View From the Top

Just blocks from the Late Victorian town houses of Logan Circle, the four-story Room & Board showroom on 14th Street attracts shoppers in search of 21st-century style. American-made home furnishings fill the airy spaces, from mid-century modern Eames chairs to salvaged wood table bases and delicate ceramic string lights. Customers choose from more than 300 fabrics (think menswear swatches like tweed and houndstooth), and pieces ship to out-of-towners nationwide. Room & Board’s circa-1919 building, once a Ford Model T showroom, has recently renovated and opened the fourth floor (occasionally a pro bono event space for nonprofits) with a wraparound rooftop patio for panoramic views.
