The Shubert Story
Since January 1, 1980, Jim and Linda Shubert have been building this business with persistence and dedication. They launched the venture over 30 years ago as newlyweds with two hundred dollars and an idea.
Linda Shubert, the creative and merchandising entity of the team, uses her interior design background to equip the store with the industry’s finest merchandise and personnel. While Jim Shubert is retired now, he has a team that keeps all the moving parts working. Our goal was to create the American dream for our employees and ourselves.
Shubert Design is not the biggest design firm nor the largest retail furniture distributor, but well respected in the industry. We never advanced our business via leverage or loan. We grew naturally by slowly building up a solid financial base. Today, because of our strong foundation, we are able to negotiate better deals with manufacturers and pass the savings along to our customers.
Meet Our Team
I have been in the furniture and interior design industry for over thirty years. I do design work for our our St. Louis based customers, but I also do interior and commercial design around the United States. Upholstered pieces, case goods and accessories are all hand selected for their quality and value. My goal is to offer the highest quality merchandise at the best value. Come in and enjoy our beautiful displays.
Kirsten Wyman is one of our full-time designers with over 20 years of experience here at Shubert Design. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from Southeast Missouri State in 1995. She is a designer in demand with a specialty in space planning. She loves helping her clients pick the perfect furniture for their wants and needs. Whether you need a house full of furniture, or that one special piece to complete your room, let Kirsten make your house into a home.
I have been working in the field for 20 years. I love helping clients make the right choices to create a beautiful and warm, cozy home. I do this by creating an atmosphere people want to spend time in by infusing family antiques or a special piece from a vacation with newly acquired pieces that reflect a families’ lifestyle and truly makes it feel like home.
For the last 17 years, I have enjoyed working with designs that cross many style lines, infusing them with a fresh take on classic designs. I love creating and embracing today’s modern look with minimalizing style to make your home beautiful.
Making your home a place of beauty and function is one of the most gracious ways to express yourself. Our home allows us the unique freedom to be surrounded by our favorite colors, textures, and objects. Ultimately, it’s the one place where we can provide for all aspects of our personality – the sophisticated and the simple, the warm and the cool, the bold and the introspective.
I have been in the furniture industry for over 30 years. I hold a BA in Art and Design. Furnishing your home should not be a chore, it should be enjoyable. Whether you come to our showroom, or you would like for myself to personally visit you in your own home to assist you, our collaboration should result in a beautiful home for you and your family to enjoy for years to come.
I have been in the home interior business for over 25 years. I have a degree in Fine Arts and am certified in Home & Kitchen planning. My main goal is to make my clients’ home represent their wants and needs. I am happy to help my clients find that one little piece to fill in and complement their existing pieces, or help with the entire home!
