Over the weekend we received the Harper Chair, a brand new style of side chair from Steven Anthony, and we absolutely love it!
While I don’t really expect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe to be doing a whole lot of celebrating today, it is great to know that his designs have lived on and become loved classics that are famous the world over.
Whether it’s something like the, much-copied and forged, Barcelona Chair…
Or the Crown Hall at the Illinois Institute of Technology (said to be his crowning achievement) that today’s Google Doodle is based on…
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was, and continues to be, a master of Modern, minimalist, “skin and bones” architecture.
While we’ve loved having Allen Russ’s work from City of Trees on display, we’re excited to welcome a new show from photographer Cassidy DuHon.
DuHon is an artist from DC who specializes in wedding photography and has been featured in The Knot Magazine as well as Time Out New York, Modern Luxury, Wedding Bee and District Weddings.
Regarding his work on exhibit at Vastu:
Between the eclectic and the excessive lie the recorded travels of Cassidy DuHon. Be it a blur of gothic Europe or a granular analysis of American overindulgence, Cassidy juxtaposes realistic photographic testimony with his own humorous suggestion. Landscapes and details are captured just as they were absorbed, some startlingly accurately and others animated in caricature. A series of giclée photographic prints gives voice to the split-second vulnerability of the unexplored and narrates Cassidy’s travels in technicolor commentary.
Check out some of his pieces you’ll be able to see (and purchase) here in the showroom!

We talk a lot about how much 14th Street is changing these days. How can you not? You can’t walk a single block without seeing some sort of new construction, renovation or demolition. It’s amazing to think about how different our lovely corridor looked a couple of years ago.
Know what’s even more amazing? Actually seeing how different parts of 14th Street looked in the early to mid-1900s.
The Ruined Capitol, a blog from Jacobsen Architecture LLC…
“is a photo reserve dedicated to the comparison of architecture, culture and society in Washington, D.C. that have been destroyed, replaced or miraculously preserved during the great architectural purge of the Federal City from 1930 to the 1990s.”
On it, you can see archived photos from the past and compare them to recent photos and Google Maps Street Views. Here are just a few you might recognize from the street we call home…
Storage is one of those things you never hear people complain of having too much of (and if you are complaining, call me…let’s trade houses). So when a piece of furniture comes with hidden built-in storage space, we get excited.
Enter, the Shaw Uplift Storage Bed.

It is a fabulous and sunny 80 degrees here in DC and the only thing we can think about is being outside. Whether we were getting lunch, a coffee or just soaking up the Vitamin D the beautiful weather has made us all the more excited for a few new products available from Herman Miller.
It’s the Eames(R) Aluminum Group for Outdoors!
If you’ve done anything on Google within the past several hours, you’ll have noticed today’s doodle for this holiday that ranges from a general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women’s economic, political and social achievements.
We’re big fans of equality in all its forms so International Women’s Day is right up our alley, especially when you think about all the great female designer’s that have contributed to the furniture, interior design and architectural industries. Here’s just a few… Read more
