Shopper’s Diary: Haymaker in Chicago

Izabella Simmons November 09, 2011

I recently had a chance to stop by The Haymaker Shop, located in the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago, which exemplifies a new generation of home goods stores focusing on local design. The owner, Arrin Williams, envisioned a creative ecosystem that represents the work and spirit of designers; everything in the store is produced by designers and artists in Chicago and the Midwest and showcases Williams' love of craftsmanship. For more information, go to The Haymaker Shop.

Above: Silk-screened posters for an Andy Warhol exhibition, "The Cow of Mr. Warhol," designed by Legendre and Rutter; $84 each. The chair was made by ReBuilding Exchange from wood salvaged from Chicago tear-downs. The white-washed reclaimed wood and steel chair was made by Chicago-based Whitney Gaylord.

Above: Screen-printed Chicago "El" pillows by Zerobird; $40 each. Gold antlers by Haymaker owner Arrin Williams; $75 for the pair.

Above: Screen-printed Chicago posters, inspired by the Carl Sandburg poem, Chicago, by Know Your Flag; $30 each. The two tables are by New Breed Furniture Network. Along the wall are vintage saws, painted in bright colors by Williams; $40 each.
