Stories of small business owners across America comes to life in new movement championed by Deluxe Corporation
Chicago, Ill. Feb. 18, 2014 – Today, a mini-documentary featuring An Orange Moon (AOM) and the businesses of West of Western (WOW) was released as part of the Small Business Revolution campaign. The Small Business Revolution is a movement designed to shine light on the power and energy behind American small businesses.
Part of Deluxe Corporation’s 100th anniversary year, the Small Business Revolution is highlighting 100 small businesses from across the country throughout 2015. Businesses were nominated by Deluxe employees and the general public.
An Orange Moon is the second business to be featured in the mini-documentary campaign, featuring Lynne and Ty McDaniel of AOM, focusing not only on the unique story of their furniture and design business, but on their overall effort to create a business movement in their neighborhood. The documentary debuted during a premier showing at An Orange Moon on Feb. 17.
“The documentary really captures the spirit and enthusiasm of our community and how so many small businesses are helping to forge a new path for this area,” Lynne McDaniel said. “We were thrilled to be part of this effort and can’t wait for other small businesses around the country to see our story. This is a great project.”
Deluxe commissioned award winning filmmakers and photojournalists to capture the rich tapestry of compelling and unique stories that make up the small business experience. Flow Nonfiction of Austin, TX is directing and producing this distinctive effort that will come to life in real time throughout the year.
“The Small Business Revolution is truly an authentic effort to start a movement to celebrate small businesses across the country,” said Amanda Brinkman chief brand and communications officer for Deluxe. “We chose An Orange Moon because they have an exceptional story, Lynne and Ty not only pursued their passion but in doing so have made a significant impact in their community.”

An Orange Moon

Vintage Mid Century Modern chair designed by Ty & Lynne McDaniel.

Chair name:

"Letters" by Gunnar Aagaard Andersen, designed in Denmark in 1955. 

"Color, texture, funtion, design. An uber-hip salute to a subtle but cool work of "mid century modern art."

Since you asked. This is the Steve Madden boot I wore for this event. Below is a mainstay from my closet, an 80's leather "Biker" jacket. I purchased it new in the 80's. Timeless cool.

La Chaise Lounge Chair by Charles and Ray Eames

Isn't she a beauty? And besides being a sculptural gem, its really very comfortable! Charles and Ray Eames designed La Chaise in 1948 for a competition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, inspired by ''Floating Figure'', a sculpture by Gaston Lachaise. It is the unbelievable elegance of this assertive seating sculpture that enables any number of sitting and reclining positions, which is so very appealing. It has long since established itself as an icon of organic design. They were truly ahead of the times!

Manufactured by Vitra, one of the preeminent names in European furniture.
Overall Height - Top to Bottom: 34.25 Inches
Overall Width - Side to Side: 59 Inches

An Orange Moon Vintage Furniture Shop Turns 5 Years Old!!!!!

Lynne & Ty McDaniel

Can you believe it? WE ARE FIVE YEARS OLD! Do you remember the space in the photo below?? It was on the South side of Chicago, back in 2009. It had pale green walls and painted white floors, so quaint, warm and welcoming. Now add a treasure trove of Mid Century Modern furniture, great jazz and tequila and poof!, An Orange Moon! We loved it there! 

Our old location on 59th street.

So many people, parties, tequila and the furniture! O.M.G. 
Wait, I'm getting ahead  of myself. You all know the story of how we came to be? Well, Ty McDaniel, my husband and vintage furniture Guru, suggested we leave our careers as Clinicians and open a  vintage furniture shop. I didn't have to think twice! With a background in Antiques, courtesy of my mom, a graduate of 
Ray-Vogue, and Ty's killer eye, we were on our way to Herman Miller heaven!
Then we found this space on North ave.
Pretty rough huh?

Before at new location

After at new location

A peek inside the AOM crash pad.
Here's the TIMEOUT CHICAGO link.

Please allow us to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU. 
Come by and have a shot of tequila while shopping at the hippest Mid Century Modern furniture store in Chicago! Listen to the cool stylings of Ty McDaniel on the virtual 1's & 2's and me wiggling and giggling! Why? 'Cause I'm HAPPY.
