Congrats to a friend!!

Happy Friday- HURRRRRAYYY!!!!!

My good friend, Elise Seidita, recently opened her new design center- The Design Center of Northern Virginia!  I'm so happy for Elise & she's created a super-functional to-the-trade showroom for designers where we can view fabrics, wallcoverings, furnishings, lighting and even one-of-a-kind accessories & artwork.  To kick off the new year, Elise is having a sample sale - on everything- on the showroom floor.

The showroom is located in Herndon, Virginia, and the sale will be open for one week for designers only (Jan 16th-27th) and the second week to the general public (Jan 30th-Feb 3rd) and they will be offering trade only items at 10% less than designer's net price. (!!!) 

{I COVET that old factory table you see in the background...  would be such a beautiful island!!  ahhh no one buy that please ;) ;)

Elise has stocked the showroom with lots of cool one-of-a-kinds and some great upholstered pieces like sofas & chairs.

(On the showroom floor, they have sofas/chairs/case goods by Vanguard, Hickory Chair, Nichols and Stone, John Richards, lighting by Ralph Lauren/Visual Comfort and Currey & Co, plus one off pieces and accessories.  The Madhatter chairs I used in the DC Design House last Spring are also there and they are an insane deal right now!) 

Elise has been so supportive of me from the day we met (2 years ago) and has really encouraged me to follow my dreams & to dream even bigger ones.  She is a really special person who is extremely driven & determined, and sees no limit for potential & I really admire her.  So many things could have stopped her from opening the showroom but she never gave up & kept on trusting that she could make it happen.  She has worked tirelessly  to get the showroom up and running and her business has grown so much - even in this tough economy-  and I'm so excited for her.  So, if you're looking for the perfect piece to fit somewhere at home or for an amazing deal, please be sure to stop by the sale!! 

Designers' Week-Jan 16th-27th
General Public Week- Jan 30th-Feb 3rd
(9:30 AM- 5:00 PM every day)
