Designer of the Week :: Paul Schulman
Paul Schulman Design was launched in 2001, with a focus on the intricate balance between construction and design. Since, Paul has been offering the full range of redesign services - from commercial, to residential.
Expanding on that, Schulman’s flair for furniture extends further than remodeling and redesigning entire homes, but also into the design and creation of custom furniture pieces. Schulman’s specialty is truly his ability to combine interior design and construction. See his website to view astonishing “Before” and “After” photos of past projects.
Originally a Boston native, Schulman has called Chicago home for more than a decade. Prior to opening up shop in Chicago, Schulman ran his own design store and showroom in Milwaukee, Wis. Schulman’s passion for design stems from his life-long interest and education in the fine arts. With a Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Metalsmithing, Schulman approaches all projects with an eye toward history, architecture, and fine design. Schulman’s expansive knowledge of raw materials allows him to navigate projects so that when completed, they are relevant to the client’s vision and are impeccably beautiful.
Named Chicago Magazine’s Best Custom Furniture Maker in its “Best Of Chicago” issue and selected one of ten men to watch in CS Men’s Book magazine’s “The New Boys Club” issue, Schulman continually garners attention thanks to his talent and hands-on approach to business, and is sure to remain a bellwether of practical, modern design.
