MEET THE TEAM

Bowery (Small Home) & Bash (Social event).

Our on trend furniture has made an appearance in everything from the most exciting experiential events to extravagant corporate celebrations, film sets and luxury weddings. And now, we’re in a home near you with our exciting new residential and real estate staging collection.

We are wildly unapologetic creative types, free spirits who are all about stretching the limits of our imagination. Beyond the rentals, we are dreamers and dog-lovers who care deeply about creating an environmentally friendly company that our clients are inspired by and want to tell their friends about.

Team

KATIE ERNST
creative director + founder

Like many creative types, Katie was a quirky child with a very active imagination. She is a native of New Orleans, which explains everything you need to know about her love of gilt and graffitti, the rough-around-the-edges and the refined.

A life-long storyteller, Katie was an Emmy-award winning  journalist for NBC News before entrepreneurship pulled her away.  In 2009, she launched Revision Home,  an  edgy design company that used experiential events to sell updated vintage classics.  Revision Home quickly became a go-to destination for Chicago’s interior design junkies and was named to the “Best Of” lists by Chicago magazine, CS Interiors and the Chicago Reader.

Katie’s love of storytelling, design and events collided in 2014, when she opened Bowery & Bash. What began as a vintage rental company soon evolved to feature a carefully curated collection of design-forward furniture and decor. Our clients include top event planners, creative agencies and corporate brands.

She lives in the Chicago area with her three children and two rescue pups.
