Decorators Supply Corporation: The Past Preserved
What does Marshall Field’s State Street store, the South Shore Country Club and the White City of the 1893 Columbian Exposition have in common? They all incorporated design embellishments from the Decorators Supply Corporation, established in Chicago in 1883.
Decorator’s Supply is still in business today, with the original catalog intact. If they made it then, they make it now, and it’s available for your home project.
This is an unbelievable resource for restorations and shouldn’t be overlooked as a way to add warmth and architectural interest to newer construction.
