Darrel Dean

Georgetown, Washington DC, has a deep and fervent past predating the Capitol city. This humble village within the District plays host to a number of big box retailers and some intimately splendid private operations. Darrell Dean Antiques, located at 1524 Wisconsin Avenue NW, offers a veritable melange of product assortment sure to satisfy even the most staunch of furniture collectors. Not only do they entertain a location in Washington DC, but also in New York at Center 44, 222 East 44th Street NY, NY, and on 1st Dibs. So, in the vein of Maria of The Sound of Music please indulge me in perusing a few of my favorite things c/o Darrell Dean Antiques.

  1. i think you guy should have a trip here. flea markets are so full of vintage furnitures. not so fashionable, usually quite charming.

  2. Love the brass and leather chairs...

  3. Ooooo! Chairs with bamboo legs and the sofa and the bar! I could make a room of them!

  4. OMG. I'm kind of freaking out over that sofa. I would take it as is. It's a louche decadent artifact from another time. An art piece, really. Wonderful, wonderful, Signore Fazzini! xxx
