Named the 2010 Best Furniture Store in Columbia by the Free Times and the 2011 Best Home Furnishings Store by Columbia Metropolitan magazine, Whit-Ash Furnishings, Inc. has been filling homes' negative space with a panoply of attractive appointment for more than 40 years.

Mattresses, lamps, and accessories from 300+ manufacturers beckon shoppers hither, as does a large selection of oriental rugs carefully shackled to metal hangers to prevent any attempts at escape by flight.
