Trainor Design Center
My husband sometimes accompanies me to showroom openings, various design events, and parties. So when he told me that the spouse of his haircutter was throwing a bash to celebrate the opening of his showroom, of course I was in. Trainor Design Center, located on Lake Street, focuses on all things glass—sliding doors, backsplashes, countertops, stairs, walls that kids can write on. I liked the colored glass-fronted cabinets like the red one shown here. It was fun to see all the applications for glass, and to finally meet the woman who helps make my curly-headed man so handsome.
