Multiple Choices
A collaborative creation of Swiss furniture manufacturer Vitra and Italian designer Antonio Citterio, the Suita Sofa system comes with a component to extend the back rest for greater head support, shelves that can be mounted onto the back and a platform that can double as a table or ottoman. Available with firm or soft cushions at Contemporaria in DC. 

Cocktail Hour
The Collins Bar from DC’s Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams features doors with a distinctive walnut veneer in a sunburst pattern, a polished stainless-steel base and back panel, and trim that runs the length of the doors. Inside, two adjustable glass shelves, a removable wood riser and a pull-out shelf provide space for storage.

Marvelously Minimal
The clean-lined, minimalist Delaney chair from Ethan Allen offers a modern take on the slipper chair, with updates that include crisp, curved lines and a generous seat. Available in leather, fabric or a combination of the two, with optional nailhead trim, at Ethan Allen showrooms in Maryland and Virginia.

A Simple Secretary
Designed and built by Hardwood Artisans, this secretary has a pull-down cover that conceals a sturdy desktop. Small drawers for pens or notepads and paper holders help keep things organized; the cover can be closed to hide clutter. Available in seven hardwoods and multiple stain options at Hardwood Artisans in Rockville and Alexandria.

The Brothers Keno
Twin brothers Leigh and Leslie Keno, who have been appraising furniture for PBS’s “Antiques Roadshow” since 1997, now have their own furniture line. Pictured here, The Flying Buttress, a console topped with waterfall bubinga (a blond wood with a swirling grain) above a hammered aluminum base. At Sheffield Furniture & Interiors in Rockville and Dulles.

Cushioned Comfort
The Hess sofa from DC’s Room & Board combines contemporary lines with deep cushions for comfort. Pictured here as a two-piece round sectional, the sofa is available in three styles and in eight hues of top-grain Fifth Avenue leather.
