7. Restaurateur’s Lush and Luxe Chicago LoftNate Chung and his cat, Rabbit, live in spacious condo in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood. When Chung isn’t lounging with Rabbit on one of the sofas, he’s usually in his dining room. “I love sitting at different seats at the dining table to read, do laptop work or play board games with my friends,” he says. The homeowner spent his childhood in Hawaii, and his collection of houseplants is a way to add a tropical touch to his Chicago home. “Unlike Hawaii, you actually have distinct seasons here,” he says. The plants are mostly from City Escape in Garfield Park and Orchids by Hausermann in Villa Park. Chung says his big, east-facing windows “pour in that gentle, bright sunshine that nourishes the plants, allows the cat to sprawl out and wakes me up each morning.”See Houzz guides to growing a lush indoor garden Read more about this home

When Chung isn’t lounging with Rabbit on one of the sofas, he’s usually in his dining room. “I love sitting at different seats at the dining table to read, do laptop work or play board games with my friends,” he says. The loft is close to a number of bars, parks and trails, restaurants and grocery stores, but in Chung’s words, “cramming” the dining table with friends is what he loves most. Above the table hangs a statement piece of a pendant.Aim pendant: Design Within Reach; Eames plastic side chairs: Vitra; Prouvé standard chairs: Design Within ReachBrowse dining tables
