Your home is your sanctuary – it’s where you prepare for the day ahead, study for upcoming exams, and relax after a long day of classes. So it has to be comfortable, which means it needs to reflect your unique style and personality. That’s why we put together this list of our three favorite downtown Chicago shops for outfitting your space. Check them out to find the finishing touches for your INFINITE apartment.
Make a Statement With a Faribault Throw
No doubt you’re not thinking about winter at the moment, but now’s a great time to pick up a throw blanket from Faribault Woolen Mill Co. Head over to The Shops at North Bridge on Michigan Avenue and pick up one of these bold accessories. Each one features amazing designs that could be the focal point of your bedroom or living area. You can choose from blankets that feature maps, flag designs from around the world, bold stripes, subtle geometric patterns, and even the work of guest artists. Each one celebrates the legacy and craftsmanship of a mill that’s been in operation in the Midwest for over a century.
Give Your Home a Modern Edge With Room & Board
This furniture and home decor shop showcases items that feature what they call “trend-proof style.” Their home accessories have a classic, modern look, and 90% of them are made by American craftspeople and manufacturers, which means your purchases will support local communities. Check out the Magnus Tabletop Frame for a unique way to showcase your photo collection. And their Brando Leather Tray is the perfect place to store your sunglasses and keys.
Bring in a Little Antique Flair at P.O.S.H.
If you love antiquing, be sure to check out P.O.S.H. on State Street. They have an extensive collection of vintage dishware, candle holders, frames, and more. Elegant French kitchen items include everything from cute tea towels to classic French stoneware, or check out their unique collection of books that are pretty enough to double as design elements when stacked on a shelf or coffee table. They also have plenty of quirky knickknacks you might enjoy.
