Business and Marketing Entrepreneur Cary A. Filsinger teams with Chicago designer and custom furniture manufacturer Scott Arthur Yerkey to create a multi-line showroom and art gallery FILSINGER CHICAGO on the 18th floor of the world-famous Merchandise Mart Design Center. The new showroom opened September 12, 2007 and is the design professional's ultimate resource for luxury furniture, fabrics, lighting, antiques, accessories and artwork.
Previously, Cary Filsinger and Scott Yerkey successfully established two Chicago-based design businesses: Scott Arthur Yerkey Design, Inc, and Scott Arthur Yerkey Furniture, Inc. Cary Filsinger has nearly 25 years marketing and public relations experience. Scott Yerkey is known for his beautiful and timeless interiors as well as his custom "classic" to "contemporary" furniture lines. His custom designs successfully transition antiques or reproductions with that of the finest contemporary furniture.
What sets this showroom apart from the other showrooms, in addition to the new product offerings is the one-of-a-kind modern and antique original artwork, lighting and accessories and genuine fossils. "We are excited to be the first design showroom in the country to offer the finest in natural fossil art and murals as well as fossil stone products from Green River Stone Company", stated Cary Filsinger. "By unearthing stone deposited 50 million years ago and extracted by hand from Fossil Lake in Wyoming's Green River Valley, we produce individual fossil specimens, artistic murals, and other stone products for museums, private collections, interior designers and architects. Our new relationship with Filsinger Chicago provides us with an opportunity to display our fossil murals and product in the setting they are primarily designed," noted Green River Stone Company partner Doug Miller. Fossil stone extracted from the historic freshwater lake includes palm leaves, turtles, rays, and a variety of fish.
Product offerings at FILSINGER CHICAGO range from traditional to contemporary. The showroom includes a number of premier lines, including Chicago-based Scott Arthur Yerkey Furniture, Saki Taylor Mirror Collection and the Los Angles-based furniture line Hamilton Inc. The showroom also features John Strauss Furniture Design, ESTUDIO, custom painted furniture from Hammer Design; Formax lighting from Europe; the Bradford Upholstery Collection; Tressé Textiles; window treatments from Total Window; original paintings and contemporary art and prints from around the world; as well as antiques and one-of-a-kind accessories known as Filsinger Tour, including chandeliers and case goods found throughout Cary Filsinger's and Scott Yerkey's travels. "FILSINGER CHICAGO represented an opportunity to bring new product offerings to Chicago. We showcase some of the most unique and beautiful furniture, lighting and original art the industry has to offer," states partner Cary Filsinger.
In addition to the wide product offerings featured in the new showroom, FILSINGER CHICAGO's expert staff serves the design industry with creativity and efficiency, offering elegant solutions to every design situation, whether it's help finding lighting, artwork or a specific custom designed piece or help with an entire design project. FILSINGER CHICAGO also includes an elegantly furnished designer's workroom and conference room where designers may meet with their clients in private.
