Design Hunter | Chicago Botanic Garden Antiques Fair

Happy Monday!  Despite the cold weather, the weekend couldn't have been more lovely and as usual, it went by too quickly.  On Saturday I woke up bright and early and  made the short trek up north to the Chicago Botanic Garden Antiques Fair.   My mom and I spent several hours walking around more than a hundred booths including one of my favorites T. J. Antorino above.  Before I share what I bought, I thought I would give you the highlights of the show.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
A lovely Neoclassic collection in Alessandra Branca's booth.  I was tempted to pack up the entire table setting - including the Bagues ship chandelier- and bring it home with me.  Stunning, right?
I was seriously considering purchasing this zebra hide from Bleeker Street Antiques — I love the rich toffee color.
