Breuer this, Mies that. A Gropius here, and an Aalto there.
When it comes to furniture, you’re all about the Euros. Still, (insert dramatic sigh) it can get awfully tedious, all that tripping over Saarinens and Le Corbusiers.
Time to swap a continent for a southern hemisphere. Pick up a little something for your house at Artefacto, the recently opened Georgetown shop that stocks Paulo Bacchi’s line of Brazilian furniture. Standout pieces include low glass and wood tables; modular sofas upholstered in rich, contemporary fabrics; and comfy leather and cane armchairs. The modern, minimalist designs mix easily together — and with your existing decor.
Bacchi uses only wood that has been approved by the Brazilian Environmental Department, which not only helps keep the forests sustainable (you’re such a good global citizen) but also guarantees that the piece you’re getting is authentic. Which your collection needs.
Because that Barcelona chair isn’t really from Spain.
Artefeacto, 3333 M Street NW, between 33rd and 34th Streets (202-471-5420).
