Victoria Jaiani, 29, and Temur Suluashvili, 33, travel the world performing and teaching for the Joffrey Ballet, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this fall. As classical dancers, the married couple—who met in their native country of Georgia—embrace the traditional. But they also enjoy the new works that their troupe performs each season, and the decor at the Rogers Park loft they share with their 13-month-old son, Maxim, reflects that idea of balance. “I love pieces with history behind them,” says Jaiani. Suluashvili, on the other hand, spends his free time creating new keepsakes, such as tables and lamps. Here are some of the duo’s favorite possessions.
