Donghia, Luxe Home Furnisher, Moves to Cady's Alley Jan. 1
Donghia -- which specializes in decorative fabrics and furniture -- is relocating its home furnishings design trade showroom from the Washington Design Center to Cady’s Alley in the 3,413-square-foot retail property, currently occupied by home furnishings retailer M2L. Donghia will "establish a new, permanent home in Cady’s Alley and will move into its showroom Jan. 1, with a grand opening slated for late spring," according to property managers EastBanc, Inc., and Jamestown, which announced a 10-year lease by Donghia to occupy retail space in its Georgetown Renaissance property at 3334 Cady’s Alley, NW.
Founded by the late Italian-American designer Angelo Donghia, the luxury contemporary home furnishing collection sells exclusively to interior designers and architects through its showrooms. Its furniture is made in the U.S. and accessories are handmade in Italy in Murano, next to Venice.
“With a 40-year history at the forefront of the luxury home furnishings industry, Donghia is an excellent complement to the mix of design-oriented retailers that the Georgetown community is accustomed to, serving as a reminder that this retail corridor remains D.C.’s primary destination for luxury, design and fashion,” says Philippe Lanier, vice president of EastBanc.
"The Donghia lease agreement is part of a recent swell of Georgetown Renaissance leasing activity that includes stylish retailers such as Steven Alan, Calypso St. Barth, Bonobos, and Intermix," EastBanc and Jamestown noted in a company press release. "The Donghia deal also solidifies the westward movement in Georgetown of sophisticated lifestyle offerings and will complement current Cady’s Alley design tenants Design Within Reach, Contemporaria, Janus et Cie, Boffi-Maxalto and Baker Furniture, which recently signed a lease renewal to remain in Cady’s Alley for another ten years – an investment that reaffirms Baker’s commitment to Georgetown and Cady’s Alley."
