Best of Chicago Design: Evolution of a Shop

Pavilion

In the past few years, this Bucktown shop (which once offered everything from antique mirrors and chandeliers to 18th-century French chairs) has become particularly well known for its wonderful selection of post-war design, primarily from France and Italy. The owners, both graduates of the School of the Art Institute’s M.F.A. program, have always brought a learned point of view to their work, and interior designers love them for it. Nowadays, their offerings include new design objects from around the world. Pavilion is becoming a source for artisan-made modern pieces—including works by local start-ups—that feel as special as the vintage objets that surround them.
