Living Room Realty’s new exhibit, Objects in Space, will feature work by Studio Associate Professor Paul Pettigrew. The show, open June 22 – August 3, displays living spaces in a storefront gallery, and highlights locally sourced and produced furniture, textiles, and accessories. Pettigrew’s iCharnley, an iPod stereo system, will be included in the exhibit. The stereo was built into and around a single piece of quartersawn white oak fumigated in ammonium to match the patina of the Charnley House interior woodwork. The white oak came from Chicago's urban forest via Horigan Urban Forest Products.  For more information, visit: www.livingroomrealty.com
