Thanks to a reader for sending a link to a Craigslist ad that says:
“HUNTED HOUSE, Vintage and Mid Century Modern, located at 1830 14th Street, NW for the last five years is counting down to opening day on the “hip”, “hot” H Street NE corridor in the next few weeks! Stay tuned for more details. In the meantime, we’re still bringing the Mid Mod to our apartment-style showrooms on 14th Street, NW. Check out our earlier listing for what’s new this week and come help us clear out as we get ready to bring you more in a shiny BRAND NEW, BIGGER space on H Street, NE. Hit “H” for HUNTED HOUSE!”
I spoke with owner Mark Johnson on Sunday who confirmed the move. He said they’ll still be open at 1830 14th Street, NW (2nd floor) for two more weeks and will be open at the new location at 510 H St, NE by May 1st. In addition to being bigger, a major advantage of the new 510 H St, NE location is that it has a ground floor entry.
“Hunted House is a case of accidental birth! Its two founders, Mark and Ed, came at it from different angles. Ed, an interior design professional has a true-love for furniture having sold it for many years.
Mark, who has always loved Art Deco and Mid Century furniture and has collected a house full of it over the years, knows that there are many others who love vintage furniture and want to find it at affordable prices. With his good eye for period pieces as many customers have noted, and Ed’s knowledge of furniture and design, the two started buying select vintage furniture, particularly Mid Century…”
You can take a look at some of their goods here.
The reader who originally wrote in said that, if true, this would be a huge gain for H Street. I couldn’t agree more – this is a fantastic score for H Street. First HR 57 moves from 14th St, NW to H St, NE and now Hunted House – could this be the beginning of a trend developing?
