About Bartons Interiors


There's a new business in Lake Kiowa...Barton's Interiors. In May, 2013, Laquita (Quita) and her husband, Joe, made a move to Lake Kiowa. After operating their Decorating business in Gatesville for 22 years, Joe asked, "What do you think about selling our house, our business property and our business and moving to be closer to the kids"? Wow, I had to think about that and process the idea for a couple weeks. After a little while, we started making plans to choose a new location. While looking at a few lakes, we focused on Lake Kiowa and began searching for property here.

A little about our Business
We operated a full store front on Main Street where we owned a 2500 square foot antique house that displayed our gallery of samples. Our store offered just about everything for the inside of a home: carpet, oriental rugs, hardwoods, furniture, upholstery, window treatments, wallpaper, lighting and ceiling fans, flower arrangements, custom picture framing and signed/numbered prints, and accessories. Our bridal registry offered the local brides china, crystal, glassware, flatware and other table-top items. Most everything we offered our customers was custom. If I couldn't find it, I would draw it and have it made. The fun is making things work for each individual customer.

A Little about Us
Joe and I were high-school sweethearts in Gatesville during the '60s. Joe retired from Ft Hood after working 31 years as Safety Director. We raised 3 children: one daughter and two sons who now live within an hour of Lake Kiowa. With 9 grandchildren, we are all enjoying the entertaining aspects of this area.
