For the designer Marisa Gora of Kemora Landscape Designs, it's not enough for a garden or yard to be beautiful. It must also be functional, and it has to work with the natural environment it borders. It's no question that she holds her work to a high standard. But it's the way she surpasses even those standards that has earned her company awards from Angie's List, the Flower and Garden Show (which applauded Kemora's work on the American Girl Garden), and the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association.
Her business's mission to give beauty and function equal importance might have something to do with Marisa's background: she was pre-med at the University of Chicago when she decided to switch careers. Her love of drawing and previous work in landscape maintenance for the Wilmette Park District sparked the inspiration that eventually drew her to landscape design. After graduating and working in the industry, she founded Kemora, and today gives life to homeowners' design dreams.
Andersonville Kitchen & Bath's cabinetry craftsmen bedeck domestic living spaces with an array of handcrafted and customized sturdy wooden stuff keepers. Helpful and talented woodworkers will take on jobs both large and small, from adding one cabinet to your existing kitchen to fully outfitting a newly built ark galley. Carrying the latest brands from Merillat, Kraftmaid, and Silestone, Andersonville Kitchen & Bath ushers clients through all the stages of cabinetry conception, from an initial consultation and cabinet selection to project management and installation. While prices vary for each job, Groupon holders can use this $500 value to add one or two customized kitchen cabinets, primp up a powder room with a bathroom vanity cabinet, or make a dent in the renovation of a whole kitchen-cabinetry set. Open six days a week, Andersonville Kitchen & Bath also offers free design services and welcomes customers to stop by with sketches, dimensions, or condiment finger paintings of their existing space, from which its designers can plan.
Nadeau characterizes its furniture as "with a soul" because it's true artisan work: handcrafted from wood rather than mass-produced from gasket pylons. Showcase fine china and live gerbils in a mahogany regal glass-door cabinet ($372), or in a hefty, finely trimmed narrow bookcase with drawer ($197). Or, display a new moving picture box on a bobbin leg console table ($116). Furniture comes in a myriad of stains and colors, and many pieces are one-of-a-kind. Nadeau's ever-changing inventory includes a variety of sturdy dining room tables and chairs. Prices and selection may vary due to rotating inventory, but pieces are always fully assembled and ready to welcome any tuckered torso or mound of toothbrushes.
Cassona's owner, Alma Gutierrez, developed her eclectic furnishing sensibilities during cross-continental treks through Mexico, Peru, and Vietnam. The designs Alma encountered in remote artisan shops and markets dazzled her, re-forging her aesthetic sense into that of a bohemian tastemaker. Opening a carefully curated store allowed the consummate collector to satisfy her desire for discovering singular furnishings without drowning her own living space. Cassona, which takes its name from the Spanish word for mansion, boasts a sumptuous Andersonville location, where rustic, centuries-old furniture and home accessories sit alongside sleek, contemporary designs, each vying for customers’ attention with stories of their exotic origins, sought-after creators, and dreams of furnishing model-UN competitions.
