West Elm will open a new location in Washington D.C. on Thursday, October 23.
Located in Logan Circle, the store will be more than 14,500 square feet and will feature a curated selection of products made by local D.C.-area artists. The store will also feature an expanded West Elm Market assortment including products for the functional areas of the home.
“The Washington D.C. area has an incredible group of makers, designers and crafters who we’re excited to showcase and introduce to our customers,” said Jim Brett, West Elm president.
According to the company, the Logan Circle store will open with a first look at the retailer’s holiday assortment, which includes an expanded collection of dining and entertaining pieces, as well as new collaborations and handcrafted pieces from Haiti, India, Peru and the Philippines.
This marks the second D.C.-area West Elm store; the first located in Georgetown. The new store will incorporate temporary and permanent art installations that are inspired by the environment, culture, architecture and heritage of the area including a map of the nation’s capital made from reclaimed lathe wood and installations made from reclaimed, corrugated steel and weathered, industrial sliding doors.
