After six years as a member of Ian Schrager’s design team, working alongside Andree Putman and Philippe Starck on hotels across the US, designer Kelly Behun created her own firm that specializes in the design of interiors, furniture and decorative accessories. Based in New York City, k e l l y b e h u n |STUDIO provides a uniquely hands-on approach producing customized environments perfectly tailored to each client’s needs. Clients are assured a highly personal experience with an emphasis on collaboration and individualized service. Considered an interior designer with the eye of a gallerist, Kelly’s projects utilize everything from bespoke furnishings and unique designer pieces to offbeat accents and inexpensive vintage finds. The aesthetic relies more on visual and emotional appeal than a particular provenance. Kelly has deep connections to the New York art world and is always seeking new and innovative ways for clients to integrate art into their homes. The k e l l y b e h u n |STUDIO line of furnishings and home accessories can be found at Barneys New York and on 1stdibs.
