STUDIO GILD is the compelling story of three talented designers, Melissa Benham, Jennie Bishop and Kristen Ekeland, joining forces to create a fresh and approachable interior design firm. Founded in January 2014, the multi-faceted, Chicago-based collective draws from its principals’ experience in residential, hospitality, retail, commercial and graphic design. With a shared love for clean architecture, modern lines and simple beauty, Melissa, Jennie and Kristen founded Studio Gild with the intent to create a boutique firm that delivers elevated design, while fostering uniquely fun collaborations and strong client relationships. Drawing inspiration from fashion, art and architecture, Studio Gild infuses each project with a touch of sophisticated whimsy and style.
