We had the pleasure of chatting with the dapper, charming Crate and Barrel co-founder Gordon Segal back in October at the opening of the Marimekko shop-in-shop within the NYC flagship. Gordon and his wife, Carole, founded the company in 1962 in an old elevator factory in Chicago; now, the Segals have listed one of their Chicago-area properties for $6.9M. It's not actually their home—they live just next door—but in 2008 they spent $4.475M to use the 10,000-square-foot manse, on 2.4 acres, as Carole's renovation project. And yes, the listing photos do show a whole host of items from Crate and Barrel—Curbed Chicago dig some digging and identified a few. Perhaps we'll turn this into a game of "Where's Waldo?"
