Chicago + Jayson Home and Garden + Dream Sofa

The Chicago skyline from Grant Park

My guy and I were in Chicago last weekend...what an amazing time! In addition to checking out Lollapalooza (and catching fantastic sets from Radiohead, Gutter Twins, Steve Malkmus and Kanye West), we visited cool beer bars (in his opinion) and even cooler shops (in mine.)

Our view of Sunday night's headliner, Kanye West

Kevin's view of a delicious beer at The Map Room in Bucktown

Our view of Millenium Park on a hot and muggy night

My favorite place was Jayson Home + Garden, a gorgeous store in the Lincoln Park area with a huge and drool-worthly selection of furniture, accessories, floral, and decorative items. I discovered this sofa in the basement sale section:

God, if I had a room big enough for this piece it would definitely end up being the chicest family room ever. Sectionals are typically so....suburban. But this one is low and sleek, and the gray silk ikat upholstery is heaven. Just another beautiful thing we found in Chicago.
