After his contentious departure from Living Spaces, you know that place he "f---ing hates," Jeff Lewis was feeling the pressure to perform for Chicago-based business Walter E. Smithe. Not only did Jeff desire vindication from his former partnership, but he was also bringing a West Coast aesthetic to the Midwest. As Gage Edward put it, "We're a little worried because there's obviously a certain kind of consumer in L.A., and is that consumer the same in Chicago? I don't know...We're bringing that California vibe to this market, we just have to execute it in a way that resonates with Chicago."
Well, those let those doubts melt away, Gage! As evidenced below, Jeff's designs, work style, and personality made for perfect home decor harmony with his new partners. "Uncle Brother Jeff" is now officially part of the Smithe family - and now you can be, too!
