My Office/Showroom nearly always functions as a shop, with virtually anything in it being up for sale at any given time. I have been an avid collector and antique junkie for many years, so acquiring and selling things has become a natural life cycle in my business and personal life. I have learned to not become overly attached to particular pieces, as I am always shifting/gifting/selling/moving things around, and thus acquiring more. In fact, my family has become accustomed to this “here today, gone tomorrow” mentality in which anything is fair game, including artifacts in my own home. I have about 10 treasures that will always remain in my possession (the inspiration items that mean so very much to me) and remain NFS-not including my three “Jewels” and my “Prince”-aka children and my husband.
It has happened on more than one occasion where I have been asked “Didn’t we used to have a different lamp here?” Like my love for fashion and searching for beautiful things, I am always craving something new and different for my own spaces.
The look of my Office + Showroom has changed along with my latest art exhibits. Since I initially opened my latest Showroom in the West Town Neighborhood of Chicago last year (check out a post featuring the original decor here), I wanted to share the changes and the current state of the BID headquarters. We have gone through changes all along- this keeps our inventory evolving and introduces our clients to many new and different artists and artifacts. Along with the virtual changes, we are thrilled to be aligned with the most amazing new clients- it is a pretty thrilling time on Grand Avenue.
If you are in the neighborhood, I’d love for you to stop by. As we all know, everything looks much better in person!
Buckingham Interiors + Design 1820 W. Grand Avenue, Chicago. All art and artifacts are available for relocation into your home-as always- but may change at any time
