The dream home is a nine room, full-sized design house at the Merchandise Mart. A new home is created each year and represents the unparalleled beauty created when the city’s leading interior designers collaborate with the showroom resources at the Merchandise Mart.
The dining room was a nod to California wine country. The relaxed environment brought to mind large family dinners held around a large, inviting table. The unique table lends an organic quality to a space rich with visual interest. The room is draped in restful tones that encourage one to linger and luxurious, comfortable fabrics and warm golden walls and a collage of sculptural lighting that add just the right about of shimmer.
The foyer was inspired by fashion and includes a moody menswear inspired palette of charcoal, ink and white lacquer. The look is timeless and classic. It incorporates upholstered walls in plush mohair, rich walnut wood built-in accents and unexpected inclusion of snakeskin upholstery to keep thing fresh. The antique art deco sconces serve as a counterbalance to all the masculine touches.
