Indie 38 Member, Design Harvest is once again blowing up West Grand, bringing the best local makers and collectors of design objects for an aesthetic feast. This year, in its 3rd appearance, the annual street fest showcases the wide spectrum of design disciplines, bringing them together in a stylish and accessible manner.
Find Chicago's best local furniture and home accessory makers, vintage and antique collectors, and leading local retailers in the home design industry. The two-day program consists of tented vignettes, or "little stores," each boasting unique themes and products for sale, and juried exhibitions. It all goes down the weekend of September 29-30.
Each of the following shops, studios or artists brings a different flavor to the pot. For your palatable pleasure we've linked up some of these guys. Click through to their sites to get a flavor of the harvest.
