In April 1983, John-William Fine Furniture & Interiors, Inc. was formed to distribute home furnishings and interior design services. The owners of the company wanted to fulfill a need they saw in the market to combine the resources of a stocking furniture dealer with the services of an Interior Designer. The founders of the company were William R. Sawyer, Jr. and John D. Snell. Our first store location opened January 1984 in San Antonio and our Austin store opened shortly there after. We are proud to have won many awards for our work including five MAX Awards for interior design and seven Design Excellence Awards.
