Are you looking to make a major change to your life with minimal effort? Take some time this year to give your home a makeover with home goods and decor that will dramatically upgrade the way you live almost instantly. The South Loop apartments at NEMA Chicago offer the ultimate canvas to make your design dreams come to life with chic, modern, tech-connected interiors and, of course, the jaw-dropping views of Chicago and Lake Michigan. And you can level up the luxury of your home here with just a few touches from some of our favorite places. Let's take a look.
Designers Linen Source | 222 Merchandise Mart Plaza
If 2020 taught us anything, it's that our living spaces have to be our sanctuary. And there's no better place to start than the place you spend most of your time in—the bedroom, specifically your bed. Treat yourself to some of the best bedding in the world at Designers Linen Source. From crisp, white sheet sets to down comforters to soft alpaca fur-filled pillows and duvets, this shop offers items that will make your bedroom rival any five-star hotel. Designers Linen Source has something for every style, too, from rustic-chic linen to prim-and-proper percale. There's a reason why Chicago's A-list interior designers shop here. Make an appointment at the showroom where, according to their website, the staff takes every health precaution recommended.
Jonathan Adler | 676 North Wabash Avenue
From potter to the purveyor of playful home decor, Jonathan Adler has added his version of whimsy to well-appointed homes around the world for decades. Shop here if you're looking to add something over-the-top or a conversation starter—and there are plenty of them to be had. The designs you'll find in this funky shop reference everything from the long-gone glamor of old Hollywood to a midcentury futurist's version of how the home might look in 2021, all while keeping up with and creating trends of today. Who else but Jonathan Adler could make an acrylic box shaped like a pill a must-have item on a credenza?
Room & Board | 55 East Ohio Street
Room & Board is one of the few design stores to offer ultramodern and stylish home decor and furniture that's contemporary yet timeless. This is where you go to find the perfect big-ticket pieces that you'll use daily, like a sofa, bed, rugs, or dining room table. Thanks to their commitment to quality and leading design, you could even buy all of your furniture from here without having your home look homogeneous. Their well-made products are the perfect way to add sophistication to even the most traditionally utilitarian spaces. Imagine having a sleek at-home office with an American-made, Danish-style desk when you move into your new home at NEMA Chicago.
This year, find your perfect home in the South Loop neighborhood, at NEMA Chicago.
