Founder of Studio 6F, Chicago-based interior designer Gil Melott recently launched his new furniture line Gil Melott BESPOKE, made with earth- and jewel-toned fabrics and natural materials. Melott’s vision stems from his youthful experience in Central Texas, and role models—such as writer William Faulkner, designer Edward Wormley and even his uncle Foy—also inspired his work.

GIL MELOTT: BESPOKE The Chicago-based designer and proprietor of vintage furniture showroom Studio 6F has launched his first product line, comprising a sofa, a chair and a light fixture.
