MADE IN CHICAGO at The Golden Triangle
April 06, 2012 by
MADE IN CHICAGO was a terrific success. Over 250 guests mingled with local artists, interior designers, furniture makers, and members of the media. For The Golden Triangle, it was the first time the store had emphasized local, Chicago-made products and blended them in with Asian and European antiques. The result was an original and stimulating combination of elements that attracted much favorable comment.
The full show will be up for just three weeks, but Chicago-made furniture and art will be a part of the store's inventory from now on.

Lutes and Lanterns
March 06, 2012 by AP
The Chinese celebrate the New Year with lavish dinners, firecrackers, and red lanterns. The Lantern Festival marks the last day of the Lunar New Year celebrations and announces the start of spring. For one night, The Golden Triangle's Lutes & Lanterns transported guests into an aristocrat’s private courtyard where they enjoyed a night of refined entertainment.
Kerry Leung played a classical Chinese lute- an instrument in use for over 1000 years. Molly Pan read Chinese poetry. Judy Zhu performed an ancient sleeve-tossing dance. On the lighter side, guests had their tea leaves read, noshed on savory Chinese hors d’oeuvres and sipped a selection of French white wines. Notable attendees included the consuls general of Thailand and Belgium, as well as Michael Kutza, President of the Chicago International Film Festival. Partial proceeds from Lutes and Lanterns went to the Thai Red Cross, aiding victims of the recent floods in Thailand.
Grid/Block Art Project
February 22, 2012 by AP
This is a custom art project constructed of a 6" x 3" panel and made from Colonial-era printer's trays found in Burma. The piece is integrated with modern wooden blocks- an "antique of the future" hand-crafted in The Golden Triangle's own workshop.
Refurbished and Resilient.
February 21, 2012 by AP
This item is an all-original, early 19th century Chinese painting table that withstood years of rough use and harsh conditions. Although it was in need of a little repair, the repairs were minor and comparatively easy to make given the great age of the piece. Note the burn mark of incense on the end.
Doug VanTress found the antique in Burma and brought it as is to Chicago without any repairs done in China. He wanted to personally supervise the restoration in the U.S., saving the challenge (and fun!) for our Chicago refurnishing team. The only work this piece needed was strengthening the joints, cleaning, French-polishing and waxing.
