It’s been seven months since the cool home furnishings shop Thomas + Henry (1445 N. Wells) opened in Old Town, so we thought we’d check in and see how they were doing.
The hair salon in the back is now up and running (call 312-337-1445 for an appointment) and the shop portion is full of fun new gifts and accessories. One of my favorites are these exclusive-to-the-store pillows made by fashion photographer Kenneth Zane (he’s shot for Elle, Vogue, Ralph Lauren, and more).
To make these, Zane photographed dogs in wigs (including a bulldog with a geisha bun and an Italian greyhound with punk blue hair) and then silkscreened them onto cotton or linen. The 17-inch-square pillows are then finished off with leather trim.
Each design is limited to 150 pillows, so if you see one you like, snatch it up!
