The year was 1945. Times were tough and frustrating for everyone. But three men, Guy, Cliff and Johnny Martin, a dad and his two sons, had good heads, big hearts and strong backs. This was the nucleus that was the beginning of Martin Furniture and Design. Located in beautiful downtown Gainesville, Georgia, Martin Furniture and Design had its birth in the same historic building in which it resides today. In fact, it was one of the few buildings that survived the F-4 tornado of 1936, the 5th deadliest one in U.S. history to date.

Our store has seen its share of changes over the years—a second floor, a new and improved office space, painting, the loss of two of its original founders, and a recent name change from Martin Furniture Company—but Martin Furniture and Design's business philosophy hasn't been altered one bit. Today, under the ownership of Savannah & Brian Bailey the motto of 1945 remains: “Your home is our business”.

Our customers are treated with such great service, respect and appreciation that Martin Furniture and Design has become known as a truly friendly place to do business. Our sales associates are some of the most knowledgeable and fashion savvy women around. They have years of fashion and furniture experience, and our customers will enjoy a relaxed browsing and shopping experience with no high pressure sales tactics. Furthermore, after purchase, you'll find our delivery staff is a group of efficient, competent, and courteous men. We hope you'll find our store full of lovely things for your home at competitive prices.
