About Us

Sisters Karlyn Pugh and Kim Smith are co-owners of Rubies Home Furnishings in Laurel, Mississippi. This dream became a reality after many of success in a family-owned business, City Home Center (CHC). While CHC originally carried flooring, kitchen and bath product lines, the store ultimately offered furniture and accessories to accommodate Laurel's need for a complete home store. Ultimately, the demand for these increased product lines required more space, which also allowed a natural division in products. Flooring, tile and home building supplies are now housed at the City Home Center store, and Rubies earned its own name in 2017. The name pays tribute to their father’s mother, Ruby Sherman, a true Proverbs 31 woman. Proverbs 31:10, “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.”

Rubies proudly offers one of the largest selections of furniture, home decor, gifts, bedding, mattresses and custom floral design in the Southeast. A true delicacy for a small town,  Rubies serves as a one-stop shop for all things for the home.
