About Us

Established in 1989 by Douglas Van Tress and Chauwarin Tuntisak, The Golden Triangle began by selling artifacts and antiques from just one country - Thailand. Over the years, the store expanded its offerings to include antiques from all over Asia and more recently, Europe. In 2006, The Golden Triangle launched its own modern collection hand-crafted from salvaged hardwoods. Today, the store's inventory is richly eclectic --a unique blend of ancient and modern, rustic and refined that transcends chronological and national boundaries.

In 2007, The Golden Triangle moved to a 23,000 square foot gallery just north of the Chicago River. The challenge was to create a display environment as unique as the store's inventory. Under Tuntisak's art direction, what was once a cavernous warehouse was transformed into an archiectural "village" with authentic building facades arranged around an Asian treelined court yard. Moving through the block-long store, the visitor passes through distinct architectural and historical zones --a British Colonial veranda house, a serene courtyard, a Chinese scholar's house and a modern wing housing pieces from all periods and places.

The architectural vignettes have a dual purpose: to show the beauty and function of each piece and to show how they can be used in a modern home. Though it is helpful to see a store’s inventory online, Antiques are tactile things. Wood, stone and ceramic and glass engender distinct feelings and impressions that cannot be fully recorded in a photo. Likewise, the multi-dimensional patina that develops on the surface of a piece is difficult to capture. The owners confess to being a little old-fashioned; they hope you find the website interesting and informative but that they have a chance to meet you in the store, face-to-face as you begin your collecting and decorating adventure.
