I walked into the store (the one right next to Hungry Howies) not the store next to Furniture Country. It's important to me to make that distinction. Anyway, I was wearing brand new sneakers and a new shirt, shorts and hate were nice too. When I walked in I asked if I could use the restroom and said I was going to shop. The only guy in there said, "No it's out of order right now, when I use the bathroom I go to the other store." Not knowing at that time hat there was another store right in the same vacinity I thought that was odd. So I used the restroom at Hungry Howie's and waited for a lady friend of mine to help me shop. We both went in there and started to look around. The same guy came up to me and said, "I'm sorry we have a bathroom here if you need to use it, sometimes we get "street people coming in here". I explained that I went to Hungry Howie's already. I explained to him that I was in fact, not a street person and my friend and I immediately left! So begrudgingly I went to the other store and found the sofa I was shopping for. Store by Hungry Howie's gets a 0 rating and the other store gets a 5 star rating!

Furniture Counrty was the best place I went. Mr. John was very helpful and I had a great experience with him. Very helpful and furniture is well worth the prices and the quality is great! I will definitely refer anyone here and I will also be a returning customer!

We always check FC first and always ask for Joan; she shows us our options in store. If not the right item or color we go right to the catalogs. Good prices, service, delivery����

I was in desperate need for a new bed when I arrived at GDF. I had fractured a vertebra and getting out of bed was a painful nightmare. I needed a bed that would help me get to a standing position and I needed it immediately. I bought the iComfort adjustable bed. Since I couldn't wait even a week for delivery, we asked about buying the floor model. Even though it was going to be very difficult to get it down the narrow stairs, they did it, gave me a discount and delivered the very next business day. I am super happy with my experience at Gainesville Discount Furniture.

I disagree with some of the previous reviews. In addition to the store having a huge selection of supplies for sewing, I have had interactions with friendly and helpful employees. I know the cutting counter does get busy, but you can take a number and browse elsewhee in the store until your number is called. Love the place! I go in at least once a week!

They have a lot products. Their customer service is terrible they employ old people that do not have any people skills and are very impatient with the costumer. I try to go to other stores all the time.I only go the Joann fabrics when I can not find what I need any place else in Gainesville Fl. The rudeness is constant is not some time it is always. Can the Joann corporation do something?

This store has lots of great items. One thing it doesn't have is good customer service. I have walked around 3 different times and not ONCE has anyone approached me and asked if I need help. I have found 2 great cashiers but the ladies that cut the fabric, unhelpful and condescending. I am Hispanic and notice that with others they smile and talk and even offer ideas. Racist? If you are looking for attentiveness and friendly staff, this is not the place to shop. If that isn't important to you, then this is a great place to go.

This new location is huge and very well organized. They have a very large selection of everything. The material prices seemed very high but I was able to find the materials I needed all at this location. $14 a yard for camouflage material is crazy. I bought 2 40x84 curtain panels in the same pattern and material for $19. But over all I was pleased with this visit.
Tips & Advices
Provide the landscape designer with photos of designs you find attractive and might want to emulate. Gardening and architecture magazines can be useful in this regard. It's also important to let the landscape designer know how the  space should function. For example, a space that is being used as a play area for kids will have different objectives from a space being used to entertain friends. Finally, have a clear idea of how much you are looking to spend, since this will impact the build choices made by the landscape designer.
Interior designers can generally work on every type of room, but one should not assume that all of them can work on every type of space. More complicated projects--for example those in buildings with historic preservation strictures, or those that are going for sustainability certifications--will be suited to interior designers with specific expertise. Also, interior designers that have experience in a certain type of project may not want to take on projects that are outside their expertise. For example, an interior designer who has only worked on commercial projects may not want to do a small private home.
Every interior designer has their own style, but some designers are more versatile than others. Some really do specialize in functionality and code compliance, whereas others are more focused on aesthetics. Interior decorators are completely focused on visual impact, and therefore should be reviewed and selected based on how well their style is a match for the client’s tastes.
Full-service interior design starts with an assessment of a site and the client’s long-term needs for that space. It encompasses concept design, floor plans and lighting plans, providing project specifications to contractors, supervising  contractor negotiations and installations, applying for permits, and shopping for all the materials and pieces for the project. On top of this, there are the “decorator” deliverables, i.e. creating the aesthetic of the space, selecting wall colors/covers and furniture pieces, purchasing products and installing them.
An interior designer may come into a development project very early on, working with the developer and architect from the pre-construction phase. They may be the one to design floor plans, decide where to place interior walls, and supervise contractors that are installing elements of the build. They often work on commercial projects, although many of them work on residential projects. Interior designers can “switch hats” and do interior decoration, which means they are only focused on the aesthetic elements and visual components of a residence.
