Welcome back to the Student Lounge.

This week on The Student Lounge, Trish talks to Chicago-based designer London Walder who opened her own design firm in August 2016 to focus on residential design using antiques that a client already loves or that they might fall in love with during a project.
Last year, London Walder Interior Design opened a showroom that can stock antiques and even store them at the beginning of a project so they’re guaranteed to end up in the final version of a space.
To see Walder’s work, visit London Walder Interior Design’s website and follow the Instagram @londonwalderinteriordesign.

This week, Trish hosts Emily Hall in the Student Lounge. Hall is VP of marketing at Charrette Venture Group, a venture capital firm that guides small architecture businesses toward success.
