couple of days (again, yay!). We really appreciated that they made the delivery so promptly as we were leaving soon, and we were able to see the furniture in place. The delivery guys were very capable, too. We love our selections. Shirley knew what we needed and found just the right pieces. We're very happy with the associates, the prices, and the store policies and will shop there again.”

"Very happy with the support and price of Furniture South. Our designer was always responsive and provided us with a lot of help for us being out of town. We had a issue with a floor project after the fact ( 6 months ) and she answered our concerns right away and coordinated with supplier to have the issue corrected in a very professional way. I will definitely use Furniture South services again."

"Julie Kovach, owner, has helped Ruckel Properties with multiple projects. She has impeccable taste and is very easy to work with. Their beautiful showroom has many choices of fabric and furnishings. She helped us coordinate paint colors, furniture, flooring, lighting, window coverings, art, and accessories. She was patient when we changed our minds during the planning process and made sure we were happy with everything. We will definitely use Furniture South again!”
