This is so brilliant. Chairish has launched a Chicago City Guide! You don’t have to be in Chicago to shop from these pieces, of course — Chairish will ship them across the country. If you are local though, you can go pick them up and skip the shipping fees. See? Brilliant.
I’ve chosen a dozen of my local favorites to feature below, and I have even more Chairish picks from Chicago in my collection on the site.
Eames DCM Style Bentwood & Steel Chairs – A Pair
Two of these cuties flanking a credenza would be perfect.
Chromcraft Smoked Lucite and Chrome Dinette
Kinda weird, but in a really good way.
Four Post Gold Leaf Table Lamp
The rectangular support structure is fantastic, and the shade of top is just the right proportion. So good!
C. Jere Style Brass Faceted Pedestals – Set of 3
Because I’m sure you need some super shiny brass pedestals, right?
Industrial Desktop Lighting
The adjusting mechanisms on this look super cool.
C. Jere Brass Double Shade Floor Lamps – A Pair
So sleek! So mod! Would be perfect juxtaposed with a more traditional tufted chair, tucked away in the corner as a spot for reading.
Black and Gold Distressed Tuxedo Side Table
Simple in its lines, but with just enough detail to add interest.
Iranian Flateweave Kilim Rug
Sometimes these rugs are teeny, but this is a decent 8.5″x5.5″ size, and in great colors.
Milo Baughman For Thayer Coggin Button Up Sofa
Bassett Faux Bamboo Dresser
How I wish I had a good spot for this! Ah, but maybe you do?
Starburst Sculpture on Marble Stand
When you wish upon a star…
Chairish makes it easy to sell and browse from their iPhone app, and I’m loving the addition of City Guides like this one for Chicago. And as always, in addition to the local pickup option, they can help arrange for shipping cross-country with a 48-hour return window. You know, so you can give that table and chairs set a try. Someone’s gotta be into them besides me, right? But if not, there’s always
all of my other favorites to check out.
