The Marshall Field and Company Building is the "grande dame" of
Chicago department store buildings, a Chicago School building
finely designed and detailed in the Classical Revival style. It is
significantly historical as the longtime headquarters of Marshall
Field and Company, one of the nation's most historically
important retail enterprises, and one of the finest historic
department stores in the nation. Built in stages over a
generation, the building is the work of Chicago's leading
architects, Daniel H. Burnham. The building is noteworthy for its
lavish interiors, including two atria decorated with stained glass
and Tiffany mosaics, and the much-beloved walnut room.
