Chad Esslinger of Downers Grove-based CHAD ESSLINGER DESIGN is the featured interior designer on an upcoming episode of HGTV's House Hunters Renovation.

The episode was recently filmed in the western suburbs of Chicago and will air on Saturday, July 9, 2016 at 9pm CDT on HGTV. Chad Esslinger, founder and lead designer at CHAD ESSLINGER DESIGN, joined other local companies to dream up and deliver on one couple's vision of restoring a 100-year old home in the western suburbs. There were certainly challenges that surfaced during the project, but after keeping the details under wraps for several weeks, Chad is excited to finally share the end result. While he can't reveal the final home selected for renovation, he did have this to say of the experience on this project:

"Maybe it's my small town roots but I love to infuse comfort and personalization into my clients' homes - and this house was no exception. I worked with the homeowners to incorporate their style while bringing a unique touch that left the space feeling rustic, yet refined. It was very rewarding to see that they truly felt at home in their new space."

About Chad Esslinger: Born in Jacksonville, IL, attended high school in Mahomet, IL and graduated with a design degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign. Chad now lives in his much-loved, newly adopted hometown of Downers Grove, IL with his wife Patty and their three young children. Interior design is more than just a business to Chad, it's a passion.
