Under the Radar

Crazy about the non-new? Prepared to travel to unlikely locales or navigate a warehouse or the Web to find really good pieces? Here are three local hidden treasures you should know about

(page 1 of 3)

1. Arthur Swirgon

320 S. California Ave., 773-392-1613.

We stumbled on Swirgon’s off-the-beaten-path store after buying a table from him on eBay. Swirgon, who has a master’s degree in fine art, specializes in mid-century modern American and European pieces, African-American art, and well-made vintage pieces that he cannot necessarily attribute. “Period is more important than designer,” he says. “But the pieces must be of high quality and design.” He opened his store—a diamond in a pretty rough neighborhood—in the fall of 2007; he’s been dealing on eBay for about four years.
