Pin to Win : Our Winner!

Congratulations to our winner, Elizabeth!  Her space was filled with an array of products in gorgeous warm colors, classic but nontraditional.  Pieces for the self and home that are long lasting and versatile.

We can envision the Aubin Framed Reproduction above a mantle, flanked by the Cobalt and Amber Vase, the Lion Bookends supporting some books.  Or maybe an elegant office; lit by the Amber Glass Lamp, a stack of papers held in place by the Murano Glass Egg, the Deco Shawl haphazardly thrown across the back of the chair.  Or perhaps a dining room; soft light glowing from the Tiffany Tulips Lamp, the Plum Wave Bowl offering up snacks for guests, the Art Glass Vases brimming with autumn leaves and berry branches, the hostess dazzling in the Silk & Semi-precious Stone Necklace.

Really, Elizabeth chose an assortment of products that create a cohesive and well-rounded collection any way you cut it.  Great job!

It was so tough for us to choose, the submissions were outstanding!  We rounded up some other spaces that just couldn't go unnoticed.

Kathleen chose an architectural round-up, and we are happy to celebrate Chicago architecture at any time.  She was spot on with her choices.  They are some of our most popular items!

Soft curves, intertwining and embracing, support the overall message of enduring love and friendship that comprised Lisa's collection of items. We were certainly smitten!

Our Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity exhibition recently closed, but lives on in many of our hearts.  Lelia paid homage to the show with her collection of pieces from 19th century artists and memorabilia from the show.

Thank you to all who participated!
