In 1946, Robert G. Reim Sr. opened a print shop, called Color Art, in the garage of his Kirkwood home. From those humble beginnings, the company has grown into one of the largest privately held companies in St. Louis and one of the Top 15 Steelcase Dealers in the Nation.

No competitor can match Color Art’s history and experience. For more than 70 years, we have been serving the St. Louis metropolitan area with a reputation synonymous with excellence, service, and integrity. As one of the nation’s leading authorized Steelcase dealers, Color Art prides itself on the knowledge it brings to every relationship and offers customers insight, advice, and partnership to find solutions that help their organizations grow and their people succeed.
