Our Story

The 130 year history of Barnett Home Decor

Said to be "one of the most charming young ladies in town," by W.L. Glessner, editor of The Americus Ledger...

...perhaps it should come as no surprise that Miss Wheeler had so much influence over our founder.

William had firm plans to carry his bride back to Atlanta...

But instead, William was persuaded to settle in Edna's hometown of Americus, Georgia.

In addition to leather equipage for draft animals, Barnett began to make quilted cotton collar pads.

The post-war years brought on a boom in new home ownership, and with it, a heightened demand for quality soft furnishings at affordable prices.

Latex foam is a superior fill material because it lasts longer than other foams, it's machine washable, and unlike polyester fiber fill, it will never go flat.

While working as Vice President under her father, Barbara developed thriving relationships with major department stores and catalog companies.

After 30 years of making cushions in your choice of corduroy, or... more corduroy, Barbara introduced designer fabrics with a woman's insight into home decor fashions.

Barnett Home Decor

remains a Woman-Owned, Family Operated business to this day.
