Our Story

It all began with a philosophy. Furniture shopping can and should be easy and enjoyable.

With years of industry experience and huge hearts, founders Gary and Babette Ward set out to create something special. A place where employees are proud of what they do, and customers fall in love with their home all over again. The formula was simple; a beautiful furniture store full of quality products with a focus on customer satisfaction. The elimination of sales commission makes for a more relaxed experience where time is taken to find just the right fit, coordinating everything from floor to ceiling. And with that, Babette’s Furniture & Home was established.


Stroll Down Memory Lane...

  • The Original Babette's Opens

    Gary and Babette Ward officially opened Babette’s as a gift shop in October 1988. It was housed in a doublewide trailer across from the Lake Square Mall in Leesburg, and the Wards were the only employees.
  • Quickly Gaining Popularity

    The company quickly soared when Gary, who had spent his career as an executive for a chain furniture company, added furniture to the inventory.
  • Babette's Builds Current Location

    Starting to look more familiar? In 1995 the current Babette's building was built.
  • Continued Growth Brings Expansion

    The 2004 expansion added more showroom space to feature the latest in home furnishings and home décor. The no-pressure sales philosophy combined with quality furniture, great service, fair prices, and visionary leadership—is why Babette’s remains a leader in the furniture industry.
  • Babette's warehouse opens


    In 2006 Babette's opened a warehouse, the hub of distribution. The warehouse is also home to the highly coveted "warehouse sale". The warehouse sale features discontinued, returns, and scratch/dent merchandise. 

  • Lifestyle Furniture by Babette's is opened


    In 2015, the Wards opened Lifestyle Furniture by Babette’s, a 23,000-squarefoot facility located adjacent to its flagship store. The addition of Lifestyle Furniture allowed for space for even more quality furniture lines, focusing on fashion forward styles, family friendly prices, and quick delivery, while offering the same outstanding customer service that Babette’s had become known for.

  • Babette's Brownwood location opens

    In October of 2018 Babette's opened its Brownwood Paddock Square location in The Villages. This beautiful location features 12,000 square feet of design inspiration and a full service design studio. Browse over 65 feet of fabric selection from over 7 top custom upholstery lines making for infinite possibilities. With thousands of accessories and accent pieces changing weekly, you are sure to find the perfect items to complete the look of every room. Brownwood offers a wide range of collections and price ranges from Ashley to Lexington.
  • Proud Past, Brighter Future

    Thirty years and a few locations later, Babette’s is still family-owned. Our 55,000-square-foot building has become one of the county’s largest home décor and furniture stores. Today, the company’s 80 plus employees work in various departments: sales, marketing, accounting, commercial design, warehouse, and distribution.
