This Ultra-Chic Design Showroom Is Basically Our Dream Home
covetable art, vintage finds, and of-the-moment decor. But sometimes when we shoot for "eclectic," we land somewhere closer to "rummage sale." Enter, Showroom 1412, by Lori Graham Design, to help us pull off mix-and-match decor that actually works. Walking into the Logan Circle showroom, which just opened on Friday, is like walking into the home of a global-sophisticate friend — but one's whose stuff is all for sale. The displays are arranged less like a traditional boutique and more like the two-level, glass-walled, exposed-brick loft of our dreams — which makes it a haven for decoration daydreams. Should inspiration fail to strike among the carefully selected vintage wares and paintings, curated by Contemporary Wing gallery, head upstairs for a consultation with the interiors expert herself. Lori Graham specializes in creating spaces that she describes as, "customized, a tad edgy, and always comfortable" — so our style. It certainly beats the "crazy aunt's attic" look, right? Before you hit the showroom, take a gander at these snapshots of the showroom for some pre-appointment motivation. Where: Showroom 1412, 1412 14th Street NW; 202-745-0118.
