Chai Ming Studios is a Chicago-based furniture design company that  designs and produces sophisticated, made-to-order furniture. The collection of seating, tables, and case goods are perfectly suited for both residential and commercial spaces. Each piece is handcrafted in the USA and influenced by classic design vocabularies that transcend time. Chai Ming Studios’ furniture exudes a refined tradition of luxury - clean lines, elegant detailing, and graceful proportions create pieces that are superbly timeless.




Chai Ming Studios is a design firm that conceptualizes and creates elegant furniture pieces inspired by classical forms. We value fine craftsmanship and contribute to every step of the design process, from concept to installation.

Established by Gary Lee in 2011, Chai Ming Studios has since developed a reputation for refined, timeless award winning work. Our finished work is a product of context, team ideas, and conversations with our clients. We strive to go beyond the modern and contemporary to achieve true timelessness.

We don’t believe in assembly lines. Each piece is carefully designed and hand-crafted in the U.S.A. by a team of artists and engineers.   We believe in relationships. Our network of skilled vendors, suppliers, craftsman and small shop artisans, are invaluable in the process of creating high-quality upholstery and case-goods. Our size allows us to provide intimate customer service, while our large network provides our studio with the resources you would expect from a larger enterprise.
