Chicago Source for Right Size Furniture


There is so much focus today on the interior design trend of downsizing. I prefer the term rightsizing because that’s really what you’re doing – making changes in your living space to reflect your current lifestyle. With this has come the need to adjust the furnishings in your living space.

You still want your furniture to feel comfortable, look luxurious and meet your room’s requirements. You may have smaller rooms. You may have fewer rooms. And your rooms may serve dual purposes, such as, your living room also serves as a family room/den; the dining area doubles as an in-home office; and the second bedroom has workout equipment.

One of the solutions is the size and scale of your furniture. Most retail furniture stores do not offer smaller scale furnishings that still have a sumptuous, big look. That’s where A. Rudin Inc. fills this niche nicely.

Located in the Merchandise Mart, A. Rudin Inc. is a family owned furniture manufacturer since 1912. Based in Los Angeles, all A. Rudin furniture is made in the U.S. The line includes upholstery and casegoods, along with fabrics, leather and Novasuede. Their furniture designs have been made larger to fill the scale of Hollywood mansions and small enough to fit a New York City pied-à-terre

To complement the line, the Chicago Showroom also features Hellman Change, contemporary hand carved casegoods; Henry Royer, contemporary stainless steel and wood tables; John Pomp Studios, contemporary lighting and casegoods; Lobmeyr, contemporary crystal lighting; Matthew Studios, boutique lighting and tables; and Phoenix Day, classic lighting.
