Over the last few weeks, Suzanne interviewed several talented artists and designers. She was thoroughly impressed. When Suzanne met Yvette though, she knew she'd found a kindred spirit and the perfect fit for the space upstairs.
Here's a little more about our newest addition...
FOUNDRY was a dream for designer/picker Yvette Freeman for many years. Having been in the Corporate world for more than 20 years, Yvette decided on her 40th birthday that there was no time like the present, she wasn't getting any younger and WHY NOT take the leap and follow her dreams? She quit her job and opened her Flagship store in DC's Arts & Design District at 1522 U ST NW not two short months later.
Now more than two years old, still going strong, FOUNDRY has joined the amazing team at The Old Lucketts Store, the original Vintage Hip Pioneers themselves. Just as in the DC store, FOUNDRY will offer the most unique furniture and design wears for your home along side of intriguing objects and collectables that help you tell your personal Style Story, one piece at a time. Weather your style is modern, traditional or funky, FOUNDRY has a mix of it all and most of it is truly Vintage.
If you ask Yvette why she is so passionate about working in this business she will tell you that "everyone deserves to live in a beautiful space that tells their story, my job is to help them collect the pieces that represent their journey the best".
Here are a few more pictures of Yvette's style for you to drool over.
And a few more of her recently completed space at Lucketts!
Welcome to Lucketts Yvette!
We wish you lots of continued success!
