It was a desire to do something of her own and a passion for designing spaces that led Claire Tibbs to open Humboldt House, a vintage and modern home shop appropriately nestled in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood. The shop stocks furniture, jewelry, and lifestyle goods, from barware to apothecary products. Tibbs travels far and wide for her selections, as showcased by the shop’s statement pieces like wall-mounted bullhorns and smoked glass geometric coffee tables.

A woman named Claire runs Humbolt House, and she has such a great eye. She sources a lot of vintage, beautiful furniture that they refinish. She also has a lot of cool decorations for the house. It’s kind of a Southwestern Native American feel, but it’s very midcentury modern at the same time.
