Shopper’s Diary: @WorkDesign in Chicago

March 3, 2010

We love the philosophy of Chicago newcomer @WorkDesign. With more people melding living and working space, founder Julia Archer saw a need for a store focusing on furnishings, products, and supplies for the home work space. "Every item we sell, from a notebook to a desk, must be aesthetically appealing, make good functional sense, and offer sound value," she says. "It must maximize the use of space. It must be adaptable to different environments. And, of course, it must communicate clearly and boldly your appreciation of good design." As longtime fans of SCP, a UK company, we were thrilled to find several of their pieces among @WorkDesign’s appealing collection of products.
