Katie Stout is a furniture designer living in Brooklyn, NY. From lamps to art furniture, the designer creates statement pieces you won’t find that often.
She graduated from RISD in 2012. Her work has been exhibited in Milan, Art Basel, Johnson Trading Gallery, various galleries in New York City and has been on the cover of New York Magazine Design Issue. Most recently she was featured on Ellen’s Design Challenge filmed in Los Angeles.
As seen on Ellen’s Design Challenge, Designer Katie Stout’s whimsical design is revealed. For that week’s challenge, each designer had to choose a chair from a wall of chairs (all courtesy of Wayfair) and design a dining table that goes with the chair in both style and function. Katie Stout created a whimsical plaster cow table to match acrylic ghost chairs. The table design design must impress the judges for contestants to avoid elimination and remain in the competition with a chance at the grand prize of $100,000.

Stout’s works continue to be known for their offbeat sense of humor and whimsical sensibilities. She once summarized her practice as an attempt to “make things for this dream dwelling I have in my head, a super-saccharine, cartoony life-size dollhouse where I would ideally live.” Rather than favoring a particular medium, Stout works first with an idea—such as objects that look as though they’re on fire—and then sources materials or fabricators. Her recent projects include furniture for Bjarne Melgaard’s 2014 Whitney Biennial installation, and a collaborative series of hand-pinched clay lamps created with Sean Gerstley.
