About Our Company

In 1976, Jerry Welch began a small upholstery shop in the basement of his home in Hannibal, Missouri. By the mid-1980s, Welch's Custom Upholstery outgrew it's original location and moved operations to an industrial site. Continued growth led to a second relocation and a change in name that more closely mirrored expanded product offerings. In 1989, American Decor began operations in its 14,000 square foot facility in downtown Hannibal, offering custom blinds, shades and draperies as well as pipe and welded frame awnings for residential and commercial applications. American Decor has continued to grow, transitioning from a retailer of prefabricated products to a state of the art manufacturer of beautiful and affordable custom internal and external window treatments.
