Chicago will soon be home to not one but two locations of Canadian furniture store EQ3. The first opened in January just off Michigan Avenue in River North. The second showroom opens this summer in Lincoln Park in a former car wash space (really!).
EQ3 is known for its modern furniture and customizable sofa styles. Seasonal collections of gifts and accessories are also a draw. A few current favorites: Canadian designer Tom Chung’s Plank collection of storage units, sideboards and coffee tables, and the Nomad collection of woven Indian rugs.
“Chicago is well known for its rich and forward-thinking history in the realms of art, design and architecture,” says EQ3 creative director Thom Fougere. “That cultured perspective, alongside our shared prairie temperament, makes for a really nice fit.”
