An Orange Moon Uber Hip Vintage Furniture & Design

After announcing to her husband, Ty, in 2009 that she’d quit her teaching job to follow her passion for salvaging vintage furniture, Lynne McDaniel, owner of An Orange Moon, was a little nervous. Much to her surprise, Ty, enthusiastically shouted, “Do it!” A little over three years later, and after moving locations from the South Side to a much larger space in Bucktown, business is thriving. “In today’s lingo, sustainability means ‘keep it moving,’” asserts Ms. McDaniel. “If you really think about it, we’re affected on many levels by consumerism. An Orange Moon sustains by keeping our green promise through upcycling vintage furniture. Nowadays, if you want to help the planet, it’s imperative that you upcycle.” There’s always a beautiful display of handmade wood pieces. “Many of the woods used building vintage furniture are headed to the endangered species list, and we help by not only providing beauty and function, but by offering heirloom quality pieces.” The gorgeous new showroom is about to expand with its freshly curated English Garden outdoor space, where Ms. McDaniel will host “After Dark” events in the spring, summer and fall.
