Lori Graham's innovative new showroom deftly combines fine art and design

Designer Lori Graham’s signature blend of fine art, luxury furnishings and vintage flair is now on display in her new showroom/design studio, located in DC’s trendy 14th Street Corridor. Showroom 1412 is a collaborative effort, combining Graham’s line of furnishings, LG Place, with the talents of gallery curator Lauren Gentile, who runs the fine art component of the showroom, Contemporary Wing; and of Mid-Century Modern furniture dealer Mike Johnson, who shuttered his beloved Georgetown boutique Sixteen Fifty Nine by MRJ last year and has since joined Graham’s team.

In the two-story space, Graham’s custom furnishings share space with a rotating art collection and Mid-Century Modern pieces—along with lighting by Ochre and furniture from Shine by SHO. “We hope the collaborative atmosphere created by the art gallery and working design studio surrounding Showroom 1412 will inspire designers and customers,” Graham says.

Showroom 1412 is open Monday through Friday or by appointment. 1412 14th Street, NW; 202-745-0018. showroom1412.com; contemporarywing.com.
