Italianate - 225 13th St. Anderson Furniture Co.

Tall narrow arched windows accented by brick crowns on the third floor show the Anderson Furniture Store to be a brick Italianate building. The traditional wide projecting cornice at the top is embellished with beautiful brick corbelling, the decorative and often structural stepping out of the bricks. A lovely little balcony and the triangular pediment above, reminiscent of the square cupolas common to the Italianate style, draw attention to the entrance.
