Shop Stylings: Jayson Home

In my Shop Sylings posts, of which this is the third, I describe a visit to a Chicago home decor store and give you my impressions of it.  In case you missed my first two Shop Stylings posts, you can read about my trips to Chicago’s  Ralph Lauren and Restoration Hardware stores by clicking on the highlighted links.

Today, I am sharing a visit I made to a home store that is found only in Chicago—Jayson Home, located in the Lincoln Park neighborhood at 1885 N. Clybourn Ave. Jayson Home features furniture, home decor and accessories, lighting, rugs, and plants. The store sells new and antique furnishings from around the world. The mix of old and new global finds makes the store very appealing. For instance, you might see a two hundred year old French gilded bird cage on top of a contemporary lacquered mahogany desk with a vintage Louis XVI chair reupholstered in a modern tribal fabric. It is this striking juxtaposition of items that makes the Jayson Home shopping experience visually enjoyable. In addition, there are gorgeous fresh topiaries, airplants, succulent arrangements, and spring tree branches throughout the store, adding natural beauty and vibrancy to the displays.

Here are some photos of Jayson Home:



Outside the store is a garden section with outdoor plants for sale. The store’s loft-like interior, which has exposed brick walls and high ceilings, is full of items to purchase in artfully arranged displays.

I liked the rope in the display above. It turned out it was a vintage German rope that priced at $300—yikes!


I loved the gorgeous topiaries! The succulent displays, like the one below, were pretty incredible, too.DSC02928.JPG

I loved the pink printed pillows above.

Jayson Home is such an interesting store to visit—it is a feast for the eyes and full of unique treasures. Although it is generally expensive, and most of the items are completely out of my budget (my husband would not be happy if I spent $300 on a pillow or $4000 on a light fixture!), Jayson Home is a wonderful place to browse and a great source for design inspiration.

I hope you enjoyed this trip to Jayson Home!

  1. Thank you for the shopping tour of Jayson Home. I’m amazed at how this store has grown since we lived there 15 years ago. I’m curious about the succulent display featured on the lucite table. Are the succulents arranged on top of the table for display or permanently planted in a recessed area of the table? I’m seeing a lot of lucite in interiors and particularly like this display. Maybe this is an idea for a future post–I’d love to see you work your magic and research the use of lucite in design:)

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Maria! I loved the succulent display, too! The succulents are for sale individually, so the store’s floral designers can make you an arrangement or you can do one yourself. And thanks for the post idea — look for it soon!


  2. Makes me want to shop! It’s funny. I’ve heard of Jayson Home, even though it’s only based in Chicago. Perhaps I’ve seen their ads in House Beautiful magazine? Not sure, but I love their aesthetic!


    1. I think succulents do really well outdoors in the summer–even in Chicago! They need tons of light. I read that if you grow them indoors, make sure that they get at least 6 hours of sun per day, water them whenever the soil is dry, and put them in a pot that has drainage (I use terra-cotta pots). Good luck!


    1. Hi Dee, I was also very tempted by the cutting boards! They had some mini adorable wood boards called Verona paddles–I think you would use them for cheese, but they were so cute. So many tempting things–I have to stay away! Thanks for stopping by! Best, Elizabeth
