1. Chicago Residence by Amy Lau Design
For this 3,000-square-foot townhouse, designer Amy Lau was tasked with creating a space that was livable, while also primed for entertaining. She carefully selected striking yet inviting furniture that would allow for larger and more intimate gatherings. A collection of conversation-worthy art, including a monumental sculpture by postwar abstractionist, Claire Falkenstein, adds to the home’s dynamic aesthetic.
