The Essence of Taste: Chicago’s Top Interior Designers

08.10.2010

In French Ways and their Meanings, renowned author and keen social commentator, Edith Wharton, wrote, “The essence of taste is suitability.”  Luxury is not only in the ability to serve a purpose and serve it beautifully, but to fulfill personal needs, to be suitable for our lives.

This is the overarching goal of Neff of Chicago.  Chosen to design the kitchen in Merchandise Mart’s luxurious Dream Home, Neff is committed to not only providing the best quality, but the most intimate and personalized quality as well.  They design for their clients dazzling cabinetry that “reflects their own unique style and character.”  Neff of Chicago’s French provincial sensibilities capture the “essence” of taste, inspiring you to create your own vision of luxury.

Three Top Chicago Interior Designers

John Cannon's ability to blend styles helps him to create unique, luxurious interiors in homes around the country. According to Style Chicago, Designs by Cannon Frank “combine traditional and contemporary styles like Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Louis XV, Biedermeier, French Empire and Asian. His devotion to creating the finest space possible for his clients is exemplified in his philosophy, which is ‘to give the clients what they need, and take them ten paces beyond their goals.’”

This goal of customized luxury is a defining factor of another of Chicago’s premiere interior designers, AHA Designs.  Another award-winning firm, AHA Designs “transforms your wish list into inspiring rooms of discovery.”  In particular, the mother-daughter design team focuses on luxury items made by skilled artisans, including locally crafted glasswork and handmade lighting fixtures.  This meets the spiritual needs of a homeowner by providing pieces that are not only unique, but full of the flavor and identity of an individual and a community.

Style, substance, and sustainability are the driving forces behind one of Chicago’s best eco-friendly interior designers.  2 Point Perspective is committed to providing energy efficient design options using recycled and recyclable materials when possible.  The goal is to achieve maximum durability and to recognize the health needs of their clients.  From award-winning architectural designs, such as the Zero Energy Home in Oak Park to clean, luxurious interiors, 2 Point Perspective is a leader in the emerging green design industry.

From the use of recycled materials to Neff of Chicago’s Environmental Stewardship Program certification and commitment to providing healthy environments in their customized line of exquisite cabinetry, the essence of luxury today is suitability not only for our lifestyles, but for the planet as well.

These Chicago interior design firms all exhibit different design sensibilities; they do share a common bond, however, in creating decors that reinvent, celebrate, and update our ideas of luxury.
