Our Very Own “Ones to Watch”: STUDIO GILD

Congratulations to RNDD member STUDIO GILD for being named “Ones to Watch” in Architectural Digest’s April 2016 issue. Bucktown-based interior design firm, STUDIO GILD was co-founded by Melissa Benham, Jennie Bishop and Kristen Ekeland in 2014.  Since then, the firm has grown substantially with design commissions from Chicago and New York to Austin, San Francisco and beyond.

In March STUDIO GILD opened Gild Assembly, a gallery featuring a well-curated collection of items for the home.  From the latest tomes on style, to unique works of art and furniture that marries the finest craftsmanship with form and function, the gallery’s ever-changing assemblage encompasses unique finds from near and far. Below are just a few of the accessories available at Gild Assembly.
