Downtown Statesville is now home to Dixon Furniture, a unique furniture store that focuses on your needs with personal, one-on-one sessions. This alternative experience in buying furniture and designing your home focuses on style design at your price point. One might think the showroom is a bit small for a furniture store, but that is exactly how Yashimi and Perez Dixon planned it. When you walk in, it feels like you are sitting in a friend's home, just chatting at the dining table. The inviting plush chairs, beautiful art on the walls, and floral arrangements add to the welcoming feeling. Although everything in the showroom (including the art and floral arrangements) is for sale, the idea behind Dixon Furniture is to get to know each client and their needs, then find or custom make the furniture to fit their needs. This one-on-one customer service gets lost in the box stores, and the Dixons plan to bring it back to Downtown Statesville. Perez grew up in Statesville and brought his wife, Yashimi, a Washington DC native, back to his hometown last year in search of a new career that would allow him to create a legacy. With a background in retail and a passion for design, Yashimi was committed to the idea as soon as Perez pitched it. The couple could see the growth and opportunity in Downtown Statesville, and wanted to be part of the positive change. They are excited to be here, and look forward to making many clients' furniture dreams come true!
