Meet the Owner

Susan San Souci is an ASID practitioner of design and owner of The Designer’s Market, Inc. Having first visited the Highlands/Cashiers area in 1997, she and her husband Jim made the decision to purchase a vacation home in the area in 2001, and by 2009, they became full-time residents. Once here, it wasn’t long before Susan began to realize her aspirations to leave the successful career she had cultivated in the corporate world to fill an untapped niche in the local market. That dream became a reality in 2007 when she opened a referral based, by appointment only design business. Since the company’s early beginnings, The Designer’s Market has evolved into the area’s largest design center, catering to remodels and new construction of both residential and commercial spaces. The 12,000sq ft design facility features mid to high end wall coverings, floor coverings, fabrics, draperies, paint, area rugs and cabinetry to meet every need and every budget. Susan and her team of hand-picked professionals are committed to providing each client and showroom visitor with the utmost care and attention. Listening, building relationships, supporting clients through the design phase and on through the construction process is what we do. The end result: transforming ideas into a beautiful reality that our clients can take pleasure in for years to come.
