Photographer Peter Furla sees a potential shot wherever he looks. To him, the "L" stop at Randolph and Wabash is a backdrop for an engagement photo. One of Chicago's old, time-worn buildings is the perfect spot for a newly married couple—still clad in tuxedo and gown—to pose for their wedding photos. Or maybe the photographer stays in-studio, allowing himself complete control over every shot. It's in the studio that he often creates portraits for children and families.
Peter Furla developed a creative eye at an early age thanks to his father, who originally opened Furla Photography in 1945—a family owned operation in business for two generations. Peter started working alongside his father in 1978, and he hasn't stopped snapping photos since. His work has led to numerous awards and features in well-known publications.
As a complement to Peter Furla's photography, Chris Chibucos runs FurlaVision, the studio's video arm. Mr. Chibucos and his team—who have won their own fair share of accolades—shoot and edit high-definition footage of weddings and special events. The result is a finished product as stylish and panoptic as a documentary film.

In 1908, Madison and State became the numerical zero-markers of Chicago’s new street system, making the corner where they intersected the new epicenter of city commerce. On nearby Wabash Avenue, the company jumped into the furniture game the same year, selling home furnishings built by skilled local craftsmen. More than 100 years later, the shop still buzzes with that original energy, connecting customers with the finest home furnishings from more than 50 manufacturers. The fourth-generation family business has migrated from the city center to five suburban locales, where showrooms display gleaming hardwood tables, towering entertainment centers, and elegant leather couches. Along with accent pieces and kid-centric design items, each Toms-Price location also offers special services such as furniture refinishing, reupholstering, and moving help. On-staff interior designers can also lend their eye to design projects, artfully arranging rooms and selecting the color schemes, fabrics, and wax doll heads that best bring out the inner you.
