AT DC: AndBeige – “Beige and then some….”
This is from DC finalist, Thomas. Comment away!
AndBeige sits quietly on Florida Avenue in NW. The space is painted
ivory with a dusty chocolate brown ceiling, a neutral background to display high fashion pieces. The feeling is warm, stylish and worldly. It is on my list of stores where I would love to live. Walking through the store, I feel as if I am actually walking in the homes featured in Elle Decor magazine…
The displays are appealing without feeling cluttered. One may think beige equals boring. AndBeige says calm not boring. While the prices are higher than your big-box stores, the pieces are far from big-box or cookie cutter. There are layers of pattern, textures and design. Also, you can customize most pieces using the assortment of fabrics along the back wall or bring your own fabrics.
If you are not in the market for a piece of furniture, AndBeige is a great resource for accessories, bedding and books. Many of the accessories are inexpensive.
For those that live outside of the city or outside of the DC metro area, check out the website: www.andbeige.com.
