About Chicago’s Classic Drapes

John Anthony - Owner of Classic Drapery, Chicago ILHi folks, I’m John Anthony owner and founder of Classic Drapes. I started my family owned drapery business 40 years ago when I was 20 years old. I graduated high school at 18 and went to 2 years of classic chef training, when I was learning how to be a chef I was introduced to the draper business by my aunt who lived in Oaklawn at that time. As I was learning to be a chef I was sewing and installing drapes for my aunt. That is when I realized I wanted to be in the drapery business so here I am 40 years later still going strong.
