A Still Life

Space 519 Lunchroom with Letinsky-1.jpeg

Canadian contemporary photographer Laura Letinsky is best known for her elegant but slightly off-putting images.  Letinsky’s work is reminiscent of a Dutch Golden Age still-life, often a perfect replication of local produce, but presented as an act of realism - the aftermath of such perfection.

We chose this color photograph as the focal artwork for a Chicago concept store and cafe because of both the inherent subject matter, and the artist’s unique vision. We like that this print, while a true complement to the space and environment in terms of color, brings additional life to this already bustling restaurant.

Fun House

Selecting playful artwork for this Park City playroom was both fun and challenging.  The fun part was the youthful and colorful subject matter, and the challenging part was making the installation look chic.  

We selected affordable posters that were similar in size, and custom framed the pieces in white matte lacquer.  We omitted the border to keep the style contemporary, and the look cohesive on a patterned wall-covering.

Wall covering and interiors, in James Thomas Chicago’s effortless and elegant style, gave us the perfect platform to show that fabulous design can be the perfect kind of affordable.

The entrance to your home is the perfect place to add personality and style with colorful artwork and objects.

We styled this entry foyer with a painting by artist Mary Abbott titled Self-Portrait and a gold metal leaf salvaged brick from artist Amanda Williams' installation at McCormick Gallery titled It's a Gold Mine/ Is the Gold Mine?, 2016.  

Additional layers of books, objects and lighting makes for good looks and great personality.

Play Rooms can be Fun and Fabulous with the addition of affordable, colorful art.  

In this happy, child-filled Lakeview home, we had a ball working with Jessica Lagrange Interiors placing a series of colorful Last Leaves prints, by Doug Fogelson, above the sectional sofa.  With the right mat and frame, an affordable print can make your family space look like a million bucks!
