Smart Framing for the Museum of Science and Industry

The Smart Home at the Museum of Science and Industry is the Greenest Home in Chicago! It is open to the public until January 8, 2012.

The Smart Home was designed by the Museum in collaboration with Andersonville's Scout. The industrial and Chicago themed art throughout the home was custom framed, as seen in these photos, by Foursided.

Look It Up, Old School Style

Prove to your friends how smart and hip you really are with Pictorial Webster's Visual Dictionary ($35). This beautifully illustrated hardcover book makes a great resource for everyday questions like.. what does a cabrilla fish look like? Or how many legs does a ladybug have? Seriously, it's way better than Googling it.

Map It

Not to brag... but we have an awesome collection of vintage maps (in array of sizes & styles) for sale. Cuba, Maryland, Africa... you name it and we (probably) have it. So come by and pick one out for your very own wall.
