About

Gary Lee is an award-winning Chicago-based interior designer and entrepreneur. Since 1993, he has founded four design-related enterprises including his namesake interior design firm, Gary Lee Partners.

As a consummate artist, Gary has lived his life in multiple colorful mediums. Whether he creates interior architectural solutions for world-renowned firms or furnishes urban pied-à-terres with his own custom furniture, his passion for design knows no limits.

On the canvas, Gary's artistic pursuits date back to his studies at the University of Michigan. In recent years, the challenges of running four firms inspired him to return to painting, a medium through which he can communicate a more intimate form of self expression.
