CI Select History

Explore our History

We are dedicated to providing innovative, adaptable solutions that support an ever-changing business environment. That's exactly what has driven our growth.

Explore our history and how we’ve gotten where we are today.

1985

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.

1990

First relocation

Relocated to a business park in Overland, MO. Now that we were in a larger space we grew to 20 employees.

1990 V2

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.

1991

Acquisition Expansion

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.

2005

Additional Acquisitions

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.

2006

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.

2015

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.

2017

Omaha Expansion

Partnering with Knoll, we launched a new showroom in Omaha, Nebraska. With many Fortune 100 companies calling Omaha home, the opportunities are tremendous.

2020

Opened Columbia, MO Office

Led by Jessica Ayllon, we're able to better service our clients in Central Missouri including Steven's College, Columbia College and the University of Missouri, Columbia.

Spring 2020

New Ownership Team

With the retirement of George Piccirilli in early 2020, Claire Erker, Brian Heigel and Jenelle Moore became the new ownership team.

2020 and beyond

Looking ahead

In the world of COVID-19 and thinking what a post-COVID world looks like, our role in helping our customers has never been more vital. With our team of experts dedicated to supporting organizations of all kinds, we're sure the future is bright.

If our clients are energized and our teams are proud, that's our true sign of success.
