{The Painted Lady}

I featured a post a few weeks ago about Chicago Home + Garden’s latest issue, “Best of the New in 2011,” and I am so excited to say that the Grand Avenue (West Town) district of Chicago has been deemed the “Best New Design District” in the city!  Grand Avenue is not only home to my own showroom, but it also is the most up and coming area for many designers, showrooms and shops, both those new on the scene and those looking to relocate to this latest design hub.  In fact, my friends at Scentimental Gardens opened up a second shop (their first is in Geneva, IL)-SG Grand- right next to me!  We even have our very own website touting the neighborhood and alerting all to upcoming events and happenings.  Nice to have such fantastic neighbors 🙂

Super Cool. My usual go-to area was River North, However I may have to make a stop on Grand instead! Thanks for the info..

Any insight on fabric shopping in the area? I’m jonesing for a visit as soon as snowmageddon melts….I take the train in and cab it from The Drake. There’s gotta be something besides Fishman’s, right? Whatever happened to that awesome home dec store on LaSalle?

Fabulous! I love the design and every detail of your furnitures! It is very unique and each piece artistically made. You’ve done a great job.
