The 12th DreamHome, an annual installation that showcases the work of six of Chicago’s top interior design firms, will open April 14 in the Design Center at the Merchandise Mart. The firms will each transform a single room using furnishings that are only sourceable at the Design Center showrooms on floors 6, 14, 15 and 16.
