With so many different furniture stores to choose from, it can be difficult to determine which ones truly offer the best furniture. Decorum is a premium furniture store in Norfolk with the awards to prove its expertise and dedication to the community. 

Why Decorum is Consistently the Best

While many people may not recognize it, furniture and home decor are important aspects of your life. They can transform a room from feeling cold and uninviting to an oasis of comfort and togetherness. Where you purchase your furniture is just as important as the furniture itself. At Decorum, we take a hands-on approach. We strive to help you find the perfect furniture piece you are looking for while also providing superior customer service. 

When you walk into our furniture store in Norfolk, you will be greeted by a showroom with thousands of furniture pieces and home decor options. This can be an overwhelming experience, but soon a design consultant will approach and help you through the process. We can even custom-order furniture pieces to the exact specifications you want.

This dedication to our customers is noticed and appreciated, and it is one of the many reasons we are considered the best furniture store in Norfolk. But don’t just take our word for it! We have been nominated and received a large collection of awards to prove our expertise and dedication.

Experts in the Furniture Business

Since its opening in the mid-1970s, Decorum Furniture has wowed and impressed its customers with its superior customer service and high-quality furniture options. The dedication that Decorum provides to its customers has enabled it to become a lauded expert in the furniture business. 

Decorum has been granted a number of awards that demonstrate its expertise. Every year the Virginia Pilot readership votes on the best businesses in Norfolk. The dedicated Decorum customers have allowed us to receive the “Best of Norfolk” away every year from 1988 to 2021. Similarly, the readership of Outwire 757 has voted us Best Furniture Store in 2021. In addition, Decorum has been voted Best Furniture, Southside, by Coastal Virginia Magazine (most recently in 2021), and was chosen as “Retailer of the Year” by Retail Alliance in 1999 and most recently in 2021. Decorum has also received a “Lifetime Achievement Award” from Retail Alliance in 2016.

These awards, and many others, demonstrate the expertise and commitment to customer satisfaction that Decorum practices on a daily basis.

Dedicated to the Community

In addition to its expertise in the furniture industry, owners Claus Ihlemann and Robert G. Roman have been recognized by city, state, and federal leadership for their work in building a better community, and for proactively supporting members of the LGBTQ in their quest for equality and improved lives. As members of the LGBTQ+ community themselves, Claus and Robert have dedicated their lives to creating a safe place for others. Their dedication has been recognized through the many accomplishments and accolades that they have received. 

In 2009, Claus Ihlemann was voted “OUTstanding Virginian” by Equality Virginia. Later, in 2014, Robert G. Roman was also awarded “OUTstanding Virginian” by Equality Virginia. Similarly, Decorum Furniture received the Lifetime Achievement Award by Retail Alliance in 2016. 

Through each of these awards, it is evident that Claus and Robert’s dedication to the community come through in every aspect of their lives. From personal to professional, Decorum Furniture has become a pillar of the community. It is no surprise that it is the best furniture store in Norfolk.
