A sneak peek at the upcoming issue of Metropolitan Home brought a nice local surprise - a classic Chicago Beaux Arts co-op that got a chic and quirky modern makeover by architect Dirk Denison and designer Michael Richman is featured...

Located in a building designed by Benjamin Marshall in 1925, the apartment is owned by businessman Michael Alper.

Shown above, left to right:
1. The bedroom features a vintage Italian desk, custom nightstands designed to work with the vintage piece and an upholstered bed.
2. A custom "Huggy Bear" sofa by Richman in the library. (Great green walls!)
3. The owner uses the dining room as a home office. The glass topped table is built on a base by sculptor Gene Summers.

To view the entire article and all the photos look for the May issue of Metropolitan Home, on sale April 14.
