The classic contemporary style feels very at home on Clark Street (just north of Diversey) in a way that seems like it will stick around for a while. This shop is not about trends, but about satisfying many general needs through solid design and customization.
Although we've never purchased anything, others have said that their Intaglia experiences were good ones. Intaglia was originally established in St. Louis in 1994 and now has four total outposts: St. Louis, Chicago, and two in Georgia.
The store offers furnishings for every room and is "affordable" (though we don't have any exact figures to quote for you.)
Anyone have some inside info?
