“Finally, an event furniture rental company who offers pieces with great style and design. This space has been void until Bowery and Bash arrived on the scene. Well done Ladies! Not only is their furniture line stylish, their customer service team is solid. They were on time and extremely helpful setting up. Pleasure to work with.”

KATIE ERNST
founder + creative director

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 graffiti, the rustic 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 interior 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 and  CS Interiors. 

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 sophisticated furniture and decor.

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