DESIGN INC. is the brainchild of Chicago Designer Bill Bruss. In the design industry for more then 25 years, Bill wanted to be able to showcase his favorite things and the great one-of-a-kind art pieces from his travels. The first store opened in the fall of 2004 with a limited selection of art and sculptures which was originally only available through a print catalog. 7 years later, what was a booklet has turned into a 1500 sq.ft. boutique located at 1317 West Grand Avenue featuring unique items from around the world. The selection has grown to a large selection of furniture, lighting, art & home accessories.

After being successful with Design Inc. Bill decided to open another location at 1647 West Grand Avenue called the Design Inc, Signature Collection.

Both stores can both be found in the up and coming Grand Avenue Design District. 

This new warehouse industrial strip has generated quite the buzz in the industry with store featuring antique wares, midcentury modern to the electric finds from old abandon buildings.
