Business won't show up when serched for by business type

I posted a website and Google+ listing for K Evans Interiors last month.  The website will now show up when searching for the business name but when searching for "Interior Designers, Springfield MO" it will not show up.  Is there something else I need to do to get the business to show up for this search?

 

K Evans Interiors

1908 E. Sunshine Street

Springfield, MO 65804

Showing up for a business name search should be almost instant after you have verified your page. However, showing up for keyword searches like Interior Designer can take time.

One item to address is the website. The website is a very important signal to Google to help her/him/it undertand what your business is all about. Currently, the website is not optimized well at all. I would focus on that and check out these articles:
