CB2 opens in Georgetown!

Last night I was so excited to get a sneak peak of the HUGE new CB2 which is opening this weekend in Georgetown. After both potterybarn and west elm closed in the city, we really lost all locations for inexpensive, fun home items.

CB2 offers fun, colorful and modern home furnishings and accessories at a startingly low pricepoint (no, they didn't pay me to say that!). While I wouldn't advise filling an entire apartment or house with their products (overkill), a piece or two in a room really would liven up any space by adding color and good, clean design.I loved this green coffee table, the wheels really are so practical!The red metal shelf over the bed really caught my eye; not just for the pop of color but also for the unique shelf layout. I could see this in an office or even a bathroom, providing extra storage.These 3 Pablo side tables were my favorite piece of furniture in the store. The best part -the set is ONLY $129. SERIOUSLY. They look like amazing mid-century pieces to me!This 'Fold' desk was very elegant; I loved the yellow top and the lady bug rug was so fun; great for a kids room (especially at $199)!Speaking of rugs, they carry FLOR tiles in store! I had never actually seen them in person and was surprised by their quality.More than just furniture, their accessories are an easy and even less expensive way to add some color to your house. This buddha pillow would bring a smile to my face everyday for sure.

Yellow seems to be the really big color everyone is pushing. These yellow canary tealight holders were so cute. I could see them lining your kitchen table, much like they do this headboard.

Or use them to decorate your houseplants! A percentage of sales from this weekend (April 30-May 1) will go to benefit the Capital Area Food Bank; a great excuse to shop for a great cause!
CB2 is located at 3307 M Street NW, across from Cadys alley.

We have 2 Ikeas but they are out in the suburbs. I'm not a fan -their quality is so bad and their design isn't quite 'right' generally.

Jealous! Pottery barn must be downsizing. They closed the store on walnut in shadyside. Don't worry, toadflax is still here!

Gregory -I saw that when I was home for Easter!! So sad....I remember how up in arms people were when Pottery barn opened replacing a famous jazz club. I'm sure they'll miss it now!

I get their mailings, because we have furniture form C&B, but I have never had a chance to shop at 2. Lucky you!

I love CB2 ! I purchased the white lacquer console table and couldn't be happier with the quality. The price was amazing $149.00. :)

Also, CB2 is open now. GM went to an opening party for it on Friday, and it was just weird. It was like they imported chic party-goers from New York to sip champagne on the couches while being photographed. How do you get that job?
