Our Story

Over a decade serving Houston

Named one of the city’s top 100 Independent Shops by the Houston Chronicle in 2013, James Craig Furnishings is a one-stop shop for fashion-forward home furnishings. Founded in 2006 by James Keathley, we opened our Washington Avenue showroom and design center in early 2008. After 10 years in the Washington Ave Corridor, we moved to an expanded showroom at the Houston Design Center in April 2018. Our showroom and design center features home furnishings from top American brands Vanguard Furniture, Lee Industries, Bernhardt Furniture, Arteriors and Brownstone Furniture among others.

A native Houstonian, James transitioned the project management skills he acquired in a corporate setting into a successful business focused on top-notch customer service and industry knowledge. As a regular attendee at the High Point Furniture Market – the largest home furnishings trade show in the world – James is constantly learning about future trends, manufacturing processes, and personalization choices for all categories of home furnishings.

Our Design Center

Our Houston showroom and design center offers numerous brands of home furnishings, each carefully selected and inspected by James & his team for quality construction, chic offerings, and environmental mindfulness. Because customer service is the core of our business model, James and his staff work hard to develop and maintain strong relationships with the craftsmen and artisans who produce pieces ordered through the design center showing the highest level of craftsmanship possible.

At James Craig Furnishings, we work closely with both our residential and professional design clients to help them navigate the vast selection of fabrics, leathers, and finishes available for complete personalization. We offer an expansive collection of living room, bedroom, and dining room furniture along with lighting, rugs, accessories and more to match the style of any interior design project. Whether modern or rustic, transitional or traditional, we can help you find the right piece to help you love your home like never before.
