Richelle Plett

Richelle is an award-winning Interior Designer practicing in the Kansas City area for over 20 years. She has been featured in the Kansas City Star, published in Better Homes and Gardens publications, appeared on local television programming including Better Kansas City and Kansas City Live, participated in the Kansas City Symphony Design Showhouse and DIFFA Dining with Design, and enjoys speaking at women’s entrepreneurial events. Her love of vintage furniture and upholstery led Richelle to own a brick and mortar design studio with custom upholstery and window treatment workroom called Sitzen Upholstery and Design. Known for her vast selection of “roadkill” quality constructed upholstered frames that just needed a little love, the business mantra was, “Pick a frame, pick a fabric and we do the rest!” This allowed her to keenly understand how fabrics and upholstery wear in real life and to truly comprehend the value of upholstery construction. Today she loves working with design clients to help them “furnish forward” and enjoys teaching professional designers about upholstery construction.
