Nate Berkus' Chicago Apartment

Elle Decor 09.08

The current issue of Elle Decor features Nate Berkus's newly decorated place - overlooking Lake Michigan, located in a vintage 1929 building, in an apartment which was renovated in the 40's by architect Samuel Marx. So, yeah, it's got quite a lot going for it already but the decor is some tasty icing on the cake. Very masculine, classic and elegant but not stuffy, it is a glamorous city home filled with 90% vintage and antique pieces. Jump below for photos...

The Living Room (shown above the jump) has a fantastic, graphic b&w rug by Madeline Weinrib. The faux bamboo chairs are from Mantiques Modern and the cocktail table and shelves are from local Chicago shop, Pavilion.

Another shot of the living room features two items from another Chicago source, Jayson Home & Garden - a black linen sofa and 1960's vintage green armchair.

The kitchen features green metal cabinets, original to the space.

We love the look of a wall of books. The sofa is by Nate Berkus.

More books - this time on an oversized yellow velvet ottoman. The fireplace and oak walls are original.
