Modern Chicago

Architecture & Interiors

2Modern Design Talk is going to take you on a little tour across the United States, looking for the best in modern lifestyle resources by major metropolitan city. We are starting with Seattle and zig-zagging our way to New York. If you have any suggestions for our directory, which we will be constantly improving and adding, please let us know by providing comments to the posts.

Today, we take on Chicago. What a wonderful city. When I first visited Chicago, I expected Sears tower. I expected Wrigley Field. I expected good food and music…but I didn’t expect an incredibly modern city that is stacked with modern art, furniture, architecture and culture. Plus, the people were absolutely wonderful…a treat not always present in large cities.
