Nikki Chu
Celebrity Designer

Talented and inventive, Nikki Chu stands as a hard-working, powerful businesswoman in the world of product design and interiors. Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Ms. Chu has had a passion to design since childhood. After realizing her love for the arts, Nikki attended a specialized design school called International Academy of Design. Having accomplished so much at a young age, and driven to succeed, it was only natural that Ms. Chu relocated to a much more competitive marketplace: Los Angeles. There, her interior design and television journey began and was elevated right to the top, working with celebrities like Tyra Banks, Nick Cannon, Lisa Leslie and Gabrielle Union. Since then, the celebrity designer has built and developed her own brand, a home line consisting of fashion bedding, basic bedding, pillows, rugs, throws, paint, wall art and decorative accents. She has also had her interiors photographed by InStyle and People, and was called upon to design Sasha and Malia Obama’s “model” White House bedroom for an on-air special with Access Hollywood. Nikki has also appeared on networks like VH1, HGTV, Fine Living, Oxygen, Lifetime and E! Entertainment. She now has her own show Unboxed with Nikki Chu on AspireTV.
