Kyle grew up in downtown Chicago and from an early age had a passion for architecture and design. He moved to Los Angeles where he combined his love of the arts and started working under multiple prop stylists to learn his craft.
Moving up the ranks quickly he started leading projects and expanded into interior design clients as well. It was here, in his early 20’s, where he came up with the idea for his design book, “The First Apartment Book: Cool Design For Small Spaces”. As his peers were moving into their first apartments and Kyle was designing high end homes he saw a disconnect from design to young people and wanted to create an accessible guide to great design on any budget and for any space.
With the success of the book published by Clarkson Potter came multiple product lines – a bedding line, Studio 3B by Kyle Schuneman, at Bed Bath and Beyond and an upholstery line, Kyle Schuneman for Apt2B, through the online retailer.
Kyle’s design work has been featured in Esquire, Dwell, Cosmopolitan, This Old House, Redbook, Sunset, L'Uomo Vogue, The Chicago Tribune, CA Home + Design, Angeleno Interiors, and Real Simple. With a natural comfort in front of the camera, Kyle has also reached large TV audiences as a designer on HGTV's "Rentervention" and appearing on Fox’s “The Real,” and CBS' "The Talk.” He frequently lends his style advice to other on-air segments for NBC, HGTV and TBS.
His television work also consists of art directing various shows including the Emmy-winning Food Network series, "Giada At Home”. Kyle's company, Kyle Schuneman Designs, is a threefold venture consisting of interior design, art direction and prop styling. His colorful, classic style is seen in advertising campaigns everywhere for clients such as Target, Apple, CB2, and Amazon.
