Locally owned Issis & Sons has the furniture, flooring and more to turn the vision of your home into a reality. Owner Steve Issis began selling rugs and flooring 35 years ago. Now he proudly boasts flooring stores in Greystone and Pelham as well as furniture galleries in Vestavia and Pelham.

“Through it all the mission of Issis & Sons has stayed the same – service and quality,” Operations
Manager Nancy Gowens explained.

In addition to home furniture, rugs and flooring, Issis & Sons also offers outdoor furniture, blinds, custom drapery and custom bedding. Gowens is proud that most of their products are American-made by quality companies.  

“We choose sellers who stand behind what they say, because that’s how Steve [Issis] built his reputation – staying true to his word.”

Issis & Sons is committed to giving each customer a unique home, and that is why they don’t buy furniture pieces in bulk, Gowens says. Design services are complimentary with any purchase.  This is often the key to turning a great piece of furniture into a great room.

“Most people, know some things they like but they don’t know how to put it together,” Gowens said. “It’s difficult to gauge what would work in your home if you’re not accustomed to doing it every day.”

Issis & Sons designers are happy to make home visits to give advice on layout, color schemes, and more. Every designer at Issis & Sons understands that each  customers has different needs so the rooms they design always reflect the customer’s tastes. It is always about the customer.

Issis & Sons also offers many design services for clients looking to customize their furniture as well as white-glove delivery service. Superior service has always set Issis apart.

“Every job we do – it’s not a sale, it’s a relationship,” Gowens said. “We stay with you throughout the entire process.”

After 35 years in business, Issis & Sons has developed a trustworthy reputation both in Birmingham and across the state.

“You’re not going to have to worry, are they going to be there next year?” Gowens said. Gowens has been part of the business for more than 18 years, and she said her favorite part is the staff and the clients she meets every day. In many cases, repeat clients become close friends.

“Some of my best friends are my clients,” Gowens said.

For homeowners ready to make a design change in their home, Gowens recommends taking time walking through one of the Issis & Sons stores. You can speak with designers and staff feeling confident that they will help find what you need and above all, honor your time
