Aldo Bernardi Rustic Lighting at Anthony Inc.
Anthony Bellon’s new showroom, Anthony Inc., is adding a line to its wide selection of furnishings, wall coverings, lighting, trims, and textiles. The lighting designs of Aldo Bernardi, who has been handcrafting his Farmhouse Modern Collection in northern Italy for more than 30 years, have taken center stage at the River North showroom. Bernardi’s designs integrate porcelain, stone, brass, copper and glass, and include residential and commercial lighting for indoors and out. We’re charmed by the rustic-industrial Sarson 6600, left, and the maritime-inspired Cambusa, right.
Bellon had been represented at Muse Group nearby; as was Lynda O’Conner’s Textures. See her work now in Bellon’s showroom; she creates beautifully layered pillows by incorporating new and antique fabrics collected from her global travels.
The Anthony Inc. showroom is to the trade and by appointment only, 444 N. Wells St., 312-321-0847.
