About Us

Doug & Judy Labs

Doug and Judy Labs founded Welling, Ripley & Labs, Fine Furniture & Interior Design in 1984 with the opening of a showroom in Kalamazoo, MI. In 1993 the Labs' built their current more expansive facility showcasing the area's most beautiful fine furnishings, displayed in completely accessorized room settings.

2002 brought the addition of an extensive Youth Gallery which has become a store within a store.  In addition to a wide variety of furniture designs with our children in mind, are "fun and funky" accessories allowing you to give your child's room the whimsical personality and style it deserves.

Welling, Ripley & Labs offers top quality furniture and accessories from the best names in the industry. We feature galleries from Harden, Henredon, Lexington, Stanley and Thomasville with major presentations from Sherrill and Highland House. Our buyers carefully select a variety of styles and designs that will catch the eye, and meet the needs and expectations of diverse consumers. You will find the best quality available at a price that is affordable. Our accessory buyers continue to develop and expand the already extensive offerings with regular trips to High Point, Atlanta, and Chicago. Whether your focus is traditional, European, or contemporary, we have that perfect decorative accent for your home.
