If you haven't been to see Luminaire's new concept space on the second floor of their River North design mecca, right now would be the time to do it. Why? Next Thursday LuminaireX, the ever-evolving, experimental community which boasts far more affordable products than what Luminaire is known for is having its launch party. It's only been a few weeks since the space has started to welcome tricked out bikes from J.C. Lind Bike Co. and designs from Katrin Schnabl as well as shoes, chairs, books and more. In that short time a new type of customer has been seen shopping at the store, proving that Luminaire's new direction in design is in fact accessible.
At the event LuminaireX will present two more food-focused partners in the LuminaireX experience. The first is a healthy DIY delivery company Madison and Rayne from Melanie Mityas and Josh Jones of Spring restaurant and Popcorn Asylum which creates surprising combinations of flavors like beer, vanilla, cocoa and lemon that redefine the popcorn experience. For more information about the event or to RSVP email the showroom.
