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.

Adding to the festival feel are food-truck snacks throughout the weekend; look for the Tamale Guy, Southern Mac & Cheese, Falafel Bros., Sweet Ride and e.leaven.

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.)

With bubbly from Sofia by Francis Ford Coppola Winery and bites from Real Kitchen, it sounds like one coup after another.
