Century Furniture: "Washington DC Style"

Recent travels have brought us to our nation's capital and a visit to the Century Furniture Showroom in Washington DC. Nestled among monuments and museums, the Washington Designer Center is a great resource for designers (and the public, as the design center allows browsing and has a "Entree-Access to Design" service that can facilitate buying)and our showroom is a beautiful showplace of all "things Century".

Centrally located on 300 D Street SW the design center is convenient to the metro as well as both Union Station Train Station and Regan National Airport. There is a public garage located in the center and an array of coffee shops and restaurants for those wanting to make it a day trip for design!

Our showroom is located on the 6th floor and features an assortment of Century collections in all our categories: upholstery, casegoods, outdoor, textiles and accessories (including lamps, mirrors, artwork). In addition to Century product we also carry more accessory-type lines from other manufacturers - one of a kind pieces, rugs and many more accessories. Everything you need for a stunning home!

Our display and assortment is constantly evolving as we bring in new exciting product. I thought I would share some photographs for your enjoyment and inspiration!

(A chest from our new Tribeca Collection.)

(A graceful china from the Wellington Court collection, flanked by two arm chairs from the Oscar de la Renta collection.)

(Our 1000 Series sectional - a versatile collection and this is a great configuration.)

(An accent piece, barnacle vase, love how it serves as a fresh way to display flower buds!)

(Blue & white porcelain - one of the most chic, timeless accessory stories!)

(Just one setting of our outdoor collection - inside or out, you decide ....)

(A very sophisticated black, gold and tan classical room.)

(And the coordinating sofa, very elegant.)

(Oscar de la Renta for Century Furniture, my personal favorite: our Mother-of-Pearl Bunching Cocktail Tables.)

(A pretty nook with a traditional, damask settee.)

(The designer work area holds all necessary sample references and options; also provides a quiet corner for inspiration.)
