Explore our history and how we’ve gotten where we are today.
Corporate Interiors was founded
George Piccirilli began Corporate Interiors becoming a Knoll dealer in the St. Louis market. With Knoll as a backbone, 4 employees and a 2,000 square foot showroom, our dealership was born.
After 35 years, George announced his retirement in early 2020.
Relocated to a business park in Overland, MO. Now that we were in a larger space we grew to 20 employees.
Second Move in a Year
We were growing so quickly that we outgrew our Overland location. When we moved to Brentwood, just off of Highway 40, our 42 employees were in a 10,000 square foot showroom with convenient access to travel throughout the region to meet with our clients.
We doubled in size through a couple of key acquisitions in the St. Louis Market positioning us to more effectively serve mid-sized companies, education institutions and government organizations.
With this acquisition, we became the exclusive Knoll dealership in St. Louis.
Over the span of two years, CI Select acquired The Invironmentalists, a commercial flooring installation company and Savi, an audio-visual technology company. The addition of these two companies expanded our capabilities into designing and delivering integrated workplaces while furthering our consulting practice.
Rebranding from Corporate Interiors to CI Select
We now expanded our philosophy to deliver more than furniture. We are becoming more consultative offering additional services to our clients.
Relocated to our Current Showroom
Our current location features 18,000 square feet of office and showroom space. This location is conveniently accessible to our 50,000 square foot warehouse that is the logistics and staging area for all of our St. Louis inventory and installation.
Partnering with Knoll, we launched a new showroom in Omaha, Nebraska. With many Fortune 100 companies calling Omaha home, the opportunities are tremendous.
Opened Columbia, MO Office
Led by Jessica Ayllon, we're able to better service clients across Columbia, Jefferson City and throughout Central Missouri.
New Ownership Team
With the retirement of George Piccirilli in early 2020, Claire Erker, Brian Heigel and Jenelle Moore became the new ownership team.
Herman Miller Announces Acquisition of Knoll
Herman Miller and Knoll combine forces to create the new MillerKnoll. MillerKnoll is a collective of design brands coming together to remake modern for the 21st century.
CI Select announces the acquisition of New Paradigm Interiors
With the acquisition of New Paradigm Interiors, CI Select becomes a certified MillerKnoll dealer in the markets we serve.
It all starts with our core values
We know who we are as a company and we know what works for us with our clients. We have four simple yet essential core values that we strive to live up to in everything we do. We know the work we do is critical for our clients’ businesses and cultures, and while we’re at it, we aim to have as much fun as we can along the way.
Our four core values are:
Give it our all
We do what it takes. We are detailed, responsive and goal driven. We try to be the best for the team, not the best on the team.
Enjoy doing it
We are positive and passionate. We respect our clients, our vendors and ourselves. We want to come to work and we like who we get to work with.
We are professional, hyper-focused on our clients’ needs. We are accountable to fulfilling expectations. We do what’s right, not what’s easy.
We are constantly improving processes and procedures. We are quick to mentor and also quick to learn. We raise the bar for next time.
