This Week: Assemblage
Assemblage offers a collection of mid-century modern furniture, art and accessories so interesting and unique it prompted 1st Dibs (how I love thee) to reach out and contact them shortly after opening (a first for the online collective of antique dealers known for its long waiting list for new listing members).
Assemblage’s 5500 square foot showroom, which is lit by 15 mirror-backed Venini chandeliers, is stocked with pieces that may not appear familiar to the beginning mid-century buff, but which offers rare finds from important and respected designers that will help you build an interesting and authentically mid-century collection without making your home look like a Design Within Reach showroom (think custom pieces by Michael De Santis, Ron Seff and Mildred Warder alongside or instead of the usual suspects).
Continued . . .
Owners, Gary Stier (formerly of Architectural Artifacts) and Fred Shaw, share a passion for mid-century pieces, and it shows; within weeks of opening, the new business owners began taking orders from designers around the world, including several on the Architectural Digest Top 100.
Despite the caliber of the pieces, Assemblage is extremely accessible, and the staff there loves educating customers and casual shoppers about the collection. So assemble your friends and head over to Assemblage, which is located at 121 N. Jefferson (across the street from Primitive). 312-234-9200.
