In 1954 Henry’s, Inc. announced the plans to build a new store on the southeast corner of Douglas and Oliver. One of the architects was John Hickman, an intern under Frank Lloyd Wright. The store opened on November 1st of that year.

The building held Henry’s, along with other fine retailers Gragg’s Furs and Lewins. The store operated from 1954 until 1975.


Ferguson-Phillips was established in 2001 by Jeff and Brenda Cody, who envisioned a place where Wichitans could learn about the latest trends in interior design, while gathering resources for their own projects and purchasing fine furnishings and home decor.

The Ferguson-Phillips name was derived form the owners’ mothers’ maiden names.

About Jeff

He worked in the architecture and engineering departments at Pizza Hut and as the Director of Development for Summerfield Suites Hotel Corporation. He has designed for commercial and residential properties, enhancing extant architectural structure with highly customized interior design that reflects the clients’ needs and desires. Believing that design evovles out of a dialogue between the client and designer, Jeff imbues spaces with suble elegance and timeless designs.

About Brenda

Brenda Cody believes that true art arises from collaboration, that a designer’s role is to interpret clients’ desires and produce inspired works of art that are thinly veiled as furnishings. Brenda was born with an innate aesthetic sense. Design runs in her blood. She is passionate about fabrics, textiles and color; and often finds herself immersed in creating unique furnishings that reflect the individuality of her clients.
