Interior Design in Topeka

Select Local Merchants

On a fateful day in 1933, at the height of the Great Depression, a hitchhiker arrived at The Howdy Come In––a rest stop owned by Ben and Eva Winter––carrying only his clothes and a suitcase full of cabinet-making tools. The Winters decided to hire him to build a chifforobe for their new baby, Bobby, and were so impressed by his craftsmanship that they decided to go into business with their new friend. Soon the partners were selling new and refurbished furniture out of the Winters’ dairy barn under the name Winter’s Furniture Store, and they eventually moved to a storefront in the city of Emporia, where they could share their high-quality wares with more people and fewer confused cows.

Today, the family business is run by the Winters’ son, Bob, who oversaw its expansion into two showrooms in Topeka and Lawrence and gave it a new moniker––Discovery Furniture. His merchandise buyers select fine furniture from around the world, filling the design floors with trusted name brands such as Broyhill, Aspen, and Flexsteel. As a member of the Furniture First buying group, Winter is able to pass along the savings of buying stock in volume along with a guarantee that he will meet or beat any competitor’s advertised price within 75 miles. Interior designers on staff can help customers determine which pieces, styles, and colors best fit their needs, and most of Discovery’s furniture can be custom ordered in any style, color, or fabric, catering to customers who know what they like and like to match their upholstery to their clothes.

Sun Resorts Tanning Salon gilds limbs with a fleet of UV tanning beds and private VersaSpa and Mystic tanning booths. To deliver even and radiant hues, the salon ensures that its beds? lights are more closely clustered than a bunch of grapes driving a clown car and that the beds? canopies aren?t overly arched. Patented spray-tan formulas imbue limbs with radiance without UV rays, and the salon?s Australian Gold tanning products help patrons become a beautiful shade of copper much like a crystal vase full of pennies.

Designed by golf great Raymond Floyd, The Legacy Golf Course incorporates rolling hills, woodland terrain, and water features into a challenging 6,776-yard layout. Throughout the round, grassy mounds create awkward lies as golfers strive to keep balls away from water hazards, which come into play on most holes, and ankle-high grasses that hug the course's more remote edges. Golfers must show off their best power-draw, fade, or spitball drive to tame the course's fifth hole, which doglegs sharply to the left and has flummoxed enough players to earn the distinction of the course's most difficult hole.

Players can prepare for their round at the club's practice facilities, which include a grass-tee driving range and practice greens for chipping and putting. The Legacy Golf Course is an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary that works to preserve its ecosystem's delicate balance between flying balls and flying squirrels.

  • Designed by Raymond Floyd

  • 18-hole, par-72 course

  • Length of 6,776 yards from the farthest tees

At eight showrooms across the Kansas City area, SleepOne Mattress Superstore's aptly named sleep advisors recommend mattresses that will accommodate budgets and physical conditions such as stiffness and pain. After scouring the showroom's floor, the staff might suggest a Sterns and Foster mattress made with materials such as silk and cashmere. They also offer delivery and removal of the old mattresses.

SleepOne Mattress Superstore also fights nightmares with several guarantees. For example, their staff will refund 110% of the difference in price if customers find the same mattress sold for less. They also exchange mattresses for up to a year (only charging a redelivery fee) and offer a rehabilitation program for reformed boogeymen.

The thousands of unpainted pottery pieces that line Walls Of Clay’s walls are each blank canvases for painters’ creative designs. Pottery in shapes like plates, heart-shaped tiles, and animal figurines wait for the studio's provided brushes and paints to bring them to life. Once decorated, the pottery pieces spend time in the studio’s kiln, where under the watchful eye of Walls Of Clay staffers, their paint jobs become permanent, like a dishwasher-safe tattoo.
