When I did a surrealism shoot for Chicago Magazine last year, my immediate source was Elements Chicago. In fact, it still is. It's a true emporium of all the best of design, including some exclusive pieces. And most important of all, it's fun! (and shouldn't all design be fun after all?) I was in love with their ceramics line by the incredible and respected Waylande Gregory; you'll notice his work in the photos immediately, very modern and slightly-Grecian ceramics that just tug at my heartstrings. And how about those woven rubber baskets? Awesome. They'll be launching some new items of his in the next few weeks, make sure to stop in and stay up with their constantly shifting inventory. And let's show the world that Chicago is the design capital of the country after all!
