ST. LOUIS, MO -- Color Art, a commercial interior solutions provider, has promoted long-time employee Jennifer Graham from Vice President of Workplace Strategies to Executive Vice President of Workplace Strategies and Design.

Color Art, the largest commercial interiors solutions provider in the Midwest, also added Laura Kirk as its new Director of Architectural Solutions. Color Art is and has been family and employee-owned for more than 70 years.

“Color Art is always evolving and growing its divisions, so we’re pleased to be able to place talented employees in positions of success here,” said Christine Hoffmann, President of Color Art Furniture. “The promotion of Jennifer and adding Laura to our Color Art family ensures that we can serve our clients by providing knowledge and insights to create the most effective work environments.”

The Workplace Strategies and Design team guides clients through discussions or workshops to uncover their business objectives and creates spaces that align with those goals.

Graham moved from managing a small team of three to overseeing all design operations. She received her degree in interior design at Southern Illinois University – Carbondale and finetuned her AutoCAD skills at a metal manufacturer upon graduation.

She became one of the first on-site Facilities Planners for Edward Jones and then held various roles and leadership opportunities at Knoll Textiles and Herman Miller.

“I am so excited to be able to lead a team that really helps our clients meet their aspirations and goals,” said Graham, who joined the Workplace Strategies Team at Color Art 14 years ago.

By integrating architectural products, technology products, and furniture solutions, Color Art creates workplaces that enhance performance, inspire engagement and promote wellbeing. The Architectural Solutions team draws on research and experience, in partnership with clients, to elevate their interior environments.

Kirk is a life-long St. Louisan with both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business from Fontbonne University. Working in business development for the past 10 years, Kirk built business for both Total Source and HumanScale in the St. Louis market by calling on A&D firms and commercial furniture dealerships.

“I thought it was the perfect timing. I love what Color Art has been doing in the market, so it was just an easy and natural next step,” she said.
