Neat Neighborhood Find: The Brass Knob

Located at 2311 18th Street, NW in Adams Morgan, The Brass Knob, is another cool home furnishing shop. What differentiates this place from some of the others I’ve profiled is that this one focuses a bit more on antiques, particularly lighting. I spoke with owner Donetta George who told me that the Brass Knob has been open for 27 years! Apparently back in the day there were many antique shops in Adams Morgan. Another interesting fact I learned is that the Brass Knob was commissioned to do all the lighting at Temperance Hall (now Looking Glass Lounge). And you know how cool those lights are. Ms. George describes the store as primarily architectural antiques, lighting and hardware. So if you have an old school rowhouse and are looking to match one of the original door knobs this is definitely the store for you. And they also have some super cool stained glass.
