Whether you’re a professional interior designer or one at heart, you’re sure to find something to covet at one of these buzzworthy showrooms at theMART.

It’s no secret that this year marked a new best for the world of interior design and decorating. After all, if you’re home all the time, you might as well make it beautiful. As the world begins to return to its normal pace, local design meccas are keeping the momentum going. “The past year has further defined the strength of the residential market,” says Byron Morton, vice president of leasing at theMART. “Showrooms are reinventing their spaces, bringing in new lines and are dedicated to the synergy Design Center at theMART offers.” Here, five stunning showrooms in the Design Center that are doing just that. 222 Merchandise Mart Plaza, designcenter.com


The Bright Group

Seating, tables, cabinets, credenzas and more await at The Bright Group’s showroom located at 6-166 Merchandise Mart. Having just completed a new expansion that added almost 2,000 square feet, the furniture mecca fits a variety of luxury goods within 10,000 square feet—including the Troscan line, featuring sleek, modern chairs; standout coffee tables; and more. Suite 6-166, thebrightgroup.com


Phillip Jeffries

You may recognize this name if you frequent Holly Hunt, but now you’ll have to shop the products at its new showroom instead. Opening in early September, the showroom will be an epicenter of natural wallcoverings from floral and woven to denim print. Plus, check out the newest collection for summer. Named PJ Artisans, a plethora of wallcoverings awaits. Our favorite? The whimsical-chic Waterfall line. Pop-up at Ste. 619, permanent location to open in September at 6-136, phillipjeffries.com


Cowtan & Tout

Colefax and Fowler, Jane Churchill, Larsen and Manuel Canovas are names you’ll find at Cowtan & Tout’s new sixth-floor location. Having just opened in April, the showroom still carries its regular names, plus its own line. Ste. 6-144, cowtan.com


Osborne & Little

Having been located within the Design Center for over 25 years, Osborne & Little is no stranger to the likes of professionals and connoisseurs in home decor—but even they’re in for a surprise. A new remodel of the showroom just opened in June and hosts a rainbow of new wallpapers, trimmings and fabrics. Ste. 610, osborneandlittle.com



Revamp your bedroom with the Anderkit bed, featuring warm wood tones and a cool, clean-lined cross that canopies the top; or opt to bring everyone together over the crisp Lillet dining table. For lighting, the Abby table lamp adds a feminine touch with curved metal lines at the body. Find all of these pieces, and more, at Michael-Cleary’s expanded showroom. Ste. 6-161, michaelclearyllc.com
