high above the Mag Mile, around the corner
from the Museum of Contemporary Art,
this Chicago client picked a condo in the heart of it all—
and needed some help getting it across the finish line.
two contractors and two interior designers later
[it happens], PROjECT. got the referral for
furniture selection and final polish.
first things first tho:
we had to add some transitions to the interior architecture
—a dropped soffit here, an oversized window box there.
as for the upholstery and finishes, this homeowner’s
radical art collection would steer that ship.
a serious collector of self-taught, outsider art—
the Hairy Who, Roger Brown + Karl Wirsum, to name a few
—careful consideration had to be paid to coloration
and placement of focal points.
in the living room, we leveled up on composition
with a custom, two-part sofa, a vintage marble coffee table,
and a curvaceous rug.
for the dining room, things got textural—
leather-wrapped chairs, a mobile-style hanging light,
a built-in banquette with contrasting straps.
for the media room, some PROjECT-designed
millwork + a triangular bar would do the trick.
serendipitously, we saw eye to eye on sourcing
hand-touched accent pieces with meaningful stories.
[cool + collected everything]
now sit back and enjoy the views.
