Kelly Behun

Interior Designer

Designer Kelly Behun is the founder of Kelly Behun Studio, a New York–based firm specializing in residential interiors and furniture design since 2008. Her previous firm, behun ziff design, was founded in 2000. Behun is an alum of Ian Schrager’s in-house Design Studio. There, the young designer worked alongside renowned talents Philippe Starck and Andrée Putman on marquee projects including the Delano Hotel in Miami and the Mondrian Hotel in Los Angeles. In 2014, Elle Decor added Behun to their prestigious A-List, writing that she “is a master of materials and scale, crafting sleek yet inviting spaces.” Behun’s modern, highly personal approach to design has garnered her clients such as Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, and lush editorial spreads. Most recently, Behun joined 1stdibs as a dealer. This week, she shops the site.
