Lakeshore High-RiseAiry, light-filled, sleek, and modern — that’s what comes to mind when we think of the glassy, clean-lined high-rises that line Chicago’s Lakeshore area. With that image as our inspiration, we picked a range of furnishings and accents designed to complement the visual drama and sweeping vistas that an apartment in the sky affords.

London CallingWith the Games upon us, we’re reminded of how much we love London for so many reasons — not the least of which is its classic-yet-dandy design sensibility. Here, we’ve got everything from furnishings (from an elegantly simple gray-wool club chair to benches and sofas emblazoned with the Union Jack) to whimsical accents (who doesn’t need a “British Invasion Dust Pan”)? You’ll also find lighting, rugs, and some oh-so-British nibbles like sticky toffee pudding.
