MAY STAFF PICKS

Martha Morimoto

MATTHEW RACHMAN, OWNER

Pearsall Wave Chaise

“The simple yet purposeful contour lines of this chaise are accentuated by the dynamic fabric choices of dyed cowhide and natural leather.”

Curtis Jere Wall Sculpture

“Jere’s work is prolific and exquisite. The patina of this piece and its metallic tones bring the wall sculpture to life.”

The Artwork of Doug Stapleton

“Doug Stapleton is a talented Chicago artist. His collages build on architectural and sculptural elements from the past, which make them rather compelling.”


JUSTINE SALVA, GALLERY DIRECTOR

“Former (Flowers for Boys)” by Jeffrey Cortland Jones

“‘Former (Flowers for Boys)’, along with the rest of Jones’s work, is sublime and entrancing. Staring into the piece is akin to trying to remember a wonderful dream. It is hazy and vague, yet completely delightful.”  

Set of Koppel for Slagelse Møbelvaerk Chairs

“The set of four chairs have just enough character and whimsy to still be considered a typical wooden dining chair, however they are far from commonplace.”

Set of Accent Chairs

“The slim set of chairs are perfect as accent chairs, at a small dining table, a desk, or as occasional chairs. The neutral tones work perfectly with any aesthetic point of view.”  


M.T. WILSON, CONSULTANT

Geometric Coffee Table

“This stupendous modern and futuristic coffee table reminds me of the cult classic film 'Dune'. This piece offers the rare and unique opportunity to help break up the predictable square and rectangular shapes in one's living room, this is great for creating unprecedented and exciting dynamism."

"Square #43" by Greg Dickerson

“You don’t always need color to make a statement as any fellow fan of minimalism can subscribe. This piece comes off as balanced and calming yet it is very eye-catching.”

Chicago Vintage 1980s Boxing Photos

“These framed black and white photographs are a perfect example of how displaying sports memorabilia can be tasteful and not tacky. While I am a boxing aficionado, you don’t have to be a fan yourself to appreciate these candid and decisive moment shots that transport you to that instant.”

 


MARTHA MORIMOTO, DESIGN + MARKETING COORDINATOR

Torbjørn Adfal Dry Bar

“Designed by Torbjørn Adfal for Bruskbo, this 1960s dry bar features a flip top for extra space and shelving for storage. The details of the rosewood is absolutely stunning, and would be a great addition to your living room.”

Dunbar Extending Dining Table

“This mahogany extending dining table is perfect for any household! From everyday meals to dinner parties, this is the perfect solution to your dining room needs.”

"Scattered Floes" by Nicholas Kriefall

“Nicholas Kriefall’s work is truly something special and we are thrilled to be showing his work in the fall. 'Scattered Floes' is by far my favorite, as it shows incredible depth and texture!"


JULIA KULON, GALLERY COORDINATOR

Lucite Ladder

“The lucite offers an incredible versatility aesthetically and the form of the ladder itself lends itself to a plethora of different interpretations. An impromptu bookshelf? A new home for one’s succulents? Imagine the wealth of possibilities with this blank canvas of furniture! The openness of it is astounding.”

Emilio Cruz, “Figures in a Landscape”

“‘Figures in a Landscape’ by Emilio Cruz is a dreamlike expressionist painting. Cruz’s use of rainbow palette speaks to the vitality and movement of the human body interacting with its environment.”

Sputnik Chandelier

“The sputnik chandelier is a perfect example of sculptural function. It is the hint that is usually missing in one’s dining or living room.”


GARRETT NUTGRASS, MARKETING INTERN

Goatskin Extending Dining Table

“I enjoy this piece because it serves as a statement piece while also offering function. It ups the presentation level for any family meal. Italian designer-maker Aldo Tura was known for rich materials and hand crafted techniques and this piece reflects that.”

“Particles” by Doug Frohman

“Contemporary Chicago artist Doug Frohman mixes unique painting techniques with architectural inspiration to create his stunning paintings. I particularly like this one because it creates a three dimensional illusion to the eye, where some layers appear to be in the foreground and others in the backdrop.”

Baughman Rosewood Benches

“These beautiful benches are spectacular from near or afar, I love the unique swirls and natural patterns within the rosewood. From the 1970’s by designer Milo Baughman, can’t you imagine these being perfect for family gatherings or around an equally unique dining table?”
