As CeCe was having a blast at the Balkan Invasion at SubT this past Friday, I was up the street at An Orange Moon, having a blast of mine own while snapping a few photos and checking out the opening party scene for a vintage and mod furniture and design store which recently moved into the long vacant former Working Bikes space at 2418 N. Western, just west of Western.
Lynn McDaniel and her husband, Ty, pictured, are the duo behind an Orange Moon, which relocated to the area from Gage Park. According to its website, An Orange Moon focuses on “…the Mid Century Modern period, we also offer Retro, Jet Set Modern, Industrial, French, Victorian, Steam Punk , Shabby Chic, Danish Modern, Art Deco, World Traveler, Mission and English pieces… Here you can also discover an awe-inspiring selection of vintage lighting, textiles, mirrors, art, home sand office accessories. Allow us to assist in creating your design adventure. Re-Mix & Re-Imagine your sanctuary…”
Sounds lovely, and whose space or life soundtrack couldn’t use a little remixing and re-imagining especially on a cold November morning full of freezing rain on the verge of becoming snow like this one? If your tastes lean toward Rockabilly over Pottery Barn, and you’re in the market for some furnishings to make you feel like you’re on the set of Mad Men as you’re watching it, head over to An Orange Moon to see everything we’re writing about for yourself, or just say ‘hi’ to West Bucktown’s newest new business!
On a side note, it was great to see so many of this writer’s former West Bucktown neighbors at the party, too, and thanks to Lynn for the invitation which came by postal mail and is always a quaint touch in these e-Times. Nearby West on North provided the nosh, too.
