Town Toiles: Chicago

Town Toiles: Chicago

Janel Laban
Aug 15, 2006

A tourist's dream of our city set in line drawings, Chicago is the newest pattern from Town Toiles. Town Toiles is a line of wallpaper and fabric which uses modern U.S. cities and destinations as its subject instead of the traditional pastoral scenery. As of this month, Chicago has the distinction of being immortalized in a toile.

The take on traditional toile du Jouy features the Chicago Theater marquee, Navy Pier, the Art Institute lions, Buckingham fountain, the river bridges, the Marshall Field's clock, and, of course, the skyline and lake.

Super-kitschy and sort-of sweet, the Chicago toile joins the patterns of New York, San Francisco and Boston among the cities represented.
