From an email:

“I’m writing from Hudson & Crane, DC’s newest furniture, design, and lifestyle brand, in the heart of adams morgan/ u st corridor. You may have seen ads introducing The Shay luxury apartment community that has gone in at 9th and U st NW. We designed and installed the model apartment for them (as well as their lobby), which can be seen from The Brixton as well as Nellies.

The Shay has dozens of floorplans and hundreds of rooms to choose from in this interesting and asymmetrical building.  Likewise, having done design work for The Shay we are extending a promotion to all lessees at The Shay of 10% off of all furniture, lighting, and rugs with a signed lease through 2015 as well as 15% off of our design services through 2016 should a client wish to book those services with us. Attached are a few shots of our work in the model. The graffiti wall art was done by local artist Kelly Towles.

We just finalized a deal today to open up our SECOND location. It will actually be on the ground level in the retail space that is opening up under The Shay. Our spot will be facing 8th st, around the corner from the Lobby with a great line up of other restaurants and shops as well. Also, while our main showroom in Adams Morgan deals in furniture, decor, gifts, and interior design services, this new location will offer primarily gift and decor options to holiday shoppers.”

And across the street from the coming Takoda, in the new Shay building, is the new Chrome Industries location. Chrome’s website says:

“For over a decade, the creative communities throughout every major city have used Chrome bags, footwear and outerwear to help them survive the demands of the city. Wrenched is a tribute to these people and the cities in which they live and create in. Through each of their own unique perspectives, we’re given an insight to the best of everything their neighborhoods have to offer. This isn’t a guide to the same old played out tourist traps that you’ve already heard about a million times over. This is a glimpse into each city that we feature as told by its locals. This is the real-real … For tourists and lifers, alike.”
