I was so honored to be selected as one of the nine designers for the coveted Merchandise Mart DreamHome exhibit, which runs from now until December 9, 2011.
My firm, Buckingham Interiors + Design, was chosen to design the foyer. My goal was to incorporate different eras and textures- along with a visual “jolt” into the first room one sees upon entering a home. The pieces used for my space came from many of my favorite showrooms at the Mart- Holly Hunt, Bradley Hughes (the newest showroom at the Mart) Dessin Fournir, Baker, Donghia, Boyd Lighting, Paris Ceramics, Lee Jofa, Summerhill and Richard Norton Inc. The showrooms play a huge part in this event as they graciously donate pieces to be on display for the duration of this 9th annual event showcasing design talent from the Midwest. Thank you all for being so magnanimous in letting me select and highlight your stunning pieces!
Here’s a little blurb about what inspired me to create this space…
I had so much fun working on this room, and I hope that Chicago area MGs can come out to enjoy the fantastic exhibit. The Dream House is open Monday-Friday, 10 AM – 5 PM, and Saturday 10 AM- 3 PM. Photography of my Foyer by Hedrich Blessing and Eric Hausman.
