alphab?tique [chicago + online]
alphab?tique, located in Chicago's Lincoln Park, was created in 2000 as an idea studio meant to inspire and add beauty; a place of "ah" for those obsessed with paper products (like me). Since many paper designers started to print their designs onto pillows, wall hangings, and ceramics, alphab?tique soon started carrying items for the home. They carry Neisha Crosland's wallcoverings and silk pillows, items from Designers Guild, Pancake + Franks cards, Hable Construction's pillows and tote bags, and Lotta Jansdotter's wall hangings, ceramics and textiles. alphab?tique offers online shopping, too. However, their retail space offers a much more extensive array of products, so the next time you're in the windy city, allow the breeze to carry you over to all that is beautiful in alphab?tique.
Now I know my alphab?tique, this time won't you shop with me...
