I’m Aly, the founder and owner of La Bella Luce European Antiques. I have been blessed with the opportunity of living in Europe for ten out of the last twenty years. I have been able to experience, first hand, the laid-back life style, wonderful cuisine, and timeless European décor.
I am also a proud military spouse and mother of two beautiful children, Bella and Jack.
During our first tour in Italy, we were fortunate to have lived in Piazzola Sul Brenta, the home of Villa Contarini. The last Sunday of each month the town hosts the largest outdoor antique market in Northern Italy. I spent many hours at the market shopping and cultivating friendships with Italian vendors. I have returned to Italy every year and I carefully select special one of a kind pieces to share with my dear clients and La Bella Luce friends. Everything I select represents the beauty and glamour of Italy and comes with generations of history.
La Bella Luce is your local resource for Italian chandeliers,
European antique furniture and beautiful textiles.
Located in historic Clifton, we have re-created the charm and beauty of Italy in the lovely countryside of Virginia.
Our inventory originates from fine hotels, shops and estates of the Veneto region. Each unique piece has been hand selected and is sure to please a variety of design styles.
We also offer an array of home accessories such as lamps, ceramics, dough bowls, demi johns, Italian soaps and papers, candles, French linens and more.
The next time you’re on Main Street in Clifton, stop in and say hello! Meet our “shop girls”, all military spouses, who share my love of design and all things Italian.
