When you think of Hiltz Lauber, you probably think really nice carpet, right? Well, Hiltz Lauber does carry an enormous selection of wall to wall options, area rugs and natural fibers like seagrass, sisal and wool with literally thousands of samples on hand to choose from, but did you know that the second floor is home to one of the best home furnishings stores in town?
Hiltz Lauber, located in downtown Homewood was founded in 1991 by Joseph Lauber. I first met Joe when I was building my current home in 2006. Joe and his brother, Nick are two of the nicest people you will ever meet and they truly took the time to get to know my style, decor needs and budget constraints, streamlining the process and making it super easy. At the time the furniture showroom on the second floor, run by Nick, was “to the trade” only. I had no idea it even existed until my decorator sent me there to look at a few things. The store, now managed by Shannon, instantly became and continues to be one of my personal favorites. When I learned that they have since opened to the public, I knew I had to share this with our readers!
When it comes to home furnishings, Hiltz Lauber raises the bar offering one of Birmingham’s most curated selection of fine furnishings ranging in design from classic to traditional to modern and contemporary. The showroom displays mix the various styles to create a livable (and enviable!) masterpiece. It also makes it really easy to envision how a piece could live nicely, say next to your grandmother’s antique dresser or sideboard.
Hiltz Lauber is Birmingham’s only dealer of Baker furniture and carries several other quality furniture lines and one-of-a-kind collectibles from Europe and South America. They also sell Lucy Smith Designs, a StyleBlueprint favorite! (See our FACES profile on Lucy HERE).
Hiltz Lauber offers everything from custom upholstery, dressers, shelving, cabinets, mirrors, artwork, lamps and light fixtures in addition to all that great carpet. Before you contemplate a purchase from a big box store or catalog, come see what Hiltz Lauber has to offer. It’s stores like Hiltz Lauber where unique treasures and great values are found. And, even if you don’t purchase, this store will inspire you to look at your home with new eyes.
