In 2005, Kevin Kenney, owner of KDR Designer Showrooms, purchased the landmark Sunshine Drapery property with the idea to transform it into a one-stop location for home and office interiors. Kenney wanted St. Louis to have a compact version of more expansive design centers found in larger cities, in order keep the business local.
“It’s a unique destination devoted exclusively to interiors, in a location convenient from anywhere in the metro area, showcasing the finest of interior products in beautiful showrooms with expert service,” Kenney says.
