This Week: Pavilion Antiques
Dusk had taken hold when I visited Pavilion Antiques last week, and lit as it was by lamps, overheads and light sculptures, the corner shop glowed from the street. For some reason, when illuminated so, Pavilion’s white walls and floor and its high design, its nickel, lucite and brass, seemed like how Woody Allen circa 1978 might interpret heaven in one of his films. Of course, Pavilion’s not heaven, but with their emphasis on French, Italian and Scandinavian 20th century design, owners Deborah Colman and Neil Kraus speak with a unique and commanding voice in Chicago’s design scene. I mighty like their gospel, and I think you will too brothers and sisters. Make the pilgrimage soon.
