Calgary Interiors is a family owned & operated business that has been providing Calgary and Western Canada with outstanding upholstery and custom soft furniture, since 1962. Originally founded by Steve Wenzel and a partner, Steve became a sole proprietor in 1972. Steve operated and built up the company over the early years, with his hard work ethic and great customer relations.After working in the business on weekends and summer holidays when they were kids, Kevin and Jeff Wenzel joined the company after their respective University degrees, and fully took over the operations in 1998.Sadly, Steve Wenzel passed on in August of 2019. His character and passion is greatly missed by everyone that knew him. We know that he is always looking down on us, with a big smile.
As a company, our goal today is the same as it was 50 + years ago: To provide top quality craftsmanship with outstanding customer service. It means everything to us.
We are also passionate advocates for the environment and are constantly learning how our business can leave a lighter footprint on the earth for the generations to come.

MEET THE TEAM
With a background degree in Industrial and Furniture Design, the oldest of Steve Wenzel’s sons brought his knowledge and skill to the Calgary Interiors team, officially in 1994. Kevin’s energy, spirit, and attention to detail immediately had an impact on the company. Today, his passion for designing & building great furniture is stronger than ever, especially as he pushes the company’s focus on sustainable, ethical alternatives.
“I really enjoy designing new pieces for my clients and making sure that it’s as aesthetically pleasing as it is comfortable and Innovative”. Ever since he was a child, Kevin has been a creative individual, and this has intensified as the years have gone on. Simply put, designing custom furniture is in his DNA
He believes that the best part of his position is seeing the team really come together on a job to create spectacular furniture for a client. Everyone striving to be better every day is what is really important.
The sports of volleyball, soccer, and skiing of his younger years, have now been mostly replaced by hiking, biking and a bit of golf. If you ask him, he will likely accept an invitation for a round of golf 😉
Jeff has a lot of the same great characteristics that his father Steve had. He is loyal, kind, genuine, always fun-loving, and these attributes are evident in his business life as well as his family life.
Jeff’s degree in Business allows him to oversee the financial structure of Calgary Interiors, but he also enjoys the “hands on” aspect as well. This keeps his finger on the pulse of the company and ensures that our clients receive the highest quality furniture possible.
Typically, Jeff deals one on one with most of our Industry and Interior Designer clients, making sure they are authentically cared for in each project. If you are in the industry and are in need of furniture guidance, please drop him a note.
A devoted family man, any time Jeff isn’t working he is kept on the go with his lovely wife and three very active kids. They all enjoy water & snow skiing, Volleyball, nature hikes, and pretty much any competitive family game.
Carla Cornejo began her Interior Design career in 2013 after graduating from Bow Valley College in Calgary. She has worked on several Residential and Commercial projects throughout the years and has developed an in-depth ability to bring her clients vision to life. Carla is extremely passionate about all things related to Design and Architecture, from planning and designing spaces, architectural drawings, upholstery and reupholstery, furniture, and colour selections. Carla’s clients love working with her because of her energy, vision, and attention to detail.
Carla is a born and raised Calgarian with Chilean decent as both parents are from Chile. “My passion for design and furniture has come from assisting my father dismantle and upholster furniture at his shop, as I was growing up.” She has always loved watching him work and finding compelling materials to work with. “I have also re-built my very own sofa that I love so much”.
Carla lived in London, England for two years and was able to travel throughout Europe with her main goal being to visit Design Studios and Furniture Stores in every city that she went to. “I find it so inspiring to see creations from various different countries around the world”. She is currently studying online to expand and further her education and career in Architectural Design and aims to receive her Architectural Design and Technology Diploma in September of 2022.
Work and school currently take up most of her time, but when she finds free time, Carla is usually sewing, designing, or building furniture. “I think it is extremely important to create environments that each person will love”.
