IMPORTANT! Our Warehouse has moved to 900 W Cermak Rd and is available by appointment only.

In addition to our flagship store, experience even more treasures from collections housed in our legendary 20,000 square foot warehouse in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood. Many of the items at the warehouse never made their way to the store, so we’re sure you’ll find something captivating, meaningful and unique. Shop unmatched collections of original furniture from India, China and beyond, architectural elements, sculptures, art, and objects for home and garden.

The warehouse is filled with authentic items which come from the hand and heart, each piece with its own distinct story. Whether you’re a collector, designer, or someone who simply enjoys living with attractive, original objects and furnishings, you will find some of the world’s most unique treasures at the warehouse.

Access to our legendary warehouse is limited and needs to be arranged in advance with a Client Advisor. Public access is also available for our much anticipated Spring and Fall Warehouse Sales – stay informed by joining our mailing list!
