Trendsetter Darryl Carter

The DC designer spearheads a chic new collection

Trendsetter Darryl Carter The Darryl Carter Collection for Milling Road conveys a sense of understated grace. Known for his refined aesthetic, Carter combined classical looks with the clean lines of the mid-20th century in pieces ranging from case goods and upholstery to lighting, textiles, and
accessories. “The collection has a very individual spirit,” the designer says. “Some compositions may seem an odd amalgam, but that is highly deliberate. I am prone to contrasts, opposites and the tension between classical and modern. I like juxtaposing things that might otherwise never be placed with one another.”

Though a lawyer by training, Carter was always fascinated by design and shifted gears about 20 years ago to launch a successful interiors practice. He has written two best-selling books, and his eponymous boutique—located in a pre-Civil War carriage house in Shaw—reflects his timeless appeal and gathered sensibility.

“In this age of ‘instant,’ the home should remain a bastion of tranquility that expresses the individual,” he says. “No two homes should ever be the same.” The collection is available exclusively at Baker in DC’s Cady’s Alley. bakerfurniture.com
