Natural Evolution

After more than two years in the works, luxury home furnishings company Bradley Hughes is now, simply, Bradley. Although the name may have gotten smaller, don’t be fooled: Everything else with the company seems to be expanding, and at rapid speed. Expect to see collaborations with well-known designers and a transition into more of a multi-line showroom—the next natural step for this 11-year-old company’s evolution. Bradley, which has showrooms at both ADAC and The Merchandise Mart in Chicago, is perhaps best known for its furnishings, lighting and accessories available in an extensive range of materials and fully customizable finishes (think antiqued mirror, reclaimed wood, concrete and painted glass). Fine art, wallpaper and custom-printed textiles also are part of the company’s oeuvre, and Bradley is adding the works of a number of artisans to its roster of offerings. A newly revamped website now showcases all of the company’s more than 200 products. (404) 814-9595;
