Chicago Interiors explores extraordinary interior spaces in Chicago presented through notes, models, and material boards from designers responsible for them.
As a city that famously rose from the ashes of the Great Chicago Fire, Chicago literally rebuilt itself as an international center for commerce and trade, as well as a burgeoning cultural epicenter. Since the fire, Chicago has retained the old and intermingled it with the new. Like the buildings in this city, interiors have shifted with the times -- from the dust of commerce, slaughterhouses, and industry, buildings were reborn and repurposed time and again as both public and private spaces with new buildings abutting and intermingling with the old. Chicago Interiors showcases new and the re-envisioned.
