We were sad to hear that Modernica's showroom in River North is closing. Modernica has stores in Chicago and LA as well as a website where customers can shop online. Janel reviewed Modernica last year and touched on the issue of their high-quality renditions, which have sparked a heated debate over intellectual property and licensing. We haven't bought anything there, but have stopped in the showroom several times and were always greeted by friendly staff.
