There are only a rare few true originals available in the consumer market. Most originals today reside in museums and galleries. Licensed brand holders have also since taken liberties to modify the originals, incorporating the use of modern manufacturing technology and improved materials. Though modern classic designers once held patents, they have expired for decades and thus become accessible for replication.
“Industry” summons more charming thoughts today than those of manufacturing smokestacks in obscure lands. For all its symbolic meaning or not, it has evolved into a reference of style. Those who have a taste for the industrial look are set to be enraptured by Picket & Rail’s new staid and ravishing Chicagocollection.
Chicago is industrial by character, not merely borrowing from the aesthetic. Its material, form and engineering exude heavy duty strength. Every feature celebrates the power of mechanism, of technology and of contraption, reinforcing the collection’s industrial character.
Cavalli Italia sofas and beds are unique in that an entire series of furniture was developed and designed to accompany them. They accent the design virtues of the sofas and beds.

The license plate on that old Chevy. The painting of the coquettish lass leaning on the door posts of the old mansion up the hill. The farmer’s shovel, the blacksmith’s mallet, cannon balls and rifles. The crowned stone statue with a book in one hand and a torch in the other.
The picket fence.
Americana is an artifact—a remnant of the greatest nation in history’s books.
Americana is where our gaze melts into the understanding and recognition of meaning and fact.
