Kathey Pear - Owner
Kathey Pear opened Pear Commercial Interiors in Boulder in 1984 and became a dealer for the Haworth office furniture line. Expanding into Denver in 1989, Pear Commercial had grown annual sales to nearly $30 million with hundreds of clients throughout Colorado and nationwide. Pear was selected for the Haworth’s President’s Circle Award every year from 1993 to 1998 when Kathey left the company.
Kathey served as a manufacturer’s rep and marketing consultant in the furniture industry for several years and worked in the software services and mortgage industries. In 2004 she opened her second commercial furniture dealership, Citron WorkSpaces.
After selling Citron in 2014, Kathey created Pear Project Services, to provide planning, design and product specification, evaluation and liquidation services for corporate, hospitality, healthcare, and senior care facilities. Kathey and her team provide a wide variety of services including strategic workplace consultation—specializing in shared or co-working facilities—move management, project management, furniture appraisal, liquidation, and furniture disposition (resale/donation/ sustainable recycling of excess furniture).
