Business Profile: KT Lyons Design in Maple Grove Gives Fresh Look to Furniture

Oct 10, 2017 07:24PM ● By Wendy Erlien

Furniture is getting a new life – and a fresh look – from KT Lyons Design in Maple Grove.

Five years ago, Katie Lyons of Maple Grove decided she needed a change from her job at a school district.

Furniture became her new future.

Along with her husband, Don, the duo formed KT Lyons Design with the mission of renewing, refinishing, and repurposing furniture.

“We started doing some small items, but furniture was where it was at,” Katie said.

Throughout the years, they have learned what customers are looking for and what sells. From inspecting and buying solid wood furniture, finishing minor repairs, and creating a one-of-a-kind design experience – Katie and Don each specialize in specific duties throughout the project.

“We’re a great team,” Katie said.

For Don, the highlight of each project is repurposing a piece of furniture and “making it beautiful.”

“I’ve always been an artist, I love transforming pieces,” Katie said.

Through forums, such as Artisan Markets of Minnesota on Facebook, and word-of-mouth, KT Lyons has had buyers and inquiries from all over the state as well as Wisconsin and South Dakota.

“We have quality furniture and create a quality finish,” Don said.
