Art Van Furniture unveils Rockford franchise

Staff ReportIMG_6392

On Thursday Art Van Furniture held the ribbon cutting to unveil their newest Illinois franchise at 7047 Newburg Road. This location is Art Van’s first franchise in the Chicagoland area.

The new Art Van franchise is in the former Ingrassia Interior Elements location and is owned by Rose Ingrassia-Belida and Brian Belida.

The original Ingrassia store opened in 1922 as a furniture and hardware store owned by brothers Nunzio and Joe Ingrassia, and over the years it has changed locations several times. In 1999 it was purchased by Rose and Brian Belida who then renamed it Ingrassia Interior Elements and moved it to its current Newburg Road location.

The new Art Van location will feature a state-of-the-art Art Van PureSleep and Art Van Clearance Center.
