Our Story

Painted and re-upholstered bedroom furniture

Excel Interiors has been transforming furniture since 1957 in the Minneapolis area.


Eugene Smasal bought the business in 1957, because he wanted to settle down when his son, Dave Smasal, was born that same year. Eugene settled down in the small town of Hopkins, MN operating the family business.

Dave started working in the industry every day after school learning the trade. In 1984, Dave bought the business from his father and continued to provide high quality service for the next 30 years.
