On a recent visit to Chicago, I had the opportunity to meet up with my fellow Material Girl’s blogger Julia at her showroom and design studio. While Julia and I have met up on several occasions (both in LA and at High Point Markets) I had yet to visit her in her base city. Along with our friend Lisa Mende, we spent a morning checking out the fab Buckingham ID showroom followed by brunch at SoHo House in Chicago – and had a great time all of us together!

Color Love: Julia loves orange and I love how this piece creates quite the statement in her showroom, against the backdrop of the white painted brick walls.

Accesorized shelving and shaggy colorful stools define Julia’s Modernique style.

Showroom displays include table settings and fun industrial chic stools.

A crazy fun skeletal chair! (And Julia has a cute story about how when the store alarm was once set off, the police dispatched ended up wanting pictures in the chair, that of course, after all was checked out and in the clear!)

On a recent trip to Chicago, I had the opportunity to stay at the newly opened The Langham, an exquisite luxury hotel located at 330 Wabash (home of a Mies van der Rohe designed building). I have been a fan of the architect since my days in design school. The landmark building is located in downtown Chicago adjacent to the river, 52 stories tall, and boasts over 300 guest rooms and suites. The second floor lobby (pictured above) is a testament to simple refined elegance.

The interiors of Travelle, the hotel’s restaurant, features a bar and lounge overlooking the river, and a dining room on the opposite side.

The interiors of Travelle, a great nightlife spot, where I spent an evening hanging out with friends for drinks and food.

The hotel room suites are contemporary, yet classic lines, of understated elegance.

The entry features full height closets and a vanity.

Sophisticated furnishings, neutral colors, and pattern such as the links in the carpet and bedding create a timeless look.

I was in awe of the bar cabinet which features a tilt out for the coffee (happy to find my Nespresso addiction here!), a concealed bar fridge below, and the cabinet and drawers on the sides are stocked with all the hotel amenities you could ever want!

JillSeidner9

The well-appointed bathroom features a wall mounted Geberit toilet, dual Kohler sinks, and Zucchetti bath fittings.

The walk-in shower is completely walled in minimalist stone with both rainhead and detachable shower sprays and a sleek minimal linear shower drain.

A seperate WC features a wall-mounted toilet from Geberit. The European, contemporary design of Geberit’s wall-mounted toilet complement the Langham’s existing aesthetic. Many European luxury hotel designers have turned to Geberit for the sleek design and space-saving benefits for decades, and designers in the U.S. are beginning to follow suit.

Thank you to Geberit for the opportunity to experience The Langham.

Last week I attended the annual Dwell on Design event here in Los Angeles. The event covers many of the latest and innovative products in design, including everything from bath and kitchen design, to flooring and wall applications, to furniture and lighting, exterior and outdoor products, and even prefab houses and cool cars!

Here’s a spotlight on some of the finds featured at this year’s event:

D&M Flooring has some really cool flooring products – vast array of products – solid, engineered, smooth, brushed, fumed, carbonized, and hand scraped. The product above is called SQR and they are wood floor tiles.

Thank you to Geberit for inviting me to attend Dwell on Design this year.

Supermodel Karlie Kloss shares her first NYC apartment, located in the West Village, on a quiet street just a few blocks from the Hudson River. She enlisted interior designer Nate Berkus to help her create the chic look go her very first home.

image

The goal was to create a look that reflects her style, in relating to fashion, to mix and match the same way she does with clothes.

One of her favorite spots, she says, is the kitchen – where she has a passion for baking cookies. I love the multi-level / stairs to kitchen with the paned glass and tiny dining banquette.
