South Lobby Merchandise Mart Display

In July 2012, Kristin Taghon Interior Designs, previously Cadmium Interiors, was contracted to curate the Chicago Gift Market show in the Merchandise Mart. We also were asked to design a "Home Display" Vignette that paired Chicago Gift Market Accessories with furnishings from the Design Center of the Merchandise Mart.


We paired the following items from both the Chicago Gift Market Showrooms and the Design Center Showrooms.

  • Wallpaper by Kravet
  • Settee by Andre Arbus at Baker
  • Moroccan Rug by Matt Camron
  • Sophie Cocktail Table by George Smith
  • Putnam Round Nesting Tables by Morgan Richards Showroom
  • Anemone Lamp by George Smith
  • Moss Balls by Willow Group
  • Throw by White Ginger
  • Julia Knight Champagne Flute and Martini Shaker, candelabras and orange bowl by Samuelson Associates.


It was a stunning display that showed the personal taste of both owners of Cadmium Interiors. The vignette was full of unique textures, colors, and high quality furnishings.
