Kind of Obsessed With: 42 Pressed – Abigail Nora

I was poking around Foursided (one of my favorite shops in Chicago) when I saw it. Propped up innocently against a stack of other prints, a gorgeous foil-pressed map of Chicago in delicate, modern black and white patterns. It was love at first site.

Then I found out that the print was by the same girl who does the Roam candles. They all smell like different cities! It’s great! Although saying Chicago smells like “cucumber, basil, moss and wet stone” seems pretty generous – but no one wants “dirty river water and urine” in a candle. The Chicago scent is kind of perfect for a kitchen, actually.

West Elm sells the New York, Charleston and San Francisco variants online, but it looks like you have to either shop in-person or go to 42 Pressed’s online shop to get the Chicago version. If you’re in the area, I’ve seen it at Foursided (along with that gorgeous, amazing print) and Anthropologie.

Speaking of that print… I need it in my life. It would look so perfect above my couch. Fancy yourself more international? The shop just launched Paris and London prints in the collection, as well. Shop them all here.
