Smart Shopping Debuts

A trio of new showrooms comes to the DC area

RUE IV
Rue IV opened in the Washington Design Center on November 1. The to-the-trade showroom inherited the location of J. Lambeth, a 40-year fixture on the DC design scene led by Jim Lambeth and his late wife Ann. Rue IV represents a range of manufacturers including Fabricut, Zimmer + Rohde, JAB, Porta Romana, Verellen and Travers (whose Style Moderne passementerie collection is pictured, left). Owner Janine Guerin, who runs Rue IV with husband Jay, looks forward to continuing the Lambeths’ legacy, affirming “We want to be true partners with designers.” 202-646-1774; ruefour.com

ROOM & BOARD
To complement its flagship store on 14th Street in DC, Room & Board unveiled a 3,900-square-foot outpost in Bethesda on November 12. The showroom carries the company’s timeless indoor and outdoor furnishings and office collections. More than 90 percent of Room & Board’s products are made by American craftspeople. Pieces in the company’s Urban Wood Project collection are created in partnership with nonprofits that hire residents with barriers to employment to reclaim lumber from abandoned buildings across the U.S. 7236 Woodmont Avenue; roomandboard.com

SANABRIA & CO., THE SHOP
Designer Melissa Sanabria opened a home-décor boutique in her Capitol Hill neighborhood on October 29. Offerings range from throw pillows and candles to one-of-a-kind vintage rugs. The designer—whose inventory represents small brands that embrace sustainability, charitable causes or ownership by women—looks forward to serving her community in person. “We’ve all been doing so much online shopping,” she explains. “I wanted to create a place where people can experience the merchandise, connect and get inspired.” Sanabria plans to host workshops and feature local makers and artists in the shop. 409 East Capitol Street, SE; sanabriaandco.com
