McLean and Tircuit
Inspired to offer consumers high-end furniture, art and accessories typically available to the trade only, designer Sheryl McLean recently launched a boutique within the new studio of her firm, McLean and Tircuit, in Laurel’s historic district. “I gravitate towards pieces that are colorful, artisan-made and ethnically diverse,” she says. “I picked up many of these products at international markets.” Pop-ups will take place in the shop every month; the next ones happen on July 30 and August 27. By appointment only. 617 Main Street, Laurel; 301-430-0723. mcleanandtircuit.com

Marking its seventh location, Architessa has unveiled a 3,200-square-foot showroom in Georgetown. Look for a curated collection of tile, natural stone, luxury vinyl tile and wood flooring. “Our vision for the future includes supporting DC’s thriving design community,” notes CEO Betty Sullivan. The shop offers the city’s widest selection of porcelain slabs and is its only authorized dealer for Walker Zanger and Artistic Tile brands.
