About Us

Located just blocks from Michigan Avenue, The Golden Triangle is one of Chicago's largest home furnishings stores and a national resource for fine Asian and European antiques.

Established in 1989 by Douglas Van Tress and Chauwarin Tuntisak, The Golden Triangle originally sold artifacts and antiques from just one country - Thailand. Over the years, the store expanded its offerings to include collectables from all over Asia and increasingly, Europe. Since 2006, the store has featured modern furnishings made from reclaimed exotic hardwoods as well as contemporary Chicago-made case goods and upholstered sofas and chairs. The store's inventory is richly eclectic --a satisfying blend of ancient and modern, rustic and refined that transcends chronological and national boundaries.

The most distinctive aspect of the store is its physical layout and design. Under Tuntisak's art direction, what was once an 18,000 square-foot warehouse along the Chicago River was transformed into an architectural "village" complete with authentic building facades arranged around a tree-lined interior court yard. Moving through the nearly block-long space, 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 and reward direct inspection. Wood, stone and ceramic and glass engender distinct feelings and impressions that cannot be fully recorded in a photo. Likewise, the rich patina that develops on the surface of a piece is difficult to capture electronically. As interesting and informative as you may find the website, the owners do hope to meet you in person, face-to-face, as you begin your collecting and decorating adventure.

A final note: in addition to being an antique store for collectors, The Golden Triangle is a deep resource for individuals that simply love beauty and want to surround themselves with quality furniture and art that offers lasting satisfaction. One friend of the store described it as "a furniture store disguised as an antique store" due to the high level of practicality found in most of the pieces. And as a furniture store in Chicago, The Golden Triangle offers a host of services to make the buying experience pleasant and enjoyable. The store ships anywhere, can modify pieces according to customer need, convert objects into lamps, reupholster, refinish, restore, mount and frame as needed. Design assistance is also available for those who want to confidently decorate rooms or whole houses.
