Shop: Post 27

Chicago, Illinois
03.04.2011 | by: Meghan

I’m in Chicago right now for some magazine work, and I stopped into one of my favorite design shops to say hi to owner Angela Finney. As always, the space–part shop, part gallery, part incubator–looked amazing. If you’re traveling to Chicago, this is the very best place to get a feel for the local design scene. Angela, who used to design furniture and lighting for Holly Hunt before striking out on her own, has an unmatched eye for really special vintage pieces. She brings in furniture and accessories (an upholstered asterisk by Roscoe Jackson, amazing wood-planed light sculpture by local woodworker Steven Teichelman and ceramics by one of my favorites, Up in the Air Somewhere), creates/builds in-store installations and  collaborates on special projects of her own design, all while hosting pretty regular art shows and acting as the unofficial mayor of the West Grand Avenue design corridor she helped pioneer. Every time I’m there, it looks completely different–and somehow, even better than the time before.
