From it’s humble but hard-working origins as two partners installing draperies (from a station wagon) in the 1970s, J.L. Anthony has become the premier provider of custom drapery hardware in the United States.
“When we (with partner Bruce Lancaster) started growing our drapery business, we found a huge void in high-end hardware, says Philip Clemmons. You’d have these remarkable fabrics ready for installation, and very limited choices for showcasing the windows other than the odd finial here and there.
“We decided that a window treatment meant artisan poles and finials in finishes you’d expect from the finest furniture. No room would be complete without our materials, and we set up our studio, hired craftsmen and began selling to the trade.”
Decades later, J.L. Anthony has built the reputation of quality, reliability, consistency, and flexibility. Every order is truly custom built. All of the hardware is meticulously hand finished to the highest of standards. The innovative traversing systems allow for a wide range of functionality. The old world craftsmanship coupled with modern technology allows for the most beautiful motorized drapery treatments.
JLA has the technical and design wherewithal required to engineer, manufacture and install to demanding designers’ specifications. Our client service and design-assistive approach gives designers what they need, when they need it, to achieve what they want. J.L. Anthony takes the designer’s vision and translates it into a beautiful, functional work of art.
