The Chairish Podcast: How a Creative Collaboration Works


Travel can be inspiring in ways that go way beyond the expected.

Product designer, entrepreneur, and frequent traveller Annie Selke loved her stays at Firmdale Hotels in New York and London so much she became a huge fan of their co-founder and designer, Kit Kemp.

The collaborators reveal what brought them together, how Kit’s experience in hospitality brought a fresh vision to designs for the home, why working long distance was not a problem, and what’s next on their agenda.
