About Us


Our business is to understand and anticipate yours

Founded in 1987, Modern Business Interiors re-launched in 2000 under new ownership with a fresh vision of creating an alternative office furniture dealership.

We saw serious gaps between what clients really needed and what most dealerships could deliver. The market needed a dealership that could provide the highest level of professional service and an extensive product portfolio to encompass the desired image of almost any type of enterprise, to suit budgets large and small.

Over the past decade and a half, MBI has hired top-notch industry professionals in both sales and project management. As a result we have experienced tremendous growth. In 2012 we expanded from our base in St. Louis to open offices in Kansas City and northern Arkansas. Today we serve clients based throughout Missouri, Kansas, central and southern Illinois, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and beyond.

To accommodate this growth we streamlined our operational processes, added in-house delivery, installation, warehousing, and upgraded our technology to enhance internal and external communications and provide online project tracking for our clients.

We also greatly expanded our partner network, adding many exceptional vendors in order to meet most any client need and become the complete resource we envisioned 15 years ago.


At MBI we stand apart from our competition, not because of the services we provide and the products we sell, but because of the way we provide those sales and services. Acting as a consultant, we make our clients’ needs and visions our own.

We immerse ourselves in a project’s time requirements, cost parameters and myriad challenges. We work diligently to understand each client’s unique qualities and needs; and channel our resources to find and recommend the very best solutions.

We walk each client step by step through each phase of the project, building a workplace environment to maximize employee satisfaction and productivity.

Because we have our own crews, our own trucks and our own warehouse, we are able to deliver value-driven, prompt and personal service to support our customized solutions.

The core of our approach is summed up in these steps:

  • We listen carefully.
  • We provide outstanding and continuous communication.
  • We are consistently responsive on action items and deliverables.
  • We provide clear, consistent and accurate documentation.
  • We commit our creativity and knowledge to every aspect of our involvement in every project.
  • We offer product solutions that are value-driven, high quality and aesthetically pleasing.
  • We provide a dedicated support team with deep experience in consulting, space planning, project management, customer service, and installation.
