Whether you’re looking to simply spruce up your living room or completely redo your bedroom, these three stores have unique, quality furniture you’ll love.
From mid-century modern mirrors to comfy sectional couches, the right piece of furniture can add undeniable allure and pizzazz to your home--but finding the perfect accessory can take some time and effort. If you’re looking for a new piece of furniture to liven up your Washington, D.C. property but aren’t quite sure where to find it, here are three stores you might want to visit.
If modern furniture is your jam, Modern Mobler
is the shop for you. In 2010, owner Douglas Meyers turned his passion for vintage furniture into a business that now spans over 15,000 square feet of showroom and storage space. The beloved shop boasts one of the largest collections of mid-century modern American and European furniture from the '50s to '70s on the entire East Coast. The inventory changes weekly, which means there's always some great new accessory to discover. Whether you're looking for fine wood furniture, funky paintings, or unique lamps, you can find all of that (and more) here.
There are few statement pieces more timeless than a handmade piece of furniture. And Thos. Moser
, a handmade furniture shop with pieces that range from classic to contemporary, is the go-to place for interested buyers in the area. In 1972, college professor Tom Moser left teaching to recover the art of woodworking by creating original pieces of handmade furniture in a Maine workshop. Today, he has a handful of outposts across the U.S., including one in D.C. The tables, chairs, bookcases, and other wood-based wonders are created from sustainably harvested North American hardwoods--mainly black cherry from Pennsylvania and walnut from Missouri.
Opened in 1997 by Pixie Windsor, Miss Pixie's
is a funky antique and furniture shop. The building is constantly stuffed to the brim with original new pieces each Wednesday, most of which find a new home by the end of the week. All of the pieces are bought at auction, which means you won't be able to sell pieces you no longer need there. But if you’re in the mood to peruse through one-of-a-kind pieces to see what might be the perfect new addition to your home, this is the place for you.
