Jean de Merry and an Old French Family Secret

Jean de Merry, a French transplant now living in Los Angeles, has brought his updates on neoclassical and French Deco shapes to Chicago through designer Kara Mann’s River North showroom. Look for chandeliers and bronze, silver-plated, and brass sconces; aged-looking leather club chairs (the process is an old French family secret-the furniture is made in L.A.); and dramatic gold-leafed consoles. Kara Mann, 119 W. Hubbard St., 312-893-7590; jeandemerry.com
