SKIN has been headquartered in Chicago for almost 20 years and since earned a reputation as one of Chicago’s top firms. We love Chicago. It has inspired our cosmopolitan designs in cities across the world. If we can bring a piece of Chicago to London, Paris, Moscow, and Monte Carlo, then we can certainly create interior designs within our hometown that are utterly Chicagoan.
We help residents showcase their personal take on the city; carve out compelling spaces for commercial clients; and impart our passion for the Chicago vibe to hospitality clients, who in turn, pass the excitement onto guests.
It would be hard to find a home in Chicago that does not provide a breathtaking architectural backdrop for interior decorating. Take the Chicago Greystones: a classic canvas that, when expertly decorated, highlights ornate features yet maintains contemporary energy. Collaborating with the owners of a Lakewood historic mansion, we created an interior which was later featured in Design Chicago magazine. As SKIN founder, Lauren Lozano Ziol, remarked on the project
“It made it feel like a modern family home with the sophistication of a bygone era.”
On the opposite end of the spectrum are high-rise homes in lively downtown Chicago. Our team has a trained eye for capturing what is outside your window and emulating it within the home. Historic mansions, greystones, high-rise condos, bungalows, and converted two-flats. We cannot wait to collaborate on your unique piece of Chicago.
When clients step off the magnificent mile and into one of Michigan Avenue’s gilded buildings, the magnificence does not stop. Commercial interior designs are poised and chic but can still be a continuation of the Chicago landscape. Spirited, intriguing, and enthralling. We curate the finest art, fabrics, and furnishings to produce an office space or shopping environment that delivers an experience like no other.
Our hotel interiors turn somewhere to stay into part of the adventure. Restaurant decor transforms a dining room into an encounter with Chicago’s finest foods. The world-class culinary, entertainment, and arts experiences of this city carry into every Chicago hospitality project we take on. The carefree spirit of the lakeshore, stoicism of the museum campus, and romantic reflection of the sun off of a skyscraper provide an only-in-Chicago inspiration which plays into the creation of a uniquely memorable environment for your guests.
Let’s start planning your exclusive cosmopolitan retreat.
