Deborah Kalkstein, owner of Contemporaria, is expanding her domain with the October 21 opening of DC’s first Alessi showroom in Cady’s Alley. The Italian company’s innovative, modern and often playful objects for the home, table and office will be the perfect complement to Contemporaria’s furniture and lighting collections.
“I grew up admiring the company’s extraordinary pieces and admired all the famous architects and designers who were committed to the concept,” says Kalkstein, “so I always thought that both my world and the Alessi world were totally connected.” Alessio Alessi, CEO of Alessi, will be present for the opening celebration. Alessi DC is located at 3319A Cady’s Alley in Georgetown; 202-298-0407. alessi.com
