We’ve just announced the lineup for the popular Studio Tours at HOW Design Live in Chicago. The morning and afternoon tour sessions always sell out quickly, and they give conference-goers a tour of some of the coolest creative workspaces in the city. It’s a great source for ideas and inspiration for your own office. A HUGE thanks to these shops for being part of the event!
