post 27 este un magazin on line cu obiecte de mobilier si decoratiuni din chicago … locuinta din imagini apartine celor doi fondatori ai acestui magazin … stilul american de locuinte de duzina nu este pe placul meu deloc, cel mai mult ma deranjeaza decupajul nehotarat al peretilor … insa, aceasta locuinta prezinta cateva elemente interesante … care pot influenta in sensul bun al cuvantului.
[We live in a hundred year old “brick tank” bungalow in Berwyn IL, just shy of the Chicago city limits. We’re collectors who are inspired with spaces rich with books, texture, oddities and curiosities. Color also plays a big role, as well as unmatched or unexpected pairings of objects that feel bright but not overwhelming. Not to mention our love of art, we’re so lucky to have friends who are talented artists & designers whose work has made its way into our home. Many thanks to our team at Post 27, including, Margot Harrington for helping us make this peek happen! -Angela and Barkley]
[image above: The white “light sculpture” hanging above the sofa was made by one our long time friends, Steven Teichelman, who has a wood shop around the corner from our store. The rug is one of our favorite pieces, the blue and aubergine colors mixed with its simple patterning makes it one of our favorite antique shop finds. The collage is by another friend of ours, Chad Kouri of The Post Family and the Asterik stool upholstered in reused sailboat sails is by Roscoe Jackson – and is available through Post 27.]
[image above: A vintage danish teak credenza holds our wedding china that was handmade in Italy,which we patiently awaited 6 months for it to be produced. The bowl full of doorknobs was an eBay score, eventually, they’ll make their way onto all the doors in our house. You can also see a few issues of our biggest inspiration, Nest magazine, a collection which we covet the most.]
[image above: The upper floor is our master bedroom “suite” which is still under construction. Completing the bathroom was our first project. The black trim and wood grain was drawn by Angela with Krink markers (favorite graffiti markers). The wood grain floor has inspired new furniture pieces that will soon be available through Post 27.]
[image above: Our basement is an art studio where we paint and collage. We love to have friends over to make art, listen to old vinyl records, and sip vino. Also home to a completely restored 1960’s Ward’s Riverside Benelli that Barkley’s brother, Ash restored from ground up.]
