Ken Rash founded his namesake casual furnishings business in Memphis in 1970. His daughter, Lawrie, followed in his footsteps and started working in the store at the eager age of 14. She graduated from the University of Memphis in 1984 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design, and then garnered experience at a design firm in west Florida, designing interiors of yachts and homes and also doing commercial work.
In 1991, Lawrie’s father provided her with the exciting opportunity to open a store in Little Rock. And since it opened in 1992, the Little Rock location has built a strong reputation for honesty and integrity, while providing a vast selection of unique, quality furnishings.
Lawrie has showcased both her store and her talent by participating in every Symphony Designer House and Build for the Cure Idea House since the store opened. She and her staff have also built a dedicated family of clients and friends who return year after year, whether it’s simply to update and refresh or to start over in a new home.
Since families are spending more time at home these days and paying attention to spending their money wisely, the Ken Rash team prides itself on providing customers with products that are durable and long lasting. And especially in Arkansas, where outdoor living and entertaining are prevalent throughout the year, Ken Rash has become the go-to source for anyone who wants to outfit both their indoor and outdoor spaces in style. Casual furnishings for casual living.
