I've been shopping at Nadeau for years, and have found so many gems to add to both my personal collection as well as several client projects. The quality, especially for the pricepoint, is fantastic. Some of the pieces are quite colorful, so I've had a few refinished to fit a particular interiors. Keith, the manager is very helpful, kind and hustles to make clients happy.

I've been sourcing from Montauk Sofa for years, and they never disappoint. Maria, the showroom manager, is one of the most informed, kind and professional individuals I've ever worked with. The endless customization options combined with beautiful, hand crafted pieces add truly exceptional "wow factor" to my designs.

Jayson Home & Garden is an excellent source for unique accessories, furniture and florals. Jayson Home has such a wonderful, eclectic, well curated vibe, that sometimes I head in knowing that something will pop out as inspiration for a new project. I also love creating bouquets from Jayson's assortment of fresh florals -- great for photo shoots, parties or just to pretty up your space.

Great, accessible showroom with a beautiful selection of rugs. The staff is so knowledgeable, that after every visit, I leave with additional knowledge of the weaving processes and understanding of the source of their products.

A Chicago staple for vintage, one of a kind finds. This is such a charming, well curated shop in a fun, upbeat environment.

Plaid & scottish themed blankets galore! Cool place to source vintage inspired barware.
