Three’s a party

In the last few weeks, we’ve opened up two (2) new stores in Chicagoland, and one in Tysons Corner, Virginia! If you live, work, play, or otherwise exist in either of these places, we hope you’ll come say hi.


We’re loving our new home in the Gold Coast—it’s our second in Chicago after our first on W. Armitage—and the views of Lake Michigan in the neighborhood can’t be beat. The main attraction at our new store (besides the glasses, of course): two original murals of local landmarks, Willis Tower and the John Hancock Center, by the ever clever Jason Munn.

Our second new store in Chicagoland is just outside the city, at Oakbrook Center. Behind the Reference Desk, you’ll find a sprawling abstract mural by local illustrator Cody Hudson. (If you back up, squint, and cock your head a little, you might make out eyes, glasses, and books in it.). We’re so happy to have his energy in store.

And finally, our space at Tysons Corner features a mural by our good friend Maira Kalman. By the front doors, you’ll also spot our patented (O.K., not actually patented) reading positions wallpaper. Feel free to find a good book on our shelves, pick a position that suits you, and try it out on the comfy leather seating by the windows.
