In 2005, Kevin Kenney, owner of KDR Designer Showrooms, purchased the iconic Sunshine Drapery property with the idea of ââtransforming it into a unique place for home and office interiors. Kenney wanted St. Louis to have a compact version of the larger design centers found in big cities, in order to keep local activity going.
âIt’s a unique destination devoted exclusively to interiors, in a convenient location to anywhere in the metro area, showcasing the best interior products in beautiful showrooms with expert service,â said Kenney.
With 100,000 square feet on 7 acres, the Interior Design Center in St. Louis is home to seven local businesses with state-of-the-art showrooms. In addition, the complex is home to five major interior design companies.
Showrooms range from Floor Source, the region’s premier flooring showroom, to Walbrandt Technologies, the very best in home automation technology. Autoco has the products and services to help you replace one appliance or your entire kitchen, and if you’re looking for stylish plumbing fixtures, Premier Plumbing Studio will enhance your space effortlessly.
The interior design center also has everything you need for any space renovation, such as creating cutting edge office interiors with Working Spaces’ team of office design experts and in commercial furniture. Beck Allen Cabinetry will help you create an award-winning kitchen or bathroom, working on multi-million dollar homes, historic renovations and more.
