Design Within Reach has opened a 17,000-square-foot shop along Clybourn Corridor. At 755 West North Avenue, the space has taken over the upper level of a former Borders store. The studio is laid out in nine separate vignettes, each of which represents a "house" with its own bedroom, office, living room, and dining room. [The Chicago Tribune]
