Studio K Creative is a multidisciplinary creative house in Chicago's West Town, formed by nationally recognized designer Karen Herold.

Long-standing partnerships with world leading restaurant groups, top chefs and high-end developers enables the team to develop unique spaces that are a true reflection of each client.
Studio K Creative believes in authentic design; they do not follow trends. The secret of successful design is not in the finishes, furniture or equipment selected, but in the people curating a memorable experience for your guests. Their mission is simple. They will translate your story into an environment that draws people back time and time again.

She founded Studio K to develop a team of imaginative and forward-thinking brand strategists, visionaries, aesthetic masters and technical designers, to offer end-to-end design for all projects.

Intentionally imperfect, this textile celebrates the artisanal process of hand-crafted art. The organic movement found in the patterns are exactly what gives them interest. Coupled with a monochromatic palette and neon accent this textile generates a pop of energy - creating a playful confidence that is infectious.
