#driehausmuseum - beautiful house from the gilded age of Chicago. Worth a visit
Which one is your favorite? I stared at this statue for like thirty minutes trying to figure out the best angle and I'm still not sure which one is the best. Maybe the answer to that is subjective.
Chicago just never stops giving I recommend a museum tour to all, a modernist exhibit about the colonial narrative and remaking a dark history into something beautiful is being hung now, I can’t wait to check it out  #cupidandpsyche #driehausmuseum #chicago ##chicagophotographer #chicagohousemiseums #chicagogram #sculpturelover #stainedglass #travelchicago
I love the little courtyard nestled behind St. James Cathedral and have often wandered by the @driehausmuseum, yet another of the stately historic homes of Chicago. This miniature portrait features the lovely Driehaus Museum which dates to 1883. 🏑 ♥️

Today we stray a little from actual food to my real love, table settings. Here the dining room at the Richard M Driehaus museum is set for a Christmas meal. I love house museums and Driehaus's restoration of the late 19th-century Nickerson Mansion is a treasure. 13/365 A Year of Foodiegrams #foodie #foodies #foodiesofinstagram #foodiegram #365photochallenge #365foodphoto #driehausmuseum
This stopped me in my tracks when my eyes fell upon it. The shell base, which can serve as a vase for flowers, can be separated from the restrained, yet stylish lamp. Honestly, I'd never seen anything quite like it. Tiffany Studios, Nautilus Shell Centerpiece Lamp, ca. 1910. The @driehausmuseum has a particularly strong & diverse Tiffany collection. #itweetmuseums #driehausmuseum #tiffanylamp #nautilusshell
Got a little obsessed with this wallpaper. Looks totally different depending on how the light is hitting it. It's leopards in trees. But there also seems to be a keyhole. . . #wallpaper #leopards #decorativearts #driehausmuseum

I consider bathrooms off limits for photo taking, as a general rule. Made an exception at #driehausmuseum, though. Apparently, the “crapper” brand became synonymous with.... 🚽 🚽 🚽
This is an old folding “campaign” chair I repaired a few years ago.  Made in the late 1800’s by Hunzinger in Brooklyn, it’s an early example of ornate production furniture. It arrived in my shop needing major surgery; a new arm, leg, finial, work repairing the crest rail, and new upholstery. I turned and carved the new parts, the late Turning Leaf Crafters did an excellent job fulfilling the client’s request for simple, sturdy upholstery.  Last summer, in an American chair exhibit at the Driehaus Museum in Chicago, I got to see a couple of pristine examples of other Hunzinger designs.  Check them out! #hunzinger #finewoodworking  #furniturerestoration  #driehausmuseum
This particular #tiffanylamp is so where with it's Nautiluses? Nautili? Are they cup holders? Are they ash trays? WHAT IT'S HAPPENING!? #driehausmuseum #chicago #decorativearts
I'm a bit of a sucker for decorative tile work, and these Moorish-inspired geometric stunners by the Low Art Tile Works company in the Smoking Room of the @driehausmuseum are definitely home decor goal-worthy. #itweetmuseums #decorativetiles #driehausmuseum
Looking forward to our upcoming event at the @driehausmuseum 4/11 featuring John Pinto on Piranesi. . . . . #piranesi #chiarchitecture #icaachicago #gildedage #nickersonmansion #driehausmuseum
It's a new year, but our next featured project looks at a historic masterpiece: The Driehaus Museum. Celebrating its 100th anniversary, the former Nickerson Mansion was saved from destruction when Chicago citizens bought the historic home in 1919. Nearly 85 years later, Bulley & Andrews helped transform it into The Richard H. Driehaus Museum @driehausmuseum. . Learn more at https://www.bulley.com/projects/the-richard-h-driehaus-museum/.
The glass dome ceiling in the Nickerson Mansion/ #driehausmuseum attributed to the Studio of Giannini and Hilgart. It would be delightful to lounge in this room. . . . #chicago #architecture #stainedglass #artglass #indoorbeauty
One of the surprises that you stumble upon when visiting the @driehausmuseum in Chicago is this joyful stained glass dome at the far end of the house. It's 1901 design is attributed to the Studio Giannini & Hilgart. #itweetmuseums #alwayslookup #driehausmuseum #stainedglass
I believe this is called low fire tile. It's beautiful.  #driehausmuseum #chicago #ceramics #tiles #nickersonmansion #architecture #museums #islamicinspired
Entrance hall atrium; Samuel M. Nickerson house, Chicago. Burling and Whitehouse - 1883  #chicago #chiarchitecture #archi_ologie #oldhouse #oldhouselove #victorianinterior #marble #driehausmuseum #burlingandwhitehouse #1883
I'm working at the @driehausmuseum this week. Upon arrival, I was thrilled to see how they used a detail of the stunning portrait by Théobald Chartran of James Hazen Hyde, 1901, as their façade banner for the @nyhistory exhibition "Beauty's Legacy." This portrait was clearly created with a strong hat-tip to Bronzino, Portrait of a Young Man with a Book, ca. 1540 in the permanent collection of @metmuseum. #itweetmuseums #driehausmuseum

Holiday stop at the Driehaus Museum at Erie and State, Chicago. Their shop is adorable and has lots of unique gifts.  A membership would also make a good gift. . #chowdownaroundtown #holidaymood #christmasinchicago #whattodoinchicago #holidaydecor #chicago  #staycation #visitchicago #shopsmall #driehausmuseum #museum #historichome #winterwonderland
I’ll never stop loving all the minute details in refined historic places like this lamp post of (brass? Bronze? Not sure?) geese on one of the staircases at the #driehausmuseum. If you think about it, people had more capacity to notice/ admire details like this because there weren’t as many forms of stimulus and activity consuming their head space. I will always look for #interiordesigndetails

We went to the Richard H. Driehaus Museum today which was the beautiful Chicago Gilded Age home of Samuel M. Nickerson. It was completed in 1883 and many of the original furnishings are still in place. So very beautiful and so fun to imagine it in the time of the Chicago World’s Fair and, of course, H. H. Holmes!  #nickersonmansion #driehausmuseum #chicago #whitecity #devilinthewhitecity #hhholmes #gildedage #chicagoworldsfair #architecture #design
