(page 2 of 4)

Bladon Conner art

BLADON CONNER ART ($30 to $120 for smaller-scale pieces,
“This beam survived the Chicago fire. Conner added an image of the Metropolitan Correctional Center, combining the city’s past and present architectural heritage.”



Red and white bally loafers

“These belonged to my great-aunt and are a testament to her fearless style. She once wore a canary-yellow pantsuit to meet the crown prince of Japan.”



Voluspa candle

VOLUSPA CANDLE ($20, Eskell, 1509 N. Milwaukee Ave.)
“I adore the Lichen & Vetiver one, which is a mix of woodsy and musk.”



Kidrobot figurines

KIDROBOT FIGURINES ($30 to $60 for similar styles,
“I purchased them as gifts for my little cousins, then it turned into a mini obsession. Cute and cheeky.”



A wooden gothic chair

“I got this from a woman whose grandmother was an avid collector of Gothic furniture. It reads like a historical relic without being overwhelming.”
