owner + principal designer
Lindsey Cheek is the owner, principal designer, and creative director for Gathered. With inspiration from her grandfather, a master carpenter, and a happy but nomadic upbringing (31 moves in 35 years) she became well versed in architecture and construction before pursuing a degree in design. After finally landing in Wilmington, Lindsey began working with both residential and commercial design clients across the country. In 2015, she opened a brick and mortar lifestyle shop that offers her signature mix of home accessories and favorite gifts. Lindsey, her husband Grayson, and their two children Tilley-Gray and Maines (along with their golden retriever Dolly) live in Lindsey’s favorite design project to date, a 1928 Colonial home they spent over a year renovating for their family. Lindsey’s work has been featured in Southern Living, HGTV Magazine, Martha Stewart Magazine, Consumer Reports, The Huffington Post, and Rue Magazine.
Morgan has been Lindsey’s right hand since the inception of Gathered. Born and raised in Wilmington, Morgan knows and loves this coastal community. Before graduating from UNCW in 2014, she met Lindsey Cheek. They immediately hit it off and since then Morgan has run the operations of the business. As the first point of contact, Morgan ensures that the client’s experience is seamless from start to finish. She wears many hats including managing the storefront and sourcing new inventory with Lindsey. When not at Gathered, Morgan enjoys exercise and dance, decorating her new home, and spending time on the water with her husband, Will.
In 2016, Morgan was added to the team as Lindsey’s first design assistant and then stepped into the role of junior designer in 2018, when we began offering our mini design and consultation services. Growing up in Wilmington, Morgan has a sophisticated eye for coastal style that inspires her design philosophies. Her knowledge goes beyond her design degree and is evident in both her client interactions and the outcome of a project. When she’s not in the studio, Morgan spends her time exploring our coastal habitat, enjoying family, and finding inspiration as a new mom.
Amber joined the Gathered team in 2017 and her design background has been vital to the continued growth of the company. Raised in a northern suburb of Atlanta, Georgia, Amber Knight attended the University of Georgia, studied interior design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, California. After a military move brought her to Wilmington, Amber confirmed that she was most herself when immersed in the creative process. She enjoys hiking, camping, and water sports with her husband, James and her dog, Lucy.
