A Bit About Our History

Luxe Home Interiors, formerly Norwalk Furniture, has been a cornerstone of Vancouver Island since 1995. From our inception, our focus has been on providing exceptional service through our talented interior designers. Despite challenges like the global financial crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic, Luxe has remained steadfast in its commitment to quality, integrity, and inspiring design. 

May 1st is becoming a BIG DAY for Luxe. On May 1st, 2021, we moved to our current location at 564 Yates Street in Victoria’s historic downtown. We are so pleased with this move and what it has meant for immersing ourselves in the vibrant urban energy and inspiration of the heart of our beautiful city. Despite all the changes and moves over the years, we’ve always continued to uphold our legacy of excellence, which isn’t going to change now.
