I love the 30’s to 40’s art deco era, as far as the fashion, old Paris, Art Deco lighing, Eddie Murphy in Harlem Nights…ok the last one was a stretch. But seriously the ward Swag was invented in the 40’s. You could not visit the grocery store with out tassels and a cloche!

Everthing was glamor!

A throwback to this kind of Glam in Chicago is the Pump Room. Re-opened and re-designed you can still see those subltle hints of that old glamor. If you’re missing that feeling of the 40rs they have kept images ¬†of its stars that crossed its threshold, nicely hung on a wall in the lounge.

The lighitng is really cool too!

What do you think Chicago; are you interested in visiting its icon? Again if anything, I had to go just to get a glimpse of that lighting installation – Who thought of that?!


Many Blessings!
