Summer’s prettiest color is a delicate whisper of blush pink! Found in clouds at sunset and petals on garden roses, we love this color on everything from a sofa and a silk blouse to a shiny lip gloss.

“The Gingko is a symbol of health, long life, strength and constancy. But it also has a delicacy. I have a ginkgo tree outside my bedroom, and wake up to the fluttering of those leaves most mornings. Sometimes the wind brings me a gift as a leaf flies in through an open window. I’ve tried to capture that sense of movement and fragility in metal.” -Michael Aram

Our block is among the most beautiful in Chicago. Lined with historic storefronts dating from 1870-1930, the Armitage-Halsted District in Lincoln Park was granted landmark status in 2002. Looking up, we are treated to corner turrets, bay windows, pressed metal cornices, terra-cotta ornaments, and brick and stone patterning in architecture unchanged from the Victorian era. The Armitage El station, just west of our shop, was opened in 1900 making it one of the oldest train stations in US history to be in continuous operation. Treelined cross streets are filled with stately brick row-houses and graystones. Our storefront at 934 W. Armitage opened in 1906 as Shinnick’s Drug Store. The original Armitage Hardware, across the street from Art Effect on Armitage and Bissell, operated as a prohibition era speak-easy and it’s rumored that Al Capone ran a tavern on the block.
Take a moment to appreciate the view and be inspired by our colorful history!
