Originally from Texas, New York-based Wendt began his career as a garden designer and now creates high-end events for luxury brands such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Cartier, plus cultural institutions like the School of American Ballet with Ron Wendt Design. His clean, sophisticated environments are never over-designed and tend to embrace the aspects of color and texture.
