Thomasville has home furnishings like living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, office furniture, entertainment centers, and more. Design consultants are on site and available through home calls to guide you through the maze of colors, fabrics, textures, and more. The Raleigh location, in Brier Creek, is a two-story showroom that will inspire you.

The Raleigh store also carries Drexel Heritage and Henredon furniture. Other Thomasville showrooms in North Carolina include Greenville, Jamestown, and Pineville. Collections include the popular Ernest Hemingway®, Fredericksburg, Cinnamon Hill, and Modern Theory. New collections are introduced twice a year. Floor samples and clearance items are available, particularly at this time of year (after the High Point Furniture Market). A great financing program and gift cards are also available.

Even though Memorial Day comes at the end of the month, Thomasville has something very special to offer you and your family--the Memorial Day Sale starts right now! They offer huge savings with some extra-special savings on several sofa frames. And don't forget the wide selection of area rugs, wall art, accessories, and custom soft goods with no interest financing (with payments) through January 2014.

"Happy Mother's Day to You and Everyone!"

From one mother to another,

You are awesome and rock like no other.

Proud parent that you are,

You are one to count on, no matter how far.

Thank God my mother is still alive.

Without her I wouldn’t be able to even drive.

She is 84 and still going strong.

Though she has her moments, in my eyes, she can do no wrong.

I love my mother with all my heart.

She is my middle, my end, and my start.

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers everywhere!

Mothers are a gift to everyone and they really do care!

"Mother's Every Day"

Instead of having just one day dedicated to Mother’s Day;
Why not celebrate Mother’s Every Day?

Mothers cook, clean, raise children, work, and take care of everything else aboard.
But, mothers deserve constant recognition and never-ending reward.

Mothers need love, devotion, and attention so we can continue to grow.
Because being a good mother requires many sacrifices you never even know.

Watching “An Imitation of Life,” I learned exactly what sacrifice really means.
Looking at my mother, now 84, I realize my sacrifices to her mean nothing but beans.

Being that I don’t have to struggle like she did while she raised me.
And understanding how blessed I am to still have her, is quite easy to see.

With life so full of uncertainties and the world out-of-control today.
My recommendation…Praise our Mother’s Every Day.

"Our Struggles - A Poem for Us and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."

Being that 2010 was such an eventful year;
My mind, body, and my soul now know no fear.

Unemployed, struggling to survive, and barely making ends meet;
Believing in GOD and me, conquered many a defeat.

Head-of-household, trying to raise a teenage child;
Many days seemed so hectic, making life less than mild.

Trying to hold onto a meaningful relationship with your significant other;
Only to lose the battle to ongoing problems faced with your child and your mother.

Struggles big; struggles small.
No matter who you are, struggles plague us all.

Struggling to survive, surviving just to struggle.
Not knowing where to go, where to run, or even where to snuggle.

Beating your fists up against the wall;
Not knowing where to turn or whom to call.

But, nothing compares to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s struggle; that between black and white.

And by joining in the celebration of his birthday on January 17th, it is as J. J. Evans “Good Times” often said, “Dyn-o-mite!”

Happy Valentines Day ("Love Is A Many Complicated Thing")

She loves you; she loves you not.
He loves you; he loves you not.

First, you spend every waking moment together.
Then, you can’t wait until the day you find someone better.

Then, that special day in February suddenly comes creeping around.
And buying that lovely gift or doing that extra deed, you're now bound.

Do you still take your selfish girlfriend out for that a very pricy dinner?
Do you still show him love, regardless of his recent blunder?

If you’re lucky enough to have the love of a lifetime,
Don’t take it for granted, since another may be waiting in line.

Don’t panic if you don’t have someone to wear that shiny, new bling,
Just remember, you're not alone because, “Love Is a Many Complicated Thing


Sure, lovers come and lovers go.

But, true love doesn't just go with flow.

Giving totally to someone is probably our greatest fear.

But, if and when you do, it can be an experience, so far; so near.

Being with someone who just doesn't care,

Is like being with someone just for a dare.

And, when it's finally over and you go your separate ways,

You ask yourself, "Was it really worth it, wasting all those days?"

And, just how would someone like me know?

Well, let's see, I've been divorced long enough to know that he's remarried to Mrs. So and So.
