Old News: Chicago Reader Feature

The living room with the Acapulco Chair and a handwoven rug from Mexico

My living room

In January the Chicago Reader’s Andrea Bauer came by to photograph my apartment and talk to me about furniture, style, and the history of the neighborhood. My favorite things about the article was that it gave me an opportunity to learn more about the history of my apartment from my fantastic landlady, Vicki Logan. It turns out that her grandmother, who bought the building in 1939, was a seamstress and an activist in the International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ union. Freaky! Video and article here.
