After several years at his Lakeview location, home enhancer George Lowell has joined the Andersonville pilgrimage and opened up shop at 5123 N. Clark Street. This stretch of Clark south of Foster (I can’t bring myself to call it SoFo, I just can’t) is developing into quite the lively design district, with shops like Baan Home, Marguerite Gardens, Foursided, and now Lowell’s emporium of sharp and eclectic furniture and accessories. Things are going swimmingly, reports George, who has tripled the size of his store and packed it with creamy ceramic urns, Adler-esque pillows, oversized Romanesque statuary, and lots more me-approved merchandise. Mostly new, with the occasional antique in the mix. He’s also an experienced interior decorator who brings a fun formality to his work, playing with scale and using unexpected artwork to liven up spaces.
