Mariette Himes Gomez Update

Mariette was recently featured by Architectural Digest in the February 2009 issue. The article "The Best of Everything" shared the way she meticulously took the Chicago home back to the bones and then updated it to fit the needs of the young family. This is the mark of a great designer - to respect the past yet make it modern for today. Click the link to enjoy the entire article.
Mariette has also been busy with a significant addition to her furniture collection by Hickory Chair. To be launched at the spring furniture market in High Point, NC in April, these exciting new pieces will be in stores in May! The Hickory Chair showroom is located in the IHFC building on the 8th floor.
