Luxury abounds when you walk into the showroom of Kohler® Signature Store by First Supply. They are the only Kohler Signature in the Kansas City metro area/ Midwest with this prestigious designation. First Supply is a family-owned company that has been in business for over 125 years, supplying top plumbing, tile, and cabinetry brands.

Lynn Nelson, Showroom Manager for this location, is the ideal person to steer customers, builders, and interior designers in the right direction when it comes to the latest in kitchen and bath faucets, fixtures, lighting, tile, and features. The beautiful in-store showroom faucet and fixture displays allow people to walk in with a vision and leave with a plan to bring their designs to life. She offers design consultations, install services with an emphasis on product knowledge, and more. A client can walk in with their floor plan and design their whole house completely without having to leave the store, seamlessly. This is truly a one-stop showroom.

This store has been open for seven years, and Nelson has been at the helm for two. She has over 25 years of experience in the plumbing and showroom industry and brings along another level of expertise. She is on the board of the American Society of Interior Designers and involved in the National Kitchen and Bath Association. 

“Prior to this, I had my own design business where I worked with builders on new construction model homes and private homes. Then after that, I got into the plumbing industry which I found new and exciting, and have been doing it ever since,” she noted. “I’ve always had an interest in design and have a great client following, most of whom have been with me for many years.”

She sells the complete family of Kohler lines, including Kohler Kallista, Robern, and Ann Sacks tile, which are luxury lines featuring high-end designers and are very stylized for the discerning customer who wants lovely high style items. 

“Ann Sacks is exclusive here in Kansas City. It is very high-end, all handmade and customized. You can pick your style, size, patterns, and colors to create beautiful walls and floors. It is very exclusive and luxurious. They gather from artisans all over the world,” she explained. “Our Robern line is another of our sought-after lines, offering lighted mirror cabinets, furniture, and beautiful vanities, all high-end. Cabinetry paint colors, printed sinks, and spring green are becoming popular now.”

They are a full-service showroom working with many designers in Kansas City. Stylized areas include kitchen sinks, toilets, bathtubs, steam, lighting, tile services, and kitchen design with cabinets and countertops. 

“We have been selected to design two of the bathrooms in the 54th Symphony Designers’ Showhouse which will be open for tour April 27 – May 19. We are also doing a home on the Artisan Home Tour,” she noted.

Kohler Signature Store specializes in new, bold, and innovative products to enhance the beauty of your home and make it a space that is truly yours.


Expanded digital showers are popular, offering programmable settings and timers, with all different features from control of water pressure and temperature, interior lighting, and interior sound. We are also expanding the steam line for Kohler. Tile with textures you can actually feel and see is becoming popular, as is ribbed and fluted cabinetry adding more visual interest and depth. Green is the new color for spring, and Kohler has introduced green-coated faucets and fixtures. Kallista recently came out with new designs, featuring customizable handles, and neutral wood tones are all the rage this year.
