The Merchandise Mart here in Chicago has overhauled its interior design showrooms, consolidating them onto two floors and in the process updating, upgrading and renovating most of them. It's a wonderful experience to walk around one floor and see showroom after showroom with new pieces, new layouts, and inspirational furnishings.
One new face in the Mart is the Lalique showroom on the sixth floor. I knew of Lalique's collectibles and tabletop accessories like vases, but I didn't know they had a full line of tables, lighting, and other furnishings. The sumptuous lines of their Art Deco crystal-ornamented pieces, inspired by nature, are almost too beautiful to imagine owning in one's own home. (And let's be honest - at this price point, that's not something most of us have to worry about.) But they're truly a feast for the eyes. Enjoy!
