TIP #5:  

Eyesight changes with age, so it's necessary to increase or modify lighting for improved task performance and to avoid shadows. This is especially important around stairs. for someone with  Alzheimer's, be sure to provide adequate window treatment to prevent agitation and illusions that come with night time reflections.

Investing in Quality Furnishings Pays Off


By Myra Katz, December 2011


We've just completed updating Suburban OB-GYN's Waiting Room at Missouri Baptist Medical of the many.  Working at Famous Barr Commercial Interiors right out of college, I was introduced to one of my first clients, Jacob Klein, MD, who was launching his private practice.  He was excited, had his own sense of style, as well as progressive ideas of what would create the optimum OB-GYN environment for his patients. They worked then....and I'm proud to say they still do.  A leader in his profession and women's healthcare, he changed the stereotypical cold, impersonal and insensitive doctor's visit by adding wardrobe units in exam rooms, cloth gowns and heat lamps over the mention a few.  His practice and reputation continued to build while other physicians followed his lead. 

 Suburban OBGYN - 2011After

For his first Waiting Room,  Dr. Klein purchased the classic stainless steel  England Chair,  manufactured impeccably by Stow Davis, and a piece that holds a place in the Museum of Modern Art.  I've learned a lot from Jack over the years, handling his design needs from Private Office to Exam Room to Waiting Room, moves and renovations with each new lease he signed.  These chairs have been reupholstered at least 5 times, taking on a new life with each fabric selection.  It just demonstrates the benefits of investing in quality, classic furnishings.

Due to the slow process of cleaning up and rebuilding, Myra L. Katz & Associates, Inc. is extending its offer to businesses damaged or destroyed by the St. Louis and Joplin tornadoes and are challenging other businesses to follow suit.
