So, we have been talking a lot lately about big changes coming to Potomac West and we think it is time to spill the beans. Potomac West & our dealers will be moving spaces around the shop – adding new merchandise and more selection. These changes will be complete in time for the October 1st Del Ray Art On The Avenue celebration! So, please bear with us over the coming weeks as we move things around!

We are excited about these changes because they mean more quality merchandise for you to choose from and a fresh look for you to enjoy. With that said, we always appreciate your feedback and would love to hear any ideas or requests you have for particular inventory or suggestions for how we can improve our shop.

This week you find savings around every corner AND downstairs! Dealer #109 is offering 30% off their entire stock of furniture and accessories. We often remind our customers that we have a downstairs where you will find fantastic pieces including the primitive bowl featured below. Make sure you check out our downstairs the next time you are in Potomac West!

How Much Is That Chair In The Window?


Sep 12, 2011 fall, furniture, rustic, vintage 0 Comments

With each new season we change the look of our front window, creating a different design and style vignette to reflect the inventory you can find in our store.

We just updated our window for fall and think you will be pretty excited to hear about what’s in it. 

The style of our current window is warm and rustic with pops of color from colored tin art panels and fabulous vintage books. There are two rustic side tables with one drawer and a cabinet – perfect in a living room or bedroom, these tables are priced at $128. The vintage rocking chair has a cane seat and is selling for only $70.

The rustic furniture of this window is accented with some really interesting and unique vintage accessories. There is a vintage Argus C3 camera with leather carrying case and lens – which is functional but also serves as an accessory. Beautifully textured vintage books that when stacked, add a layer of warmth and sophistication. There are also vintage glass bottles that fill and empty space beautifully and give a sense of whimsy. The hand carved wooden box is perfect for holding treasures or displaying on a table top. There are two kneeling Asian figures that look fabulous on a floor or as a statement piece on a shelf. The colored tin panels are made by a local artist and are available in large and small sizes. There is also a vintage stained glass piece in the window, which gives any room that rustic feeling.

We LOVE the look of our new fall window – it is so easy to achieve a warm, rustic look by adding just a few of the pieces we featured above!

If you have any questions or want more information about the items available, give us a call at 703-519-1911!
