Established in 2014 by co-founders Melissa Benham, Jennie Bishop, and Kristen Ekeland, Studio Gild draws inspiration from the principals’ shared love of clean architecture and subtle beauty. Their combined experience in commercial, retail, and residential design allows the collective to deliver refined interiors with enduring style.
Having fine-tuned a collaborative eye that Architectural Digest deemed versatile and sophisticated, the trio’s design approach fosters unique artisan and client relationships while embracing an emphasis on thoughtful detailing. It is the meticulous gilding of each project that serves as a reflection of the firm’s trademark aesthetic and namesake. The resulting environments are curated, provocative, and timeless.
Studio Gild has been featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, Domino, Dwell, Harper’s Bazaar, and The New York Times. With offices located in Chicago and Los Angeles, the design firm currently accepts projects from coast to coast.
