Founded by Amanda Carreon, A Divine Closet is based on remarkable client service, quality craftsmanship, and fair prices.
Amanda Davis Carreon is a Gainesville native. She is the fourth generation in her family to be in the furniture and design industry. Her mother, Jerome Davis, owned a wonderful furniture store, The Glen Addie Collection, for most of Amanda’s childhood and Amanda always enjoyed setting up the vignettes and organizing the warehouse. It was at her mother’s furniture store where Amanda realized she had a passion for working with people, making beautiful spaces, and improving the functionality of every space she worked on.
After a wonderful childhood in Gainesville, Amanda, moved to Louisiana to attend Louisiana State University. She was awarded a full tuition scholarship in music and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education. She teaches privately and works as an Enrichment Teacher at Ft.

Amanda’s music background instilled in her, attention to detail and dedication to making each project as perfect as possible.
In college and after graduation Amanda worked for Chico’s, FAS, (a high end women’s clothing store) as the assistant store manager and found her love of fashion. With the family business in the furniture and design industry, her experience in the fashion industry, and her passion for functional and beautiful spaces led her to her start a custom closet business, A Divine Closet. For many years Amanda worked alongside Jerome at her Interior Decorating business, Jerome H. Davis Interiors, until her retirement in 2016 and now Amanda runs both A Divine Closet and Jerome H Davis Interiors.
