How to Support River North Design Showrooms During this Time

The River North Design District (RNDD) is made up of some of the best showrooms in Chicago which boast interior design offerings accessible to both designers & consumers. Unfortunately many of our beloved showrooms were damaged and vandalized recently. Our hearts go out to them as they begin the process of not only re-opening, but rebuilding. 

The best way that we — as consumers, designers, and design partners — can help our showrooms during this time is to shop local. We encourage all of you to support our design community and when looking for new furniture, textiles, fixtures, and more to shop with our local River North showrooms first. You can find the complete list of our showroom partners here.

In the meantime, here’s just a few of the new products you can find in our showrooms this season.

Highly individualized design treatments, informal woods and casual finishes depict a tranquil elegance, eliciting an unassuming mood that blends to perfection.

Wake Up in a Cool Embrace with a Refreshing Top Mattress from Chicago Luxury Beds

Top mattresses are developed with the ambition to elevate your sleep comfort to a completely new dimension, thanks to the softness of the surface. It is the softness you feel closest to your body. Chicago Luxury Beds‘ (440 N Wells) are so sumptuous due to the natural padding materials of the highest quality. Natural materials of cotton, wool, and horsetail hair help you stay cool and comfortable by wicking away moisture and regulating your body temperature while you sleep. Upgrade your mattress with a luxury topper to keep you cool all summer long. View their collection here.

Hästen’s BV, BJ, and BJX Luxury Mattress Toppers
The quilting of a Hastens topper is unique in that they do not use the industries straight seams as they sew which causes sharp angles and corners that fillings cannot reach. Instead, they sew in a special diamond pattern with soft waves so that the padding reaches everywhere uniformly and follows your body’s movements creating the highest quality mattress topper. Filled with thick, soft cotton and wool, and springy horsetail hair. Traditional and iconic colors available.

Vispring’s Heaven, Heaven Luxury, and Heaven Luxury Supreme Toppers
Handmade to order with the same skill and care as our mattresses, these toppers are hand filled with the softest natural fibers and finished with the most comfortable materials. Filled with British fleece wool and soft needled British wool, cotton, and South American horsetail hair, then edged in contrasting ticking.

OMI’s Wooly Toppers
These certified organic wool pillow toppers add additional plush comfort to the surface of your mattress. Sculpted toppers also provide pressure point relief and increased airflow for cool sleep, while maintaining even support. Our most sumptuous certified organic wool topper materials are sourced from New Zealand, where family and commercial farmers adhere to strict standards in order to assure the certified purity of their fibers.
