Introducing The Line – Chicago

Photographed by Hanna Tveite

With its staccato skyline and breathtaking Lake Michigan views, Chicago pulses with energy yet radiates Midwestern charm, even during times of uncertainty and change. The Windy City is now home to The Line’s latest seasonal store: an immersive shopping experience in the heart of the city’s Gold Coast neighborhood, at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago. Enjoy a first look.

Placing fashion, home, and beauty items in the context of a home, the light-filled space is divided into discrete areas that offer room for relaxation—and discovery of would-be holiday gifts.
I adore Chicago. It is the pulse of America.Sarah Bernhardt

She is novelty; for she is never the Chicago you saw when you passed through the last time.Mark Twain
Having emerged as a global capital of gastronomy, Chicago offers plenty of delicious reasons to steer clear of the kitchen, but the space offers a thoroughly modern version stocked with urban essentials. A Gio Ponti mirror adds golden curves to a sea of sleek black lines.
In the closet area, a vintage Moroccan rug is the foundation for layered surfaces and textures, including a mirrored side table, a snowy sheepskin, and a velour felt hat.

Located at 11 East Walton Street (at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago), The Line – Chicago is open through January 31st, 2017.
Stop by Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
