What’s Hot this Summer in the River North Design District

The River North Design District (RNDD) is made up of some of the best showrooms and design partners in Chicago which boast interior design offerings accessible to both designers & consumers. The showrooms carry everything from textiles, tiles, and rugs, to kitchens and furnishings. With Summer finally arriving in Chicago, we wanted to share the hottest products of the season from our members.
