A great mix of local design, reuse and urban style come together in Shane's condo. She writes: "My home is an 820 square foot condo in the heart of River North. The view east to the city has an incredible skyline view. Sustainability was a key component in designing the interiors.

Low VOC and chalkboard paints were used on the walls. The computer table, coffee table, and industrial cart next to the sofa were all made using recycled wood and created by local furniture designers. The midcentury credenza in the bedroom was found on Craigslist. The Christian Dell Bauhaus scissors lamp was found on ebay, and the edison bulb fixtures above the kitchen island were custom made as well. It was designed with the help of Angela Finney-Hoffman, of Post 27 fame. I would describe the style as a blend of modern and vintage."

Thanks, Shane!
