Hunter Kaiser has been active in the Chicago design community for 15 years. In 2011, Hunter launched his own creative practice in pursuit of a vision focusing around lifestyle. His breadth of work includes interior design, ornamental gardens, event design and production, creative writing, product development, marketing and the unknown project that sparks the question “why not?” Hunter sees design as a platform for telling a story, living well and discovering style. He works with his clients to help them create spaces and moments that personify them as individuals, families and businesses.

In addition to his professional practice, Hunter has served with the Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS and currently sits as President of Designs 4 Dignity wherein he is working with the group to lead a financial campaign for the organization’s program expansion. He also maintains connection to his alma mater, Indiana University, with a seat on the College Alumni Board. He is an annual contributor to the Chicago Flower and Garden Show and the North Dearborn Garden Walk.

The dining room was envisioned as a place for communion and worldly escape. It is a collected mix of favorite objects, stories and moments in time. The layered texture of moody dark walls and casework act as a foil to the luminosity of the gilded accents. It is a gentlemanly retreat for high dining in quietude or in the soft presence of an intimate guest. The space invites reflection on the day and solace over a night cap as preparations are made for the day to come. Settle in. Make a drink. Tell us your tale. Celebrate life.
