Name: Caroline Robe (Woodworker) and Magritte Nankin (Ceramic and Textile Artist)
Location: Chicago, Illinois
Size: 2,000 square feet
Years lived in: 1.5 yrs (Caroline), 3 months (Magritte)
Caroline and Magritte’s large home in Chicago is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced, and it had a profound effect on me when I had the opportunity to visit them. I say that it was profound for this reason: never have I been in a home that was such a deep and meaningful representation of its inhabitants. This home did not strive to be like anyone else’s home; there were no furniture store catalogs to be found, no DIY projects discovered on Pinterest; no trapping of the illusion that the home was perfectly finished or arranged. Instead, it is a space that has been cared for by these two artists, a woodworker and a ceramics/textile artist, and which in the process, has cared for them.
