long have you been in business?
Owner Mike Day established the business

furniture. As he realized the need for quality furnishings
in the area, he began to focus his efforts more on furniture.

a very unique home furnishings company. The design staff
at Exotic Home has been involved in creating some of the
most unique homes along the East Coast.

Virginia at 819 Granby Street. Exotic Home also has the
largest in-stock warehouse in the area, which houses over

artwork and accessories.

the process from design to delivery. As a manufacturer,
direct importer and retailer, Exotic Home is uniquely

All of our furniture is made from
solid hardwoods. The craftsmanship of our wood furniture
is the highest quality in design construction and materials.
Our production lines are carefully managed and quality-controlled
to ensure consistency. We also import many one-of-a-kind
pieces, British Colonial and Asian antiques and unique
accessories. These furnishings tell a story and will be
around for generations to come. Today’s marketplace
is filled with particleboard, veneers and paper backings,
which can never be refinished. Our furniture is timeless
and very durable. In addition, our custom upholstery and
accessory lines are selected with the same high quality
standards. Our design staff will custom design your home
to be distinct using these unique and fascinating pieces.
