Tate's Design was inspired by the Tate Furniture Company, founded by our father, George Tate, in 1946.


He taught us through his business and personal philosophy, to stay committed to treating our clients fairly, and always working hard to achieve their goals. We enjoy getting to know each client on a personal level and as a result, we are able to create a beautiful living or working environment that exceeds their expectations. We are a professional and fun company to work with, and our dedication to our clients is an essential part of our business.


Susan Tate
Partner & Lead Designer

Susan has been an interior designer for more than 35 years, as well as a professional member of the Interior Design Society. She graduated from Winthrop University with a degree in Interior Design.

With Susan's broad knowledge of furniture styles and her strong color sense, she feels comfortable helping clients with any look they desire - from traditional to eclectic or European, specializing in all types of window treatments and accessories. Her goal is to help her clients create a feeling in their home or office that reflects their personality and lifestyle.

Susan feels that each project is like a puzzle with many parts that need to be selected to fit together to create the end result that leaves the client saying, "Wow! This is exactly what I wanted."
