CHD Interiors is an award-winning custom interior design firm based in Murrells Inlet and Mount Pleasant.

CHD Interiors two retail locations feature one-of-a-kind home furnishings, accessories, antiques, lighting, fabrics, tiles, floor and wall coverings, and more. Our services include new buildings and renovations. We offer space planning and schematic design, color consultation, furniture, and fabric selection, accessorizing, and decorating. Our featured Dream Home Project is a new build on the Waccamaw River.

Tell us about your core values and the vision for the work you do: 
When CHD Interiors was established in 1977, our philosophy was that your home should be a reflection of your personality and this philosophy stands true today, 44 years later. Owner and Lead Designer Lance Griffith has earned a reputation for providing quality service with an uncommon design approach. His signature style, referred to as “Lowcountry Chic,” embraces the comfortable, relaxed lifestyle of the South. Whether you enjoy traditional or contemporary interiors or a blending of the two, we encourage your design to reflect a bit of the grace and elegance of the Lowcountry style.

Our talented staff has added a unique touch to projects along the Eastern Seaboard and in the Caribbean. From Manhattan lofts to luxurious estates in the Florida Keys, we’re proud of our portfolio showcasing traditional, coastal, and contemporary designs. Our designers make frequent buying trips to international destinations to assure that we keep our finger on the pulse of trends in the design industry. Whether you prefer one-of-a-kind vintage pieces or brand-new furnishings custom made to fit your personality, Lance, Patty, and our CHD team will work with you to find the elements to match your style and complete your dream home.

Tell us about this project. What was asked of you and what did you do?
This home was built by a client we’ve worked with many times over the years. She loves warm, colorful interiors with customized finishes and has a great design eye herself. We incorporated lots of old English architectural elements into the design and included beautiful English country house antique furniture pieces. The floors throughout the home were crafted out of old barn wood siding and each piece was hand-finished. The sliding glass wall allows the living room to flow into the large screened porch. If the sum of a home is more than its individual parts, then this home clocks in at about 150%. These clients are some of our favorite people professionally and personally.
