Foundry moves to Washington's trendy Atlas District

Vintage Style The  up-and-coming H Street Corridor in DC’s Atlas District has just welcomed a new addition. Transplanted from U Street, the home-design mecca Foundry is owned by designer Yvette Freeman, who conceived the store as a showcase for vintage furnishings and accessories. Though Foundry carries new items such as candles and linens, the merchandise is 90 percent vintage, with a range of pieces that Freeman finds and refurbishes herself. 

The new 4,000-square-foot showroom more than doubles the size of the previous store. “The move gives us space for my workroom, plus storage and a design studio under one roof for the first time,” Freeman says. In addition to upholstered furniture and casegoods, the showroom offers textiles, fabric,  rug samples and lighting. Freeman has also launched a vintage clothing division, Foundry Threads.

Foundry is tucked between H and I Streets in an alley called Atlas Court that was recently designated by the city as historic. The new store occupies a two-story space that began life as a carriage house in the 1930s —a vintage that makes it the perfect fit for Foundry. 819 11th Street Rear, NE; 571-277-5245. foundrybyfreeman.com
