Francine Turk at Buckingham ID

Posted on Tue, 9 Nov 2010 by midcenturyjo

I love Julia Edelmann of Buckingham ID’s showroom. I want to move in. Park my slippers under that Swedish couch. I’m sure Julia would let me and now is the prefect time. Works by Chicago artist Francine Turk (you may have seen pieces on the set of the Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn movie “The Break-up”) are clustered salon style across the walls. Beautiful. So Julia when you least expect it you’ll find a strange woman (moi) draped across a chair drinking it all in. Chill the champagne. I’ll be over so.

It's absolutely incredible! I adore the eames chairs and Skouras chandelier- the picture wall is amazing- such a treat to look through- thanks for sharing this place- going right to inspiration folder!!

Can I move in too – those lanterns over the dining table…perfection!! Thanks for sharing this fabulous space!!

All of the artwork in our showroom is also for sale – the nudes, grave rubbings, and Matador series, all by Francine Turk, as well as the large-scale collages behind the conference table, which are by Kimberly Thurston. Both are local Chicago artists, whom we are so proud to include in our showroom! Please contact us with any questions!

Could you provide a price range for the smaller Francine Turk female nude pieces? I love them.

Thank you,
