Furniture store set to bring luxury to River West

Last week’s news that hip grocer Fox & Obel may come to the northeast corner of Wabash Avenue and Roosevelt Road in the South Loop excited a lot of people.

So we’re wondering what you think of the decision by Kohler Co. Interiors Group’s to open a flagship store at 825 W Chicago Ave, according to a Crain’s article. According to our boundaries, that’s in River West.

The store, which specializes in high-end furniture, plans to open in the fall in a former art gallery. The article suggests that more retail is needed in the area.

Lee Ross, manager of business development for Kohler Interiors, told Crain’s, “We are very much open to the idea of doing some pioneering, and being a catalyst to retail development in the area.”
