Prepare yourself. This 30,000-square-foot showroom is packed with a collection of home goods that will keep you busy for hours. The Bridgeport gallery features everything from patchwork leather baskets to old neon signs and vintage furniture. Most of this stuff comes with a pretty hefty price tag though.
Derived from the word “honeybird” and pronounced like neighbor, this store is located in Chicago’s Ukrainian Village. Its emphasis on fine art and curious objects can be seen in its curated selection of home items, paintings, plants, and gifts. Neybir also offers personalized design and styling services.
Based in Chicago’s trendy Fulton Market District, this bright showroom with midcentury flair represents over 60 brands of contemporary furniture, lighting, home accessories, and rugs. Morlen Sinoway Atelier also has an in-house interior design service if you happen to need a professional hand.
While just about every antique store touts its collection of “one of kind” pieces, the off-the beaten-path store in Logan Square takes the concept to the extreme. Shoppers with a curiosity for retro scientific or medical items will find lots to like here. From vintage surgical lights to decorative collections of glass eyes, Agent Gallery takes “unusual” to the next level.
