If our living rooms were imported straight from the velvet-couch-and-bleached-antler vignettes at the Jayson Home showroom in Lincoln Park, we wouldn?t change a thing.
Once a year, the mostly non-vintage store brings in a bumper crop of antiques for its fall flea market, which starts today and runs through Sunday under a white tent in Jayson?s brick courtyard.
Buyers have scoured France, Belgium, England and beyond, and the mix includes furniture, tableware, lighting, book and oddities. In a fifth-anniversary twist, creative director Caroline Scheeler says they?ve brought in a particularly nice haul of brass ?60s and ?70s vintage modern pieces from Paris.
Later this month, Jayson will be the only Chicago store to host a book signing with designer Nate Berkus (October 23) to celebrate his latest coffee-table tome, The Things That Matter. (The book release on October 16 coincides with this month?s debut of the Nate Berkus Collection at Target.)
