Boris Eckey from "HGTV Star" is one of the contestants in Season 8 of the reality design competition series formerly known as "HGTV Design Star." He is from Los Angeles, California.

A native of Hamburg, Germany, Boris Eckey's introduction to the design industry came at an early age; his mother worked as an interior designer and his father was an architect. Boris attended the Academy of Arts in San Francisco where he received a B.A. in architectural interior design. Despite limited English-speaking skills, Boris launched his own design firm while enrolled in school.

After 15 years as a successful designer, his company now creates designs for a range of projects, from small residential spaces to large hotels. He credits his upbringing in Europe and extensive travel for his appreciation of historical influences paired with contemporary pieces, a design style he calls "comfortable luxury."
