designer's guild

While in Chicago, our office was two blocks from the Marshall Field's State Street Store. (may Field's rest in peace since awful Macy's took over ... don't get me started). I used to take lunch breaks and wander the floors, finding inspiration from top to bottom. I discovered Thomas O'Brien long before he was at Target (he had wonderful mid-century antiques for sale through his Aero store). And I also discovered Designer's Guild. Tricia Guild is a British designer who embraces color. I wanted to move into her showroom at the MF store (like From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler).
