The Story of Mister Robert.
     Mister Robert Fine Furniture and Design began as a dream of Bob and Sara Jean Calonkey 60 years ago. Since opening its doors on October 1, 1958 with a single store front offering high-end designer-oriented furniture on Norman’s historic Main Street, Mister Robert has been a symbol of style and excellence, as well as a pillar of the community for decades. During its storied career, Mister Robert has remained dedicated to Bob and Sara Jean’s mission: to make Oklahoma beautiful, one room at a time.
     Throughout their 66 year marriage, Bob and Sara Jean worked to lead Mister Robert into the next millennium with unmatched attention to style, quality, and service. Together they made Mister Robert a business synonymous with timeless elegance and class. This landmark family-owned and operated business continues to this day under the leadership of their daughter, Keven Calonkey Carl, who quite literally was raised in the business.  Keven grew up knowing she wanted to be an Interior Designer and graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a degree in Interior design.

“As a child I went to clients’ homes with my mom and learned the design aspect of the business.  I saw how dad ran the business and learned from him the financial aspects of running a business.  I am proud to carry on their legacy at Mister Robert.”   
     Keven is well known and respected in the industry as a top designer and remains dedicated to providing Oklahoma with distinguished furnishings and exceptional customer service.   She is a professional member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), and is nationally certified though the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ).
