Get Inside the Hound Chicago Studio
It’s safe to call the space one of the line’s inspirations.
It’s always exciting to discover that a line is, er, aligned with the space where it’s made, and Jennifer Beeman produces Hound in an apartment-slash-studio in Chicago’s West Loop that’s just as sunny and comfortable as her clothes themselves. Before you dive into Jennifer’s tour, prepare yourself for a little life envy.

“I have a huge tea addiction. I pretty much have a pot going constantly. Right now I’m addicted to Davids Tea—that’s what the green tin is in the background.”

“My cat, Roamy, and pug, Sister, are on me like glue all day long! Roamy sits on my desk because it’s right in front of the window—hunting pigeons and meow-ing. When I’m sewing, my pug will go under my machine table and try to lay on my presser foot. So she’s not super helpful, but I love her.”
“My mom’s garden is going crazy now, and she’s always sending me home with flowers, like these peonies. It’s hard to find places to put them because the cat knocks them over.”
