5. South Loop Loft
Described as a staple in the Chicago design scene by Elle Decor, River West’s South Loop Loft sells modern furnishings and decor hand-selected from around the globe. Despite this, it’s definitely not one of the best places to shop if you’re short on funds. However, it’s perfect for that one-time splurge. With jaw-dropping pieces like the French Lucite Table designed by Michel Dumas in the 1970s, it’s a great place to seek some design inspiration. Another standout piece is the Travertine Dining Table in the style of Mario Bellini. It has three column-shaped legs and a timeless natural finish.

7. Dial M for Modern
Arguably one of the best vintage furniture stores in Chicago, River West’s Dial M for Modern constantly updates their selection of mid-century styles.
