LuxeHome — The Luxurious Shopping Experience
Luxury abounds at The Merchandise Mart’s new LuxeHome collection of 24 boutiques featuring the most recognized and respected high-end products for the home from around the world. The 90,000 square feet that make up LuxeHome is a showcase for the finest and newest concepts in kitchen, bath and home building.
It is open to the public and the trade Monday through Saturday.
This experience brings new meaning to the phrase “one stop shopping.” The consumer has a chance to see first hand the best of a range of styles for any given product offered. Walking through LuxeHome is like walking through a well-edited kitchen and bath magazine. The kitchen showrooms certainly highlight this. From traditional (Christopher Peacock Cabinetry and Clive Christian) to cutting edge European contemporary kitchens (Poggenphl U.S., Verenna Chicago by Poliform of Italy and Studio Snaidero Chicago) and everything in between. LuxeHome is a feast for the eyes. In the Snaidero Chicago showroom, the motto is “form follows function,” yet the form is artful, even sculptural and very impressive in its unique approach to kitchen efficiency.
The tile, stone and bath boutiques also make quite a nice showing at Luxehome. The latest trends in materials and their combinations are interestingly and artfully displayed. You can lose yourself in the cavernous Waterworks showroom with its comprehensive range of products from the bathtub to the towels that furnish the classic bathroom.
Many other building products are showcased such as wood and stone flooring, windows and doors, lighting, closets, and door and cabinetry hardware. Every boutique is well-planned and the experience of LuxeHome is a dream for consumers and designers alike. This new concept at The Mart promises to be a model for the design and architecture industry.
Whether you are just thinking about a home renovation or new construction project, or are in the midst of one, a trip through LuxeHome would be instructive. This new experience at The Mart also includes a schedule of events from special design shows to lectures by designers, authors and editors on specific design topics and trends.
