Looking to step up your decor game? Consider these interior design resources your go-tos to a fabulously chic abode.
1. Ligne Roset
For 160 years, this French brand has been at the cutting edge of modern luxury, and the line’s 2020 collection is no exception. From the très charmante Soufflot chair upholstered in rose corduroy to the alluring T, Twirl and Buee vases, the heritage brand offers something to brighten every home. 440 N. Wells St., ligne-roset.com
2. Roche Bobois
This iconic French design brand is celebrating 60 years with a bang— or should we say a Bombom, the wild and whimsical new collection designed for the brand by Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos. From a sensuously undulating sofa to the swirly-psychedelic Tutti Frutti rug and a slate of patterned pillows, these pieces are sure to add serious pizzazz to any living space. 222 W. Hubbard St., roche-bobois.com
3. Studio 6F
Studio 6F founder and principal designer Gil Melott is known for his impeccable eye, and we’re duly impressed with his latest discoveries, including Chicago-area artist Colt Seager and L.A.-based design studio Kiscop, with striking lamps, furniture and—our personal picks— flowing carved wooden cutting boards and serving trays that add serious visual appeal to any spread of edibles. studio6f.com
Something as simple as a coffee table can utterly transform a room— especially if that table is from storied Italian brand Minotti, whose 2020 collection abounds with stunning examples. Our favorites? The Flirt, a gleaming piece crafted of a sheet of polished stainless steel bent to form two Cs; and the Brutalist-inspired Block, featuring a handsome base of lacquered oak topped with a smooth HPL rectangle that begs to be touched. 419 W. Superior St., minottichicago.com.
5. Jayson Home
A go-to for chic Chicagoans for more than 25 years, Jayson Home is a treasure trove of fabulously unique home furnishings. Case in point: the cubism-inspired Piece pillow series. Notes VP of Merchandising Devin Kirk, “I love the handpainted texture and the pleasing palette of the Kelly Wearstler print we used for the pillows. It’s such a fresh take on cold cubism—and the scale of the pattern is so large that no two pillows are ever the same, leaving you with a one-of-a-kind work of art and a soft place to land.” 1885 N. Clybourn Ave., jaysonhome.com
6. WPA Chicago
The exclusive Illinois home for Italian design giants B&B Italia, Maxalto and Arclinea, this sophisticated showroom offers abundant selections to add pop to any room—like B&B’s colorful, hexagonal Tramae ottoman (made in collaboration with design studio unPizzo) and—perfect for those WFH days—the Recipe ’14 writing desk from Maxalto. 314 W. Superior St., Ste. 110, wpachicago.com
