Cole’s was founded in 1969 by Howard & Dodie Cole, with 15 year old Jim Rease Cole working there after school from the get go. Originally opened as an art gallery, Jim was sent to apprentice as a custom framer. The store quickly evolved into the other categories as our customer base wanted us to pull it all together. Jim took over the business in 1989 when his mom and stepdad retired. Howard hired Jim’s future wife in 1984, and their son Zack has been working here since he was 15 in 2005, continuing on as the 3rd generation.
It’s been more than five years since we upgraded our 800 square foot family room. We thought we could do it ourselves, but thank goodness a friend told us about Jim Cole at Cole’s Interiors. He handled everything: structural improvements, flooring, area rugs, paint colors, lighting, furniture, and art work. We were absolutely thrilled with everything! The compliments have been pouring in ever since. Recently we added some additional furniture that blends with the original selections perfectly. Every one of Jim’s staff is efficient and courteous. And, to our delight, we received our order faster than expected. Great prices, too!
Very professional and knowledgeable. Cole’s is our “go to” for beautiful draperies and accessories for our home and business.
Owner is amazing and goes beyond 100%…
Very happy client.
One of the high points of our remodel/move. We started off with Costco’s referral service for Hunter Douglas shades, but the representative was pretty bad. I Google’d “Hunter Douglas” and up came Cole’s, as a showroom.
We were greeted by the owner, Jim Cole, who was very helpful and set up an in-home appointment for measuring and samples. We were expecting another representative, when Jim arrived at our home about a week later. Jim helped with our selection and his prices were comparable to Costco’s, even with Costco’s sale! Cole’s even provided temporary shades until the new shades arrived.
The installation was equally painless; prompt and efficient.
Jim called today to follow up on our installation and I told him how pleased we were with our experience.
We’ll be back for future projects! Support local businesses!
I have utilized the services of Cole’s Interiors on multiple occasions and have been very pleased with each encounter. Jim Cole and his staff provide excellent customer service, and the consultants are both talented and helpful. Jim has excellent taste and judgement and is a delight to work with. I will definitely return to Cole’s for help with all of my future projects.
We’ve been a loyal Cole’s customer for over 20 years. Four years ago we moved about 2 hours away from Cole’s, yet Jim still serviced our needs which included helping us pick out every one of our upgrades in our new home. I have used Jim Cole in 3 houses for everything from window coverings, paint color selection, furniture, accessories, carpeting and more.
I would highly recommend Cole’s Interiors. The owner Jim Cole is fantastic and really knows what he is doing. He helped us w/ a big remodeling project with everything from carpeting to wooden window shutters, to furniture (floor samples and custom sofas, bar stools, coffee tables, accessories, etc). He even framed some artwork and helped us pick out the color for painting each of our rooms. He also assisted w/ the artwork in my law firm, for very reasonable prices. He is willing to spend as much time as it takes and multiple trips to your home or office. Just can’t say enough good things about Jim. Try him, you’ll be glad you did!
