The Galley Revisited

Last month we wrote about The Galley, a kitchen concept that is revolutionizing the kitchen industry. We mistakenly missed listing the largest local Authorized Dealer of The Galley, Kitchen Ideas. We apologize to them and The Galley. KI is located at 5313 S. Mingo Road and is owned by Robert Shollmier who has been designing kitchens in the Tulsa area since 1977. A few years after starting his business, “It wasn’t long before many of Tulsa’s ‘who’s who’ had commissioned Roger to design their kitchens and national magazines were featuring his work.” Today, Roger continues to “think outside the box” and his philosophy of combining function with good taste is a winning combination that has created happy clients for 40 years and counting.
