House Tour: Artsy, Hip And Historic Home In The Loop

Name: Mary Visconti and Tom Caldwell
Location: the Loop — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 2,000 square feet
Years lived in: 4 — Owned

Mary and Tom’s laid-back, midcentury-influenced style makes the most of the building’s good bones and great views. The large picture windows that are the centerpiece of the unit are left unadorned and accented only by a cozy sitting area, while an Arco light ties together the open floor plan between the dining and living rooms. The couple, who work together from home writing grant proposals, are particularly skilled at arranging their various collections — there’s something interesting to look at no matter which way you turn from vintage radios to Tom’s paintings to Scandinavian glassware. When they moved in four years ago, they got rid of the worn furniture that had seen them through graduate school and began to focus on buying furniture and art they both love, from iconic chairs to quirky pillows. While they’re loyal customers of the upscale minichain Luminaire, they’re also great at scoring bargains, from backalley finds to vintage stores.
