Hector Zarate and James Nixon started Toro Mata as a stand at Eastern Market, specializing in Peruvian home accessories, and relocated to Adams Morgan a couple of years ago.

This is where to go once you've installed your new Lack shelves and need something unique to put on them...

Hector and James stock imports in a wide variety of styles, all made by artisans in Peru, so you'll find things like traditional black-and-white chulucanas pottery as well as colorful contemporary art. This is a great place to find exotic stuff to mix in with the usual home fare, and the shop's white walls and gallery-like lighting show off everything impressively. Hector is really friendly and knowledgeable (haven't met James yet), and local delivery is free. >> www.toromata.com
