Designed in the mid-1950s by George Nelson, the Nelson Pedestal Stool is the perfect example of elegant versatility. With a beautiful sculptural base and upholstered seat, this small (it’s only 15″ diameter and 19.5″ high) yet functional stool work well in casual living spaces where you may need multiple seats as well as smaller spaces such as foyers or walk-in closets.
With four base finishes and a large selection of upholstery options, you can customize this stool to match your personality and design aesthetic.
One of the more popular “lines” from the Herman Miller Collection is Ray and Charles Eames’s Molded Plywood Chairs. They come with a great story of creativity, innovation and what great teamwork can really bring to the world of furniture design. Well, Herman Miller has taken their beautiful designs and updated them with the option of upholstery.
That’s right, starting on November 5th as part of the Herman Miller Collection you could and can order the Molded Plywood Dining Chairs and the Molded Plywood Lounge Chairs with an upholstered seat and back. They’ve started with a varied offering of upholstery that give you even more personalization options (on top of wood veneer choices, and leg options).
All configurations of the Eames Molded Plywood Chairs are included in the Herman Miller Holiday Sale and qualify for 15% off through December 10th, 2012.

Just last week Herman Miller introduced The Herman Miller Collection and, luckily for you, the pieces contained within this collection are all part of the Herman Miller Holiday Sale starting November 19th.
But what is The Herman Miller Collection?
“Drawing on George Nelson’s timeless vision of the ‘continuing creation of a permanent collection designed to meet fully the requirements for modern living,’ we introduce the Herman Miller Collection. This comprehensive portfolio offers a breadth and depth of products to furnish complete environments in a variety of settings, both elegant and casual, across a range of prices.
Each piece is considered in relation to the whole–the rooms where it will be used and the people who will use it. Living and Lounge offerings welcome rest as well as work. Meeting and Dining pieces navigate the moments when we gather around a table to share food or ideas. Working and Storage solutions address the technology and flexibility needed to achieve work goals now. Outdoor furnishings prepped to withstand the elements and crafted using the same design philosophy allow work and play to effortlessly move beyond the indoors.
Within the Collection, you’ll find updated archival pieces, furnishings from partners who share our values, and new designs from today’s top talent–a bridge between Herman Miller’s past, present, and future. Seen together, in every type of environment, you realize they speak the same language, and are built from the same set of timeless design principles that have always guided Herman Miller. Problems are solved together. Beauty, then, naturally follows.”

It looks like Vastu has made past the nominating period and into the voting round of making it onto Washington Post’s Express Best of 2012 list and for that we thank you.
It takes just a few seconds and you can even vote for several other small and local, independently-owned businesses in other categories (like Pulp for Best Gift Shop, for example).
We wouldn’t be where we are today without the great relationships we’ve built with you, our customers, over the many years we’ve been here on 14th Street, so we thank you again for your votes!
KnollTextiles has a history of cool collaborations with other companies and designers like Proenza Schouler, Rodarte, and Abbott Miller from Pentagram, just to name a few. The latest to be added to this list is wallpaper company Trove.
Trove specializes in wallcoverings that contain “large scale photographic and impressionistic qualities that are mainly organic in nature.”
When Trove design duo Jee Levin and Randall Buck teamed up with Dorothy Cassonas, Creative Director of KnollTextiles, they created the Vivid Collection. The Vivid Collection for KnollTextiles includes three patterns in various colorways and each one has “a painterly expressionistic effect and large scale design” perfect for spaces that need an accent wall.

And in related wallpaper news, we’ve changed out the wallpaper in our small alcove near the front of the Vastu showroom! Stop by this weekend and check it out.
Every year, the Washington Post’s Express newspaper (found at Metro stations and other newsstands all over the metro area) asks for the public’s input and compiles a list of the “Best” places in the District for everything from “Best Movie Theater” to “Place to go with someone else paying”. After all is said and done, the Express’s “Best Of” list becomes a go-to guide to DC as voted on by you!
This is a great opportunity to vote for your favorite local businesses, restaurants and venues…including Vastu!
If you love what we do as much as we do, we’d love your vote for best Home Store under the Shopping section. Head here to the official voting page and show us some love!
