As you might guess from the name, South Loop Loft began in owner Beth Berke's loft in Chicago's South Loop. Accustomed to buying and selling pieces due to frequent moves around the country, Berke fell in love with home decor through the process of furnishing her own home. Fast-forward to present day, and South Loop Loft has its own showroom on the Near West Side, serving Chicago's design novices and professionals alike. The 3,700-square-foot space offers home decor, accessories and furniture spanning all decades and price points. (We're talking from $15 up through the thousands.) Between the French antique fireplace mantel, stained glass windows, and velvet Chesterfield sofas, you'll never want to leave.
