Mi Caza, Su Caza
I’m currently loving one of Milwaukee Avenue’s newest home décor destinations: Caza (1459 N. Milwaukee; 773-227-7774). It opened at the end of July and is sort of like a vintage department store with a boutique vibe. They do have clothing, but I think the real gems are the furniture and home accessories. The owners have filled it with a curated mix of Southwestern, Scandinavian, and Art Deco items. Some of the best pieces include a large navy and bronze brocade mid-century sectional sofa, shown here, a pair of wood-slat pub chairs with iron bases designed by Arthur Umanoff, a vintage 1930s film projector that still works, and an awesome collection of vintage salt and pepper shakers.
