Merrill & Julie Huntsman

Owners, Design Gallery

Merrill became the operations manager at Design Gallery in 1996. Born in Idaho Falls, he grew up working with his dad, who was a flooring contractor when carpet was seamed with a needle and thread. After graduating from Skyline High School and serving an LDS mission to Tennessee, Merrill started both a family and a retail career in Idaho Falls. As his family has grown, so has his circle of friends. He now enjoys his relationships with customers, co-workers and suppliers, and counts them all as friends. He enjoys time with his wife in the surrounding mountains, and can be found most weekends during the summer exploring the trails on his horse, Whiskey. He also has a passion for beautiful wood furniture, and occasionally finds time to create individual pieces for family and friends.

From accounts receivable to payroll to inventory, Kelly ensures that we are provided with accurate information for day to day operations.

Ryan began working at Design Gallery in 2011. A strong work ethic and attention to detail made him a natural choice as warehouse manager when the position opened in 2013. After managing the warehouse for three years, his knowledge and excitement about the products and services Design Gallery has to offer led him to his current position as a Design Consultant. Ryan enjoys working personally with each customer, and the challenge involved in finding just the right look for every individual. His interest in interior design follows him to his own home, where he always has a project in the works. He has an exceptional interest in the Arts & Crafts design and architecture.

In his spare time, Ryan enjoys wood-working, and exploring Idaho while fly-fishing, hunting, and riding motorcycles.
