We think the Chicago outpost in his growing retail empire is worth a visit. A great location is a good start, nestled in by DWR, POSH, Room and Board and the Bloomingdales Home Store; this strip of River North makes for a fun hour or two of interiors grazing.
We like the store design as well, the collection of mini-rooms gives the impression of visiting an apartment of an eccentric friend who did the look from head to toe (or more accurately - from floor to ceiling).We just shot a house tour this weekend which featured a Jonathan Adler piece in the dining room.
The Channing Buffet looked gorgeous mixed with a more rustic table and opened our eyes to the flexibility of many of Adler's pieces. Together they are BIG style, but using a piece or two in a less theatrical space brings just enough of the glamour and retro style to make a nice impact.
Impressed by how wonderful the piece looked, we were reminded to finally get the shop into our Guide and inspired to visit again soon.
