Meet the Team

Lindsey Cheek

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 interior 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 Keistler

operations manager

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.

Having recently graduated from West Virginia University with a design degree, she boasts impeccable technical skills and has quickly become a huge asset to the overall design process. Angelena implements renderings to bring the design to live, which helps the client truly visualize the final product, as well as assist with fabric, furniture and finish selections. She has a passion for live music and enjoys spending time exploring Wilmington.

behind gathered there are a team of contractors, trades, artists, and vendors who make each project dream a reality.
