“The River North Design District brings consumers to the best showrooms in the country to have an up close and personal experience with various unique designs and products.”
-Mike Cao, Casa Spazio
The River North Design District, founded in 2013, is a local community that boasts interior design offerings that are accessible to both designers and consumers. The showrooms carry everything from lighting, tile, plumbing, rugs, kitchens to furnishings- everything one needs to create a one-of-a-kind haven. The participating showrooms pride themselves on providing a shopping experience that is both unique and personalized. Each showroom is located on street level, which allows customers to stroll along and enjoy the neighborhood. Many of the showrooms are pet friendly and all welcome children.
