The space we are offering is a direct reflection of the fortune we are surrounded with. Collecting Mid Century Modern design is something we started doing as a young couple and we at one time had a very popular store in Washington DC selling period furniture. We understand how a beautiful, large, comfortable space can help a person unwind after a long day. Life now has us moving in a slightly different but even more exciting direction. I’m a Art Director for the book division of National Geographic. This experience has allowed me to meet some of the most incredible people exacting true change in todays world. My husband has worked for Whole Foods Market. His job in sourcing seafood for 50 stores has put him in the unique position to play a real role in promoting sustainable fisheries. By far the most amazing part of our lives would be our two beautiful boys who make the sunrise each day for us. Little pieces of all these fortunes reflect in the space we’d like to share with you!
