ABOUT EKD

Elizabeth Krueger Design is a leading, Chicago-based, luxury interior design firm with vast experience in both residential and commercial properties. The firm was founded in 2012 by Elizabeth Krueger, who has since been named one of HGTV's "Faces of Design" and LUXE Magazine’s “13 Design Innovators You Need to Know.” Elizabeth and her team continue to push the boundaries of design, blending color and neutrals, textures and patterns, to achieve an aesthetic that is inimitable and reflective of each client they work with. From city high-rises to spacious suburban homes to luxurious lake-side retreats, Elizabeth Krueger Design remains at the forefront of design innovation and execution.

At a foundational level, the EKD team is grounded in the belief that the design process should be inventive, transparent, and guided, and therefore always seek to provide the highest level of expertise, collaboration, and support to their expanding network of clients and partners. The firm’s hope is to curate a styled space, in which the true value isn't defined by the pedigree of the things inside it, but rather by the meaningful environment created as a team.
