Congrats to Allen Russ and the Trust for the National Mall for being featured on NBC 4 here in DC.
From NBC 4 Washington,
“A local artist brings attention to the plant life along the National Mall, in hopes of preserving the plants for years to come.”
Remember, a portion of the proceeds from each piece sold go directly to the Trust for the National Mall. Restoration work has already started on the National Mall, as featured by Prince of Petworth, and is hoped to be completed by December 2012.

It was while watching last night’s episode of Glee, that co-owner Eric Kole noticed the Aluminum Dining Table and black Bertoia Side Chairs in a scene with Ms. Corcoran and Puck (played by Idina Menzel and Mark Salling, respectively). This got us to thinking…we actually see a lot of the products we sell and fabrics we offer on TV shows on a fairly regular basis, and we LOVE IT!
Like on the new ABC show Suburgatory, the new folks in town (the Altmans) own a Cyclone Dining Table and Eames Wire Chairs (George Altman, played by Jeremy Sisto, is an architect as was Charles Eames).
Now while we’re not saying you have to come out and immediately buy what you see on these popular TV shows, this can be a fun and entertaining way to see these great pieces in different settings. Stay tuned as we keep an eye out for more TV appearances of Vastu products and fabrics!
