I recently had the opportunity to attend the opening of Anita Fern in Dallas. What a spread! The build out of the space inside and out are wonderful. The owners and the architect worked to provide a retail space that pays tribute to the Wright prairie style. I loved the fireplace with the 60 year old never used roman bricks and if you go you must check out the bathrooms.

The balconies add to the sense of space in a way that give you the same feeling of layers of architecture you expect in a Wright building.

And by the way, the merchandise is a great mixture of Wright, Stickley, Roycrofters and others. A fun time for any one in the area!

Good morning,
I have looked for this store online and have been unable to find a listing, address, etc. I saw a reference to the store on PBS. Do you have an address, phone number or anything else? Maybe I don't have the name of the store correct.
Thank you,
LuRuth Crawford Taylor

Are the owners decendants of Anita?

from their website:
Aneita Fern is the matriach of our family and the inspiration for our store. In many ways, she shares the same values and passions as Gustav Stickley, the master craftsman who created the Stickley heirloom furniture collectibles. Aneita Fern and Gustav lived in the same era and both loved beauty in design, simplicity of form and the satisfaction that comes from owning generational pieces.

We hope to make every visit to Aneita Fern | Stickley a memorable one for each customer and we are certain the 'antique for the future' you purchase from us today will be part of your family for the next 100 years.
