History

A family-owned company, founded by husband and wife Donal and Bridget Gleeson, natives of Ireland, KitchenSource.com began business in 1996 out of their home in Trumbull, Connecticut. Donal Gleeson worked for over forty years in the kitchen industry designing and installing high-end kitchen and cabinet products in Ireland and the United States.

In 1996, the Gleesons established Kitchen Accessories Unlimited (KitchenSource.com.) For the remainder of that decade, the company focused on selling kitchen and cabinet accessories. After surviving the Dot.com bubble, and as business grew steadily, KitchenSource.com expanded its product offerings to include furnishings and accessories for the entire home, including the bathroom, bedroom and patio.
