INDUSTRIAL CHIC

It’s every homeowner’s dream: to create a place in which each room is inviting and artfully arranged. When the husband and wife owners sought a counterpoint to their suburban residence, they found a four-story townhouse in downtown Chicago with full-on river views that seemed the ideal home for achieving their goals. But their vision for how they wanted to live there proved more difficult to realize than expected.


“We’d found a home that we loved and renovated it in the industrial loft style that we loved, but when we began to furnish it something didn’t feel right,” the husband recalls. “The dots were not connecting.”


Enter interior designer Michael Del Piero, whose work was recommended to the couple for her distinctive style that melds strong shapes, salvaged surfaces, and elegant details, evident both in the homes of her clients as well as in her Chicago shop, Michael Del Piero Good Design. In short, hers was an aesthetic that seemed ideally suited to this particular space that had been designed by project architect Michael Abraham and an earlier interior designer, Megan Arity.
