Tucked amidst the antique shops on Lovers Lane dwells Christy Drew Designs, the city’s newest residential interior design firm and furniture gallery. Owned by long-time designer Drew and her husband and business partner, Paul Johnson, this boutique brims with everything from French Country chic to contemporary classics — amongst them, these gorgeous circa-1840s Gustavian-style wing chairs hand-carved in walnut and washed in cream and gold milk paint. Their newly replaced seat cushions are the only things that belie their Swedish origins — even their burlap backs are as original as an Ingmar Bergman film. Christy Drew Designs, 5019 W.
