Holly Hunt
A native of Texas, Holly Hunt
describes her design centric business
of showrooms and product for interior
designers, as a business of 10,000
details. If we believe Malcolm Gladwell,
author of Outliers, it also takes 10,000
hours to be really good at anything.
So, Holly has been very busy for 27
years in the business of interior design
and vows to stay at it until she gets
it right! Holly leads HOLLY HUNT,
the company, as President and CEO
and is intimately involved in design
and creative work.
In 1983, Holly began in the interior
design business by buying a small
showroom in Chicago's Merchandise
Mart, which she filled with the best
of class luxury designer collections.
She subsequently expanded her reach
into all major U.S. markets. The HOLLY
HUNT brand has become the premier
design and distribution entity for high
end interior furnishings in the country.
She has often been credited with
raising the bar in interior design
showrooms. Home & Garden magazine
recognized HOLLY HUNT as the Top
Showroom in their Best of the Best
awards three years in a row. The award
was voted on by interior designers
across the U.S.
As an arbiter of refined taste,
her eye for what is now and what's
next has led to her success. Today,
the company designs, produces,
and presents collections of furniture,
lighting, textiles, leather, and continues
to represent the best of designer
Holly resides in Chicago where she
serves on the board of the School
of the Art Institute and the National
