Press Release: Nest Vintage Modern Lands in La Grange


Nest Vintage Modern Lands in La Grange
The sky is the limit for 2 area women with a soft spot for modern vintage style.

After 3 years as an eCommerce storefront and a year as a brick and mortar in nearby Brookfield, Nest Vintage Modern has made the next big step and moved to downtown La Grange, Illinois. They opened their doors on May 4th and will be open between now and the grand opening on Saturday, May 18th. That’s when things will be at full speed.


Nest Vintage Modern specializes in locally and regionally-procured goods made in small batches. “We prefer to deal with other small businesses whenever we can. It’s a major part of our core values as a business.”, says Waters-Piper. “As a result, we’ve developed not only a very special collection of products, but some great friendships. Our vendors feel like family to us.”


Home furnishings in the shop range from the early 1900’s through the mid-1960’s. There’s something for everyone who enjoys vintage home decor.


Emmick laughs, “A stroll through Nest frequently evokes comments like, ‘Oh! My grandmother had one of these!’ or ‘I haven’t seen one of those since I was a child.’ Or even, ‘I used to own those! They’re vintage now??’ We hear any combination of those every day.”


Most pieces in the shop have been revived and refinished by Emmick and Waters-Piper using environmentally-conscious low VOC Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan. They often run free demonstrations on weekends for DIY types.


New to La Grange, but somewhat seasoned, Nest has been profiled multiple times on Martha Stewart Radio and has earned a following of over 22,000 fans on Facebook. They were recently featured at the Midwest RePurposed Market in Ann Arbor hosted by HGTV’s Cari Cucksey of “Cash and Cari”.


Nest Vintage Modern is located at 26 S. La Grange Road at the corner of Calendar Court in downtown La Grange, IL. They specialize in vintage home decor, furnishings, and new gift ware, bath & body goods, accessories, and jewelry meant to appeal to compliment the vintage aesthetic. They also sell the complete Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan and products and will be continuing to offer furniture painting classes by certified Annie Sloan instructors at the new La Grange location.
