We Value

01. BEAUTY

We believe that beauty begets beauty—especially in beautiful spaces. That’s why we created The Frances. Because there is nothing more energizing than creative inspiration. Our vision is to be a space that fosters more of it.

02. hospitality

Frances, our daughter and namesake, is full of life and unapologetically welcoming. And that is everything we hope to be as a studio—to friends, family, and strangers alike.

03. Generosity

Chicago inspires us. This city is doing beautiful and good things, and we believe in being a space that brings people together to serve a larger purpose.
