When Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams opened a signature store in Oak Brook Center more than three years ago, the goal was to become a destination for people who seek comfortable, yet elegant, furniture pieces designed to fit into your home at any stage of life. And oh have they achieved that, and then some. With autumn now upon us and our October Home & Design issue finally here, we reached out to the team to see what was new and fresh this season. Immediate obsession ensued as the sleek, curvy and oh-so-sculptural Marcello sofa emerged. With a bowed front, tight back, and seat accented with double-needle stitching, there’s a lot to love about this modern piece (and all the accessories that go with it). Customize one for yourself at the Oak Brook showroom. Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams is located at 15 Oakbrook Center in Oak Brook, 630-288-7020, mgbwhome.com.
