Bill can barely remember a time in his life without Chelsea House. The company was founded by his family and Bill has been a part of the company for most of his working career. His extensive knowledge of design has been bolstered by unusual access to the archives of museums, castles, historical properties and societies both in the United States and Europe. While grounded in classic design, art and antiquities, Bill has a unique talent of taking these traditional designs and making them relevant for today’s market.
Chelsea House is now a member of the Wildwood family of brands but Bill remains heavily involved in the design and direction of the company. He also continues his family’s emphasis on hospitality and excellence.
