We’re willing to guess that the last piece of furniture you bought that was made by a Swedish company has a shelf life of about <1 move — that is, it won’t last past your next move. Maybe the pegs will break, maybe a bit of water will have soaked into and engorged the press wood or maybe you’ll have lost that screw-wrench thingy. Don’t get us wrong, there’s a lot to admire about the design of Ikea furniture, but by and large, most of their pieces are not designed to last. Rarely do they use solid wood, quality dove-tail joints, or hardware forged by an artisan. We digress…
Our goal at ATTIC is to make this website a place where you can learn about amazing stores throughout the area and simplify the experience of shopping for antique, vintage and other used furniture. This means presenting you with a wide variety of styles and covering the DMV metro area as fully as possible. To that end, we’re pleased to announce the addition of two new stores located in Virginia for Americana, shabby chic, country and antique furniture lovers: Rust & Refind and Ginger Hill Antiques.
